โ€œAnother day another boot packโ€ ๐Ÿ˜‚ we need crampons. Scenes from a very icy morning ๐ŸŽฟ. ๐Ÿ“ธ @eric_lagerstrom

We needed a safer 4WD vehicle for winter driving, and somehow Eric convinced me that a 2011 FJ cruiser was the safest (*coolest*) option. I wasnโ€™t a fan at first, but itโ€™s actually very fun and basically bombproof. Also has a plastic lined trunk to hose down when Flynn decides to take a mud bath. Weโ€™ll get a brand new 4runner one dayโ€ฆ ๐Ÿ˜‚. #toyota ๐Ÿ“ธ @samanthaweald

Really excited to be partnering with @castellicycling for my cycling and race kit this year and beyond ๐Ÿ’ฅ. My #1 priority with apparel is comfort, and after testing several race suits the decision was easy. The winter riding apparel is also the absolute best in terms of fit, fabric and warmth - obviously very important for Oregon training. Lots of fun things in the works! 2022 letโ€™s go ๐Ÿคฉ ๐Ÿ“ธ @samanthaweald

New TTL episode: getting back to training + a little bit of cooking. Winter camp in full force. Link in bio! @that.triathlonlife

Getting back to running: hard, but feeling better than I expected. Much easier with friends + dogs. Thanks for the ๐Ÿ“ท @samanthaweald! โค๏ธ

Last minute decision to ski a lap at 4pm, thereโ€™s a reason the parking lot was empty ๐Ÿ˜‚ #icecloud but we still had fun. #WNTRteam #swimbikeski @that.triathlonlife

Snowflakes the size of potato chips ๐Ÿ˜‹ @that.triathlonlife #flash

PDX -> Bend. Dying to get back to a routine at home, which probably means that itโ€™s been an appropriate break ๐Ÿ™ƒโ›ท๐Ÿช๐Ÿท๐Ÿซ ๐Ÿ“ธ @eric_lagerstrom

Todayโ€™s temps were only for the die-hard ski fans (which I am not), but my dad is, so we kept him company ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿฅถโ›ท #frozen #merrychristmas

Merry Christmas from one of the coldest places on planet Earth ๐Ÿ˜˜

Xmas shopping: started at 4pm, finished at 4:30pm ๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿผ. Always thriving under pressure. Merry Christmas Eve! ๐Ÿคฉ #thattriathlonlife #shoplocal

First truly pain-free run in 8 months ๐Ÿ˜ญ! (Short and slow but it still counts). 2021 has been a struggle, faking my way through a few races with zero run training, and barely being able to walk after. Thanks to @jaydicharry and @mobo.board Iโ€™ve been really diligent about physio since the beginning of November, and have given my ankle a real rest from training. Taking all pressure off timelines and not testing my ankle before it is truly better. Running in Canmore is a bit magic, too ๐Ÿ™ƒ. Finally Iโ€™m slightly excited for racing in 2022 ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ“ธ @eric_lagerstrom

Canada bound for Christmas. Not the most fun winter drive โ„๏ธ but we canโ€™t fly because we have a small horse to bring with us. ๐Ÿ˜… @that.triathlonlife

The predictably perfect gravel loop. Doing it as many times as possible before the snow rolls in. ๐Ÿฅฐ ๐Ÿ“ธ @eric_lagerstrom

Brutal conditions and not the best day for Eric, but proud of him anyway โค๏ธ I was actually glad to be on the sidelines for this one ๐Ÿ˜‚. Now for some much needed rest! ๐Ÿ“ธ @chrishuang95
