Never take racing for granted, because not racing sucks.
Dealing with a stubborn injury and hopefully nearing the end of it. Definitely one of the most mentally difficult lows of my triathlon career. Soldiering on with a ton of bike miles which on a positive note has allowed for some of my best bike workouts ever.
Instagram doesn’t tell you about my wicked bad mood, Eric’s flat, the insane wind, or the suffering through 6x10min. Not always as glamorous as the photos, but we made it home alive. Shoutout to @castellicanada for the sharp new kit 🙏 #triathlontraining#dyj
Long rides are my nemesis, but this one wasn’t so bad! Solo mission with Eric away racing this weekend, but with nice roads and good snacks, anything is possible. 🍪 #Sunday
Unfortunate DNF at #im703victoria. Had to pull the plug at 7k on the run, my achilles was sore, getting worse, and I didn’t want to do further damage keeping the whole season in mind. I guess all this racing has been a little ambitious. Frustrating because I was winning! and felt great besides the ankle issue, so taking some positives away from the day. Congrats to the podium girls & everyone who raced, this course is awesome and I’ll be back! PC: @talbotcox
Back in Vic after all these years. It’s been weirdly nostalgic riding on familiar roads, remembering the people and the workouts and the coaches who shaped my career. Feels like a lifetime ago, but I’m still here doing the same thing, just on a different bike, a different appreciation for the sport and the experiences it’s allowed me, and grateful. More than I ever was as a 20 year old. Not to get too sappy, but it feels somewhat full circle, and I love this place. #triathlon
On a boat. 🚢
Beautiful Oregon ride to kick off my 30th year, thanks @eric_lagerstrom 😘 (and I’ve officially being doing triathlon for half of my life, thanks for putting up with it @sheilafindlay33 🤣) 🥳
New XXL roof box for the sprinter, I can probably fit @eric_lagerstrom in there when he’s being grumpy. Thanks @Thule 😍
Third place at yesterday’s #im703chatt. Initially disappointed because I want to win one of these things so badly, but looking back, proud of my effort & appreciating a podium. The heat and humidity was intense and it took every ounce of my willpower to get to the finish line. The depth of field at these races keeps getting stronger and faster, so you have to be firing on all cylinders to be on top. Congrats to Heather and Skye who were the best today, and all the women who kept me honest to the finish line. Thanks coach @pstriathlon, and to the AMAZING volunteers who stood in the heat all day making sure I could dump water on my head every mile. You guys saved my life over and over. #triathlon 📸 @seanwattiewatkins
