Modern Athlete magazine feature - March 2018

Posted by Rogeema Kenny on Saturday, May 19, 2018, In : Triathlon 
While I haven't written a post-race report of my Ironman 70.3 race day experience yet (and I haven't forgotten about it), I was featured in the Modern Athlete March 2018 issue. Modern Athlete is the biggest running and multi-sport publication in the country, so I am truly humbled to have had the opportunity to share my story in the magazine. 

You can read the article online HERE, or download the pdf version of the article by clicking on the image below.

Happy Birthday Mozilla - A tribute

Posted by Rogeema Kenny on Friday, March 30, 2018, In : Professional 

31 March 2018 marks the day... Happy 20th birthday Mozilla.

The reason I love Mozilla is not only because:
  • Their San Francisco offices made me (and others) feel more at home than anywhere else in Silicon Valley 
  • The programs we had at their offices were always fantastic and impactful 
  • There was always a supply of amazing free snacks from their snack counter (basically a tuck shop where you don’t pay, so can’t be called a shop really) 
  • The views of the Oakland bridge across the bay from the ba...

What would you do if you weren't afraid?

Posted by Rogeema Kenny on Friday, October 23, 2015, In : Inspiration 

I'd like to leave you with this thought today...


Now think of what it is that makes you afraid.
What is the worst that can happen if that fear comes true?
How bad is that reality really?
Is it worth the emotional energy that you invest into that fear?

And then I ask you again:

My eyes burned...

Posted by Rogeema Kenny on Monday, February 2, 2015, In : Inspiration 

I'm starting this post off with a disclaimer that what follows is not an original post of mine, but rather something that I received in an email newsletter a few days ago. It is from someone who is always a source of great inspiration to me, Robin Sharma. These words are too beautiful not to share, not only because of what it means to me, but also because so much of it really is what I want to say to you from me too. So I hope you like it. 


My eyes burn as I watch you overcome your trial...

RISE & SHINE - Welcome to the Grind

Posted by Rogeema Kenny on Saturday, September 20, 2014, In : Inspiration 

You’re a sportsperson. 

You test and defy the limits of the human body, no matter what your level…
Always pushing harder, going further, lifting higher...
You love to feel the strength in your muscles as they work to carry you through from the start to that finish line...

But to push hard, go long, and be strong takes hours, days, months, and years of defying alarm clocks and snooze buttons, going out in the cold, going out in the dark… to train, to race. 

No man or woman can do that withou...

IT'S MY BIRTHDAY!! (so here's a gift for you)

Posted by Rogeema Kenny on Tuesday, October 15, 2013, In : Inspiration 

It's the 16th of October. And that means it's my birthday today. Happy birthday to me!
To celebrate, I want to give you some very special gifts. These have helped me, and I hope that in some small way it can help you or a loved one as well. 

Because sometimes one needs reminders that...
You are strong, believe it
You have to keep going, despite the odds
You don't have to smile all the time, it's ok to cry
The comfort zone is no place to exist in
A rich, full life is the only way to live
You need to o...

I Am Runner...

Posted by Rogeema on Sunday, April 11, 2010, In : Running 

ROAD RUNNING... it is my newfound passion and source of inspiration... and a true testament to the amazing machine that is the human body!

Being a bit of a fitness junkie, I have always had a very intense love of gym and sport in general. But the one piece of equipment that was never my friend was the treadmill. I hated running. The treadmill was something I used when I needed to warm up and didn't feel like using any of the other cardio equipment, and I never stayed on it longer than 5 minute...

What If Suddenly... ?

Posted by Rogeema on Wednesday, December 2, 2009, In : Inspiration 

What if, what if suddenly,

in a flash of fire and light, you got it!

And among other things, you suddenly understood,
without a doubt, the creative power of your word.

Do you think you'd ever again utter, "it's hard", "it's not working",
"something's wrong with me", or "I don't know"?

Nope, you wouldn't, not ever again.
