At the beginning of every year, I try to set both personal and professional goals for myself. One of my 2015 goals was to run a long distance race and this past May, I completed my first half marathon where I happily finished within 30 seconds of my goal time. While this was a wonderful accomplishment, I have to admit that prior to my decision to sign up for the race, I could barely run an entire mile without fatigue and ultimately, slowing to walk. When I decided to run the 13.1 mile distance, I knew I would need a solid training plan, a coach who could help me work through the process and most important, buy-in and support from not only myself but also my family members.

There’s something extremely satisfying about a well-planned, properly resourced fishing trip. When you’ve found the perfect spot, your tackle box is well-stocked and the beer is cold, it’s as if the planets have aligned and you just know that the next few hours are going to be blissful.
When asked to think about sustainable energy within a business environment, I’m sure that integrated databases, Business Intelligence dashboards, web design and cloud computing are not the first thoughts that come to mind. Instead you are probably picturing recycle bins, wind turbines and solar panels.
Some people like cars, some have an affinity for sport, while others can discuss the sheen of their pet’s coat for hours on end. We all have our own weaknesses … or strengths depending on where you stand on dog fur. My passion is food. Sometimes healthy, occasionally cholesterol-inducing, butter soaked sheer indulgence.
The Tour de France is underway and I, for one, could not be happier. While some women may watch it for the men in tight pants, I watch primarily for the race’s backdrop. The view from the top reveals spectacular scenery and the hidden gems that riders traverse. I am so enthralled with these places that following the tour is on my bucket list.
