Who Am I?

I started practicing meditation last year and was intrigued when I learned some soul questions: Who am I? What do I want? How can I help?  How can I serve?  What is my dharma?

Lifestyle

I get asked from time to time how I came to be a vegan endurance athlete and reflected on this subject during my run this morning  so I thought I would share my journey with you. I know other triathletes that grew up swimming and running so it was a natural path for them to … Continue reading

Recap

Over the past week I have been looking through my 2012 Facebook timeline.  I used to scrapbook and love looking back at memories so am thankful for the online social media outlets that help me recollect what has happened over the past year.  My husband and I had a goal this year to try and … Continue reading

Tonight I went to try out the Deep … Continue reading

Actions

After a stressful and sad Friday morning I was so thankful for friends and weekend activities to fill me up with joy to heal the sadness I felt after finding Brody.  I hope all of you were able to recharge and fill yourself with joy over the weekend! Calls, texts and emails from friends and … Continue reading

Streaks

I am on a couple of streaks. The first streak was just by chance, not a focused effort and the second streak was planned. I have incorporated physical activity into my daily routine for 52 days running. When you love to stay active and you aren’t tied to a desk job (or any job:)) there … Continue reading

Release

In times of stress I am so thankful to have tools in place to help me release the feelings I have building in me. When I need to decompress or let go I can turn to meditation or yoga and bliss out.  Swimming also can be a meditation activity for me and is usually a … Continue reading
