Warming up before #superleague Ottawa. I managed a 3rd place on day 1 behind ITU speedsters @nicolevdkaay and @charmcshane. The format was S-B-R, 3 times through continuously. Really happy with my swims, bikes and transitions, just lost contact on the 2nd run. I didn’t know what to expect but I am proud of my effort. It was way outside of my comfort zone and what I’ve been training for recently, but I still have a love for short & fast racing. 📸 from longtime 🇨🇦 photographer friend @gregkolz
3rd at #im703santarosa behind two of the best. After the last few months of frustration, doubts and MRI’s, this feels like a miracle. I had a strong ride and ran the best I could, lacking run fitness but happy to come away pain-free & on the podium. I do not take this for granted. Biggest thanks to @pstriathlon and @eric_lagerstrom for helping me through the good and the bad. 📸 @rockyarroyophotography
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.
