Welcome to my latest creation!

Hellooooo! It's a brand new blog! Well after 4 years on teamTBB and over 300 posts on my teamTBB blog, there are some big changes in my life as I transition from a full-time pro athlete and head back to work in prosthetics and orthotics. I'll still be training and racing as a teamTBB online-coached athlete, guided by the very awesome Rebecca Preston, but I wanted to prepare my blog for life post-TBB. There are certain limitations with having the blog hosted on a different website with its own admin, and I've been wanting to integrate my old official website with its own blog.

the good times at training camp must come to an end.
You know what I also miss? The ability for readers to comment on blog posts. I blogged on Livejournal for 5 years or so and really enjoyed the community aspect of reading and commenting on each others' blogs. Not everyone wants to "leave a comment in the forum," I'm very well aware. The admin controls on the team blogs also prevent me from doing super quick and easy blogging from my smartphone too (I tried installing Android blogging apps and it just didn't work). So maybe now you'll get some fun random updates more often.

As for being "uncensored and uncut..." I have been known to accidentally offend people. Sadly in recent times, I've toned myself down or don't blog at all for some stretches. There were also some readers who didn't appreciate my non-triathlon blogs (hey nobody is forcing you to read this!) but I've never been that pro triathlete who only ever blogs about triathlon. There is so much more to my life than that and what is wrong with blogging about random things and such? So here's to taking back the freedom to blog about whatever I want, whenever I want, and as often as I want!

I haven't figured out what to do with the 300+ TBB posts yet--considered merging the archives with this blog, but I am liking the idea of starting new and fresh. I'll probably throw the archives into its own blog when the time comes to shut it down. In the meantime, welcome to my shenanigans! Bookmark me or throw this into your blog reader. :D
