About

I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

Hi. I’m Moriah, and I’m really happy you found my blog.

 I live in my workout clothes 98.7% of the time, I eat 5-6 big meals a day, I run, I love cycling, I have a crazy dog, I love slurping sipping things through straws, I organize things like crazy, and I drink too much coffee.

I also listen to what my brothers affectionately refer to as “old people music.” I do this all the time, but especially when I do yoga.

 I don’t like cats, I don’t run long distances well, I don’t like bananas, I can’t do cartwheels, and I’m not very graceful (in other words, I trip over my feet and bang into countertops a lot…)

Did I mention I love cycling?

So what’s in a name?

The blog is called Tri-or-bust because that’s been my phrase for the past few years. I’ve been to several triathlons and with every race that I’ve been to I’ve only loved them more. I watched my dad finish an Ironman a few years back and since then finishing one myself has been at the top of my to do list.

 I did a small tri a few years ago and then took a long hiatus to work on some health issues related to celiac disease. With the big break that I took, Tri-or-bust was still my phrase because I knew I wasn’t done working towards an Ironman. My break was just a part of the process and without taking time to slow down, I wouldn’t be healthy enough to still be training today.  I just recently finished my first sprint triathlon and I’m hoping to build up to longer races from here!

Above all, I really want to work somewhere in the Exercise Science field – maybe Personal Training or Nutrition, or maybe even Physical Therapy. I’m working towards those goals, but I don’t want to have to wait until I’ve got my doctorate to start helping people live balanced and healthy lives. I know what it’s like to be unhealthy and I know what a huge setback it can be. I wouldn’t wish that on anyone. So, in a nutshell, Tri-or-bust is a blog that I have created to document working towards my goals and to help others (whether your goal is race-or-bust or just be healthy-or-bust) work towards theirs.

 My main reason for living is to glorify my God and Savior, and I hope that throughout these blog posts you can see him in my life!
