I am excited to announce that I started a podcast to share my experiences. I will be covering running and triathlon training, grief, anxiety, humor
I really enjoyed interviewing Catra Corbett recently about her ultradistance experience. She really has quite the story from being a meth addict to getting clean
When you face a major challenge, be grateful for it. Many people will see something difficult as a bad thing. If something goes wrong, it’s a reason to complain, it’s a time of self-pity. That won’t get you anywhere. Instead, learn to be grateful for the challenge — it’s an opportunity to grow, to learn, to get better at something. When asked why I am not envious of the other runners here. Well…envy prompts one to feel inadequate, incomplete, impotent and missing out and I am none of that! While some things might be out of our control, much of what happens is based on our thoughts, emotions and behaviors, and are largely a conditional response to our focus. Gratitude is a way for people to appreciate what they have instead of always reaching for something new in the hopes it will make them happier, or thinking they can’t feel satisfied until every physical and material need is met. Gratitude helps people refocus on what they have instead of what they lack. I lack nothing! I am whole.

I hired Coach Lora five months ago to help me train for a triathlon. She not only introduced me to new kinds of workouts but challenged me beyond what I had considered myself able to do. She has been encouraging and excited about my progress, willing to answer questions and has shared insights and training tips to help me do my best. She adapted my training to include other activities I enjoy such as hiking, which helped me complete the Rim to River hike in the Grand Canyon recently, and I have discovered that I can do much more than I ever thought I could! Her coaching has been of great value to me and I have become not only more physically fit but mentally tough and confident in myself and my abilities. I am going into my triathlon next week prepared to give it my best and have fun doing it! I would recommend her coaching or consultations to anyone who seeks a professional perspective on goals, training, racing or personal motivation. Thanks, Coach Lora!
I am so happy to be a long-time Ogden Marathon Ambassador. Here’s an interview they did for the 2021 Virtual Experience. Cheers to 20 years! Enjoy.
