My IRONMAN Nutrition Recap

Earlier this month I completed my third Ironman in Mont-Tremblant, Quebec, Canada. YAY!

Good Sleep Starts Now

We all know that it’s important to strive for 7-10 hours of sleep every night. But what if you are getting this many hours and you still wake up feeling tired, groggy, and sore?  What if the hours you are getting aren’t doing the job. How disappointing is that? You are diligent about getting to […]
