Biking in Rhode Island (RunKarlaRun.com)

It’s that time of year: sprint triathlon training. Ever since I got bit by the multi-sport bug in 2011, my summers have been a mélange of cross-training activities. This year is no different: swimming and biking and running, oh my!

What was that something? A pair of personal bests for both me and my husband, Phil. After a tough Runner’s…

Hiking through Italy's Cinque TerreAfter spending three nights on this rugged section of the Italian Riviera three hours south of Milan, I understand Cinque…
