Thank you for stopping by my blog. sing.fly.love. is the online home for all things that I love, create, learn from and want to share. I live and work in Nashville writing songs and running a company called The Write Love, LLC. (We write beautiful tunes for beautiful brides.) If you’re a fan of television you may have heard my songs featured in shows on Lifetime, ABC and MTV. I adore my beagles and cherish living in a city that is growing and changing and thriving everyday. My main goal in life is to tell stories that touch people (appropriately, mind you) Β in some way, whether that’s through the music I get to make in Nashville, the food I make for family and friends, the photos I take or through sharing all of my good/bad/ugly/ridiculous/embarrassing life experiences. I hope you enjoy and come back often!

  1. Thanks for checking out my blog. I’ve browsed your posts and have enjoyed what I’ve seen. Looks like you are well on your way to completing your first triathlon. Kudos and good luck!

  2. Good for you on this challenge! I’m also doing a triathlon in October – a half ironman here in Australia. It’s been 8 years since I’ve done any tris. So here’s to both of us achieving our goals πŸ™‚

    • Thank you! It’s my first one so I’m learning all kinds of things about the sport and myself. Where in Australia is your race? I would love to hear more about it. πŸ™‚

  3. Good for you! I think its great that you’re jumping into it and willing to share the journey with us. Best of luck, and I’m excited to hear about your success!

  4. You and I are on a similar journey … I’m just a little (OK a LOT) older! After a year of saying NO WAY to Crossfit, I finally decided to face my fears and give it a go. I’m a non-athlete so this is big news in my world.

    Good for YOU! Your journey will inspire others!

  5. Thanks for checking out my blog …. and for having and sharing such an awesome attitude about giving it all a try and not giving up!

  6. Thanks for stopping by my post Robin. You go girl! I’m still holding out to see if I’m ready to make the commitment to a 1/2 marathon in October. I’ve got to find something soon since I did my first race last week and I don’t have a next one yet!

    • The ‘tri’ in the domain name actually refers to triathlon. I started the blog to document training for my first triathlon and all of the crazy things that happen while doing it!

      • Oh, then you are just lucky to have found the perfect domain. You know it’s so hard to find a good domain these days!

  7. Look out October – new athlete on the track! You have a great attitude and obviously some great support. Overcoming fears is an awesome part of life. As an old fella I’ve had to do that a lot throughout my life.
    I’ll be waiting to see photos of you crossing that finishline!

    • Thank you SO much for the encouragement! I hope to see pictures of me crossing the finish line, too. I hope to still be overcoming fears and learning things about myself when I’m 80. If I make it that far. πŸ™‚

  8. Awesome! I did my first tri last year. It was a blast! Then I got the itch for ultra marathons and I was HOOKED! Having a blog and using social media is definitely a great way to hold yourself accountable. You should check out the Runkeeper site as well. I think you’d enjoy it. If you do, shoot me a friend request, I know how well a little motivation from others goes a long way! Good luck in your training! I’ll be sure to check in and see how it’s going! πŸ™‚

  9. I wrote a little bit about ultras in one of my posts… Really anything longer than a marathon. Runkeeper works excellent for tracking all your workouts. I use it in conjunction with my garmin. The ability for others to “watch my workout” in real time is a huge motivator for me.

    Your already have done some amazing things, keep at it!

  10. Hi. Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog today and click on the “Like” button to my most recent post. Also, thanks for deciding to follow my blog; I am now following yours too. Your blog is encouraging and inspiring and I hope you have a positive effect on all those who read it. Keep up the good work you’re doing here. I hope to hear from you again soon. Cheers!

  11. Thanks for giving me a like on my blog. I’ve been back-reading yours and you have a gift for writing. It has been an enjoyable read. Keep up the good work, you almost make me want to get into tri… nah, not yet. πŸ™‚ I’ll stick with the running for now.

    • Thank you so much! I love to write, so it means a lot to hear that someone is enjoying it. As far as running goes, it’s my least favorite of the swim/bike/run combo. I actually think I may seriously dislike running. πŸ™‚

      • You know, the more I read your blog, the more I am shocked we have never met before. I’m only into March’s posts (buys afternoon at work), but I lived on the coast for years. I grew up in New Orleans, so your comments about the Saints hit home. πŸ™‚

        As far as running, I enjoy plugging in the headphones and forgetting everything for a while. But I’m like you also in that it only lasts for 5-10 seconds before I am chasing some random thoughts about different things. (I loved your comments about trying meditation. I can so relate to that!)

      • Thank you so much for reading! I grew up on the coast, but haven’t lived there for quite some time. I go back a lot, though, because my family is still there. Boy, have the Saints really done it this time, huh?

      • (Sorry, work delayed my reply.) πŸ™‚

        The biggest problem with the Saints, in my opinion, is that they were singled out. I don’t and won’t defend what they did, but until the league (and Goodell) started throwing around suspensions (year and permanent) there were dozens of other players on other teams saying things like, “Sure they have a bounty program, everyone does.” The Saints were just the unlucky ones to get used to “teach everyone a lesson”.

        I don’t have a problem with the penalty if the league applies it evenly to all teams. And I don’t have a problem with a penalty being applied, the behavior needed to be stopped. It is just very one sided and biased right now.

  12. Thanks so much for dropping by my page. Your goals are quite admirable, and I’ve been doing something similar with my life over the past year of two. Looking forward to following your progress!

    Let me know if I can give you any sort of guidance, as I would be humbled by any help I can offer. Hopefully you can find something useful on my page. Take care πŸ™‚

      • I know that feeling. I just started up my blog about a week ago, so I’m scrambling to fill in a lot of the gaps. I don’t have content on any of my side pages yet, but I’ll get those done as I can. I plan on putting up a lot of guides that are more technical and instructive (as opposed to just blogs on whatever I’m thinking). Happy to help however I can πŸ™‚

      • BTW, I’m also thinking about posting my own fitness progress as time goes by. Getting back into the groove I was once in. Both with workouts and progress pics… Think it’s a good idea?

      • I think it’s whatever you’re comfortable sharing on your blog. I tend to think that people are inspired by others who are going through a similar process, whatever it may be.

  13. Good Luck Robin! The outpouring of community support above is the exact reason I started racing tri’s two years ago and continue to enjoy life as a triathlete. I’m sure with a bit of training you’ll do great and when you cross that finish line the natural high you’ll experience will be incredible!

    • Thank you so much. Yes, people are so supportive. It’s wonderful. That’s the whole reason that I started writing the blog. I knew that I would need the motivation!

  14. Thanks for liking my post. I really like your site. It’s entertaining and honest! My first tris were last year and, trust me, you will become addicted. They are so much fun!

    • Thank you! Yes, I loved the pictures and that the kids were creating practice “waves” for you with all of their activity. Precious. πŸ™‚ I’m hoping that I love the triathlon!

  15. We have many things in commun: wanting to achieve a fitness competition, loving dogs ( i have 3 rescues that i adore) etc.:-)
    Very beautiful blog !!!!

  16. Just wanted to say thanks for stopping by my food blog and liking my blow out meal. There are lots of great recipes to try as well if you’re interested. Please check them out some time.

  17. Thanks for reading my blog and liking it!! Great job and training for a triatholon. I’m going for the 1/2 marathon, to possibly the marathon and then we will see. πŸ™‚

  18. Thank you for stopping by my blog I appreciate it. I have been enjoying catching up on your story here. It was the type that I wanted to start at the beginning to see what you went through. Hopefully, I will be caught up by the time you do your Triathlon.

    • Oh, wow! Thank you so much for reading. Some of the blog is about the triathlon training and some is about life. They go hand in hand I think. πŸ™‚ I’m gonna go back and look at more of your blog as well. Have a wonderful day. πŸ™‚

  20. I just found your blog and I think it’s great you are conquering your fears by facing them head on. It’s the only way, and you won’t regret it. I wish you the best in your upcoming triathlon!

  21. Hey,
    You know your song “southern gentleman”? I’ve ward it in the radio by some girl named jasmine seibers, you know anything about that?

  22. Good luck on your journey! Im an avid runner and have always wanted to do a triathlon, but im terrified of the swim. I hope this year to change that as I too have signed up for my first tri…. Cant wait to follow your journey

    • The swim was my absolute biggest fear. I was able to put together a last minute relay team for the tri I was supposed to compete in last October (a leg injury kept me from being able to do the whole thing) and I had to do the swim portion of the race. If I can do the open water swim, I’m positive that anyone can! It was my biggest triathlon fear and it wasn’t near as bad as I thought. πŸ™‚

  23. well said. I have the same reason I am going for marathons. I never liked running but I want to eliminate any hate in my life and I’m turning that fact slowly into a love. Nice blog I shall follow. Keep up the nice work πŸ˜€

    • Thanks so much for reading! Good luck in your marathon training. I’m not a natural runner, so I’m amazed and inspired by people who train for and run marathons!

    • Thank you so much! I enjoyed the photos on your post today. There is definitely a troll in that little house, sitting on a couch watching tv and eating chips. πŸ™‚
