RWS Features #18


Good morning! Today Bobby and I are volunteering at a Triathlon. It is the same one that we spectated at last year. You can see the recap here. I will be back with a full report next week.

Don’t forget to enter my giveaway at the bottom of yesterday’s post. The zero water pitcher is really awesome, we fill ours up several times a day!


It’s time for another RWS Features! Today I want you to meet Heidi from You can also find her on Twitter @BananaBuzzbomb. Heidi is so funny and so sweet, I love her honest genuine posts, be sure to add her to your reader!



1.) How/Why did you start blogging?

Initially I started blogging in 2006 as a way to keep family members, like my grandma and grandpa from out-of-state, up-to-date on what we were doing. It was just another form of communication.  As time went on I began to document my running journey/challenges.  Now I also see it as my own personal outlet.  It holds me accountable and is a place I can share my journey with those that are interested.

2.) Sum up your blog in a couple sentences.

BananaBuzzbomb is about a me, a 28 year old vegan triathlete, learning about myself and about life.  Specifically, I’m learning to simplify, to take care of my body to the best of my ability, and to detoxify my surroundings.  I’m learning to focus on the journey and not the destination.

3.) What do you wish to accomplish/achieve by blogging?

I like that I can easily have a friendly reminder of how far I’ve come just by simply clicking back into my archives.  I also love that people from the blogging community that = become my friends.  I have gained more knowledge, insight, and support than I ever dreamed possible. It is also my hope that maybe someone, even if only one person, may learn something through my through my challenges and successes.

4.)What is your biggest healthy living accomplishment?

My biggest accomplishment or challenge I’ve overcome would be running.  I couldn’t run if my life depended on it.  Now I can say I’ve finished many 5Ks, a Half Marathon, and a Sprint Triathlon.  I’m currently training for my next Half Marathon and my first Half Ironman Distance REV3 Triathlon.

Thanks so much Heidi!

  1. Heidi and her blog are so awesome! Love this post 🙂

  2. Thank you Heather!

    As for volunteering at a race…yes! That’s how I got hooked on Rev3. Such an awesome experience. Have a great day today! =)

  3. Great interview with Heidi. She’s great!

  4. Informative and concise – way to go!

  5. Actually I haven’t volunteered for a race. Perhaps I should make that a goal for 2012 – I’d like to experience racing from the other side of the coin. Great idea!

  6. Wow Heidi–you’ve been blogging for six years! That’s impressive. And I love hearing about how someone so young is focused on what’s important in life (I certainly wasn’t there yet at your age!). Thanks for featuring her!

    And yes, I’ve volunteered at races–love it! Best seat in the house.

  7. Oh I love her! I didn’t realize she had started in 2006, that is really impressive.

  8. Heidi is one popular gal this week! GET IT GIRL!! 😉

  9. Nice post – I enjoyed reading this one and catching up on your precious posts too! Looking forward to following your blog – and getting me one of those uber cute running skirts!

  10. Um… Heidi, that’s 3 sentences. 😉 j/k.

    That is so cool with the running accomplishments. You’ll do great in the 1/2 Ironman distance.

  11. When selecting memorabilia or general purpose utility items as gifts, avoid items such
    as perfume and religious or superstitious items. If you are giving wine or a wine gift basket, it is better to
    ask permission or get details regarding whether the person actually drinks (or might drink too much and not want temptation).
    Some of them is included with a pen while
    a few others is given a small stapler on it.
