Well, I don’t know what to say…been slacking on the ol’ blog lately. I’ve been stuck in what I call the ‘winter doldrums’. If you’ve never been there, lucky you, it involves limited exposure to sunlight, wearing the ugliest, warmest boots you can find and jackets that aren’t flattering on any body. In December I wore long thermal long-underwear for 3 weeks straight…day & night. The motivation can get pretty low at  this time of year…but then I remember that I choose to live here and actually love winter sports (just not when it’s -30!). So what have I been doing the last few months??  I took a good long break from all things triathlon (except coaching my fav Kronos athletes!) and bundled up and headed outside whenever I could tolerate it. It was a good mental and physical break.  I finally felt ready to jump back into it when I acquired a plague which decided to stick around for all of January.  So after an even later start than I’d hoped, I’m finally back up and running (literally and figuratively!). …
