I'm Karin, a 30-something wife, mother of two, and nurse, living in coastal Florida.  Triathlon is my hobby but also my passion and I am starting this blog to give myself a place to ramble on about the sport that I love!  

I started running in 2010 with a main focus on getting healthier and losing the weight I'd gained after having my kids.  My first 5k led to my first half marathon, and I was hooked on endurance sports!  My husband Chris also started running, and he and I now train for and race the same running races and triathlons together.  Our 2017 triathlon season was pretty packed with local sprint triathlons, our first Olympic distance tri, and our first Ironman 70.3.  I love to write and talk triathlon, so I hope you enjoy my future race reports, gear reviews, beginner tips, and more!  When we aren't training or working, our favorite place to relax is on one of Florida's gorgeous sandy beaches, so I look forward to sharing some of my favorite little slices of paradise here and there as well!
