Races: Sporting Life 10K


Favourite Workout: my first Time Trial with the Newmarket Eagles

Most Hardcore Workout: my second Time Trial with the Newmarket Eagles – this time on the hybrid bike!

Book,TV Show, Movie and/or Song of the Month: currently enjoying ‘You Are an Ironman’ thanks to IRONMAN CTER

Shame-Inducing Guilty Pleasure: puppy snuggles! (but I am not ashamed)


Indulgence of the Month: my new toy!


Obsession of the Month: Open Water Swimming! Now that we’ve gotten into the lake, I don’t want anything to do with the pool.


Food and/or Drink of the Month: Wild Vines – the perfect light, refreshing drink for spring/summer

weekend-workout-008-300x225Current Wish-List: good weather for my open water swim event this Sunday. It’s not looking good at the moment, but hopefully that will change. Unfortunately it’s a long drive (2h+) so we can’t just show up and hope for the best.


Current Need: More hours in the day! I can’t keep up this week. Puppy, work, training… nothing else is getting done. Laundry? Nope. Groceries? Nope. House work? Ha! NEED MORE TIME.

Triumph of the Month: Raising $33,348 for Camp Ooch with Nolan’s Dream Chasers!


#FAIL of the Month: After never having a flat tire before, I ended up with two (on two different bikes, mind you!) in the same week. Not cool!


Current Excitement: Life is filled with all of the excitement that a new puppy brings! It’s amazing to see him learning and growing each day and of course we love him more with every minute.


Current Goal: a strong 2K open water swim to build confidence for my upcoming half-iron tri

  1. Another great month. Let me know when you figure out how to create a day with more hours. So many things I’d like to do as well!

  2. I hope the weather cooperates for you!! Seems like suddenly we went from a heat wave to now cooler temps. Awesome month of May!

  3. i adore your dog!!!! he is cute and I would totally be obsessed with him too!

    WILD VINES…i used to drink that all the time. I have not had it in so long. what a perfect summer drink

    and omg, u r totally kicking butt with your workouts! great job marlene

  4. That is one badass bike. The Trek Concept is a solid ride and one you will enjoy for years (then again I said that about El Diablo and I want a new bike for next year…..haha!)

    Glad you are enjoying the book and thank you for the adjective. Much appreciated.

    Miles is a lucky dog to have you as a Mom.
