I am a 44 years young, full-time working Wife, Mom, sometime student, gastric bypass post-op and unlikely triathlete aspiring to one day becoming an Ironman. Like everyone, I face challenges balancing training and family life, but also have some medical challenges including Hypothyroidism and Hyperprolactinemia, which make for some extra "fun" but are never an excuse. I truly believe we only regret the things we DIDN'T do 20 years ago. So this blog is about me getting busy doing what I don't want to regret not having done! "Go Mommy go!" isn't just what I hear from the sidelines on race day... for me it's my daily life mantra!
