So, I completed the Seafair Sprint Triathlon for the second time. It has been five years since I completed this race as my first triathlon following a weight loss contest in 2005. I was excited to get to race in this event again because I knew that the last 5 years of training have helped…

Yoga for Triathletes (or anybody for that matter)

OK…so no matter how much I love P90X and Tony Horton’s fitness model, my ultimate fitness goals still come back to triathlons.
