“Back to School” Resolutions: 2017 Edition


You guys know I’m a huge fan of resolutions. I make them a couple times a year: New Years, birthdays occasionally, and always, always, always, for Back to School. My fondest summer memories involve floating in the ocean at the beach with my sister …



Athletic Bookworm Bookclub: The Brave Athlete


Huge thanks to everyone who expressed interest in being part of this first Athletic Bookworm Bookclub. The first book we’re going to tackle is The Brave Athlete, which was the clear winner out of the three options I put out to the group. I’m excited …



Outdoor Edit // Are You Ready for the New Year?


It’s only a couple days until Christmas, but since we’re in The Netherlands waiting for the Zolder World Cup, it’s feeling a little anti-climactic. Still, I’m trying to make sure that we take time out to wander the downtown, since it’s pretty classically Euro-Christmas-y …

Outdoor Edit // How Ewe Doing?


How ewe doing? Sorry, guys—sheep puns never get old. I’ve been in The Netherlands supporting a few races in the past couple weeks and the trip is almost done. While a lot of the younger racers go a little stir-crazy in the dorm-style housing …



Outdoor Edit // All That Glitters


Back in The Netherlands for the last week, which has been really fun and a great chance for me to reset on some work stuff, get back to training, and eat/drink some delicious but also some amazingly healthy food. We’re only here another few …




Outdoor Edit // Dropping Temps, Riding Bikes


Midwest tour has begun! Drove down to Cleveland yesterday to do a talk, now I’m in Cincinnati for Pan-Ams, then Peter and I are testing out our now-renovated Ford Transit Connect by camping for the week (the weather is looking gorgeous!) between there and …
