It's crazy and not so crazy to think that I am at 33 weeks. Like people say with kids, the time goes by both fast and slow. Some days are easier than others. In fact there are many days where I wake up and forget that I am pregnant, until I look in the mirror, … Continue reading 33 weeks: so close or still so far?
Wow. I can't believe we are already almost done with spring and into summer. Even more so, I am floored that I am into my third trimester. Granted April and the beginning of May was very hectic for us. Between putting on an Expedition Race, running my second Mama's Retreat, filming our next Acro Mastermind, … Continue reading Some thoughts on exercising while Pregnant and some of my favorite gear!
So far this pregnancy has flown by. The first couple weeks of my pregnancy saw me in awe of it all. How it all began was like something out of a story book. And now many weeks later, I am already half way through it all. This realization actually hit me hard this last … Continue reading Transitions and settling in
I have taken up a new sport here in NZ. And while I know you are "not supposed" to do anything new when pregnant, I use the term "taking up" very loosely. I have started learning how to open water swim. At first it started with just a simple goal: be able to swim … Continue reading Taking up a New Sport

As we weaved up and down little valleys and across turbal, he was following us and saying: "Mama, this … Continue reading Rainbows with messages
It’s hard to believe it’s already been almost two weeks since we crossed the finish line of the Patagonian Expedition Race in first place. Ever since we did the race back in 2010, it has been an event and place that has shaped my soul, my relationships and my connection to nature. In 2010, Jason … Continue reading Testing my limits and going past them in the Patagonian Expedition Race
Mama guilt is a real thing. I wonder if any mother gets away from it. If I am not careful it can grip me so hard it stops me in my tracks and makes it difficult to breath. It is through meditation and inviting it in to my heart space, that I have been able to … Continue reading Mama Guilt
As the wheels drop down from the airplane and we begin our descent into Bend, I look over at Jason and Max looking out the window. They are waving to Spirit and telling him that we are home. Max says "home, home, home" over and over it again and if you didn't know his … Continue reading Swarm of Lady bugs
"2 minutes" The announcer calls over the intercom. I kiss my vial of Spirit B and put him safely in my pack, take a swig of water and head down to the start line of the Telluride 100 mtn bike race. My nervous jitters are finally starting to fade the closer I get to start … Continue reading Telluride 100: Trusting the Process
