The 2015 Tri-2-Beat Cancer Triathlon (Sprint)

Wooooo!!!!! That is where I’ll start. This weekend was insanity.  I ordered a new tri kit from Coeur Sports which arrived on Thursday before the race.  Talk about cutting it close. THEN, (Major TMI Warning) the ::ahem:: lady ::ahem:: came to visit me for the first time since I had HM (7 months ago).  Seriously.  The timing.  And the severity.  And the implications.  And the timing.  AND THE TIMING.

We really lucked out! On Friday, Tristan, me, two cousins and their…


Litchfield Beach Update

This week is family beach week at Litchfield Beach in South Carolina. It’s a bit south of Myrtle Beach but north of Hilton Head. It’s not so touristy which is really nice, so the beaches are really clean and not crowded. Mom, dad, Tristan, and I packed up the Commander and made our way down on Sunday the 2nd. Traffic wasn’t too bad, so we made it in about 8…
