Back in Chapel Hill!

Afternoon, friends! I’m back in Chapel Hill (drove back from D.C. on Friday night after our school sessions ended) and it’s so nice to be home with Matt.

I whipped up some tuna sandwiches for us (using this recipe for tuna salad but with Greek yogurt instead of Continue Reading …

Going Car Free for the Day

Matt and I took our bikes out to play on Sunday! Being out of town a bunch on weekends lately meant that our bikes have been a little neglected, so when Matt suggested we take them out for a spin on Sunday I was more than happy to oblige!

Buckner Mission Man Sprint Triathlon Recap!

Yesterday was me and Matt’s very first triathlon! It was really cool to actually do something that I’ve read/heard so much about.

Bike + Run: Our First Triathlon Brick Workout!

Hello and happy Sunday, friends! Matt and I have had a great weekend here in Chapel Hill. Yesterday, we did our first “brick” workout for triathlon training!
