It's been a month since my last post, and I have to say a lot has happened! I've been lucky enough to become the co-leader for the Nebraska/South Dakota Oiselle Volée! I'm really excited about the ideas we have for team meet-ups and more! I started my first official training cycle of 2017. It feels … Continue reading Time Flies!
A few weeks ago, I saw people posting that Nuun had opened up their application for 2017 ambassadors. I've been using Nuun for years now. My stomach never settled well with traditional sports drinks, and while I used Hammer Heed for a while, it was a little too high maintenance for my taste.

I did a fair amount of meal planning and prep, too. I will say that Whole30 takes it to a whole new level. … Continue reading #Whole30 Week 1 In the Books
2015 was a crazy, wonderful, hectic, and busy year.
