Ruby’s Lube- Serious Motion Potion


The weather here has turned finally turned nice and we can all get outside once again, But not before lots and lots of hours being logged on the trainer. Normally my body takes quite a bit of abuse during the winter and I enter spring a bit torn-up and abused from all the stationary riding. Not this year!! I’m proud to say, I came through unscathed thanks to the help of Ruby’s Lube.

This stuff works like a charm! It isn’t greasy and it smells great as well! In addition, you’ll find Ruby’s Lube to be all natural, non-irritating and can be used anywhere you desire…. from your cycling chamois- to your dry elbows- to the spot on your big toe, that your favorite running shoes are rubbing raw.

If you haven’t had the opportunity to try it, give em’ a shout and they’ll send you a sample. You’ll be glad you did!



Enjoy the beautiful weather! It’s gettin’ hot FAST!

See y’all soon!!

Breaking Down PhD Nutrition


There are so many wonderful benefits of being a member of Big Sexy Racing.

One of which, is learning about products I haven’t had the pleasure of being exposed to until now.

PhD Nutrition is a prime example. As a team sponsor, I have the opportunity to incorporate these new (to me) products into my daily training and experiment with something I would never have thought to try.

PhD Nutrition is one of the fastest growing nutrition brands in the UK and they’re finally getting some well deserved exposure over here in the US. This innovative line of products not only tastes great, but delivers serious results.

However, with it being relatively new and unfamiliar (again, to me!) there has been somewhat of a learning curve. Lucky for us, one of my fellow “sexies” created this helpful and informative educational video to highlight a few of our favorite PhD products and how to use them.

Unchartered Territory


Over the past year, I’ve started dabbling in new things….namely race directing.

So far we’ve had relatively small events, but this year we decided to go BIG!

Last Saturday, I was the race director for the 2015 Frosted Fanny Duathlon and Road Race with my partner Race By The Bay. It was a beautiful day here in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi and ended up being the perfect opportunity for the sold out crowd to test their winter fitness…. under “not-so winter like” conditions.

This was the first event (of four) in the 2015 Quad Burners Duathlon and Road Race Series. Next up….The Lucky Leprechaun on March 7th, 2015.

If there was ever ANY doubt, it is FAR more exhausting to direct a race as opposed to participating in one. But the reward is second to none!

The world of BIG SEXY RACING


As 2014 drew to a close, I got word that I had been accepted as a member of the 2015 Big Sexy Racing Elite Squad.


This is a group of fantastic people, not to mention athletes, from all around the world, led by pro-triathlete Chris McDonald and his wife Erika Race (amazing folks).

This a fabulous opportunity to try out new products and represent the vendors accordingly; in addition to pushing myself to a higher level, as this something the BSR group does very well on a daily basis! So far, it’s been a lot of fun. The 2015 season is sure to be an interesting one, hanging out and playing with these characters all year!!

Keep an eye out for all the latest and greatest product reviews from some terrific sponsors and check out BSRX3. This is an arm of Big Sexy Racing for anyone looking for training guidance, access to other athletes, race plans, coaches, and/or simply wants to be part of an amazing team.

See ya’ soon!




2014 ended rather abruptly around here and so I’m going to put a bit of closure on that chapter before moving on to the next one.

Last year was a tough one. Good races and bad.

It was a battle, plain and simple.

Me vs Myself.

I had to face some harsh realities about my mental fortitude during difficult training sessions and how I race. It’s not all that fun to look deep within yourself and admit that while you may… “talk the talk, you’re not always… “walking the walk”!

I had to figure out a way to stop coddling myself like a mother would her child. I had to learn how to no longer accept the negotiations, that went on inside my head, as if I were writing a UN peace treaty. I had to truly embrace the challenge of a difficult training day and carry that with me to racing.

Was I successful? We should ask my coach, but I’ll go ahead and give my thoughts…

I made great strides. I’m closer now than ever before, but it’s constant work. Some days are easier than others.

My last race of 2014 was River Roux 70.3 in the worst conditions I’d ever faced. Conditions I don’t think I could’ve imagined and I’ve got a pretty wild creative streak in me.

Nine months of hard physical and mental training got me to the finish line that day.

And when I got there, I cried. Hell, I started crying when I SAW the finish line.

And just so you know, I’m not a crier. I didn’t cry at my wedding, when my son was born, when I finished my first Ironman….I’m very practical and pragmatic. I typically don’t get that emotionally “spent”.

But on that afternoon I was fried. Sure I was tired physically, but mentally; it was the hardest thing I’d ever done.

Every now and then though, we get rewarded for our efforts.

My time was far from record-setting, but that was the nature of the day. Part of my battle was being able to “let go” of what my computers were telling me, keep the frustration at bay, and trust my training. All of it.


I earned 1st place (40-44 women) at River Roux. I wanted more, but on that day…for the 1st time ever…I can honestly look at myself and say that I left everything out on that course.

I’ll carry this with me and continue to build upon the foundation that was laid, creating what I feel will be a remarkable 2015 season.

2015: A Year In Pictures




And blogging can become a real pain in the ass.

So when things don’t work, it’s time to try something new!

Enter 2015: A year in pictures. Short posts, less verbal vomit, and more visual stimulation. And a few other changes here and there as well.

Let’s see how it goes.

Grab some “take-out” if you need it….
