Race week ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ”ฅ Iโ€™m meeting Eric in Chattanooga tomorrow and Iโ€™ve successfully packed my bike without his help ๐Ÿ˜‚ โ€ฆ I can do hard things! @that.triathlonlife #shivdisc

Sunday long ride: half on the Shiv (no photo evidence) ๐Ÿ˜ˆ, half on the Diverge (for happiness watts) ๐Ÿคธโ€โ™‚๏ธ. A good way to trick your brain into riding for 5 hours ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿ“ธ @samanthaweald ๐Ÿฅฐ

Bottles to match my kit ๐Ÿคฉ thank you @iamspecialized_tri! So cool. Also a shoutout to @kristinnicolemayer for designing my kit this year ๐Ÿ˜ and to @castelli_triathlon for putting my race kit design on winter gear so that I can ride outside in Oregon in May ๐Ÿ˜‚โ›„๏ธ @that.triathlonlife

Canโ€™t wait to watch my personal favorites, LC and HJ, race at the World Champs tomorrow. I have learned so much from them over the years and they literally inspire me every day. Canโ€™t wait to watch you both shine ๐Ÿ’ซ๐ŸŒŸ #LFG !!!

Back to regular programming: ๐ŸŠ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ + ๐ŸŽพ. @that.triathlonlife

Back in Bend and surprisingly not sore today ๐Ÿ˜‚. My run mileage & workouts have been fairly minimal this year, but yesterday was a good reminder that itโ€™s better to be slightly undercooked if it means that you can actually make it to a start line. Next for me will be Chattanooga 70.3 ๐Ÿ”จ (but first excited to cheer for my friends in St George from afar ๐Ÿคฉ). ๐Ÿ“ธ @itskennywithrow

A good day in St Anthonyโ€™s ๐Ÿ˜Š my plan was to ride as hard as possible and hold on for the run ๐Ÿ˜… mission accomplished. Biggest thanks and โค๏ธ to Eric, doing race week together has its challenges so when we both come out the other end with good results, itโ€™s a good day. Also a huge shout out to @mdsharpe1 - we trained together in our junior days and itโ€™s so cool that weโ€™re both still out here doing this (and winning)! ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ Go Canada. ๐Ÿ“ธ @higgybabyphotography

Excited to rip an Olympic distance tomorrow at St Anthonyโ€™s, Iโ€™ve always wanted to do this race but somehow this is my first time here. #LFG ๐Ÿ“ธ @eric_lagerstrom

Easy Monday with a couple of sprints, getting ready to race St Anthonyโ€™s next Sunday (no I wonโ€™t be racing with this beauty) ๐Ÿ˜‚ back on the SHIV tomorrow ๐Ÿ˜ˆ @iamspecialized_tri

Last weekโ€™s cycling stats: 12 hrs on the KICKR, 2 hrs outside ๐Ÿ˜› you take what you can get when itโ€™s winter in April. @that.triathlonlife

This weekโ€™s @that.triathlonlife video: one of the most beautiful places weโ€™ve ever been. Thank you @nickgoldston for showing us the magic โœจ link in bio. All photos: Eric and Nick.

Yesterdayโ€™s long ride: 2 hours on @gozwift + 2.5 hours on gravel. Improvising with our rollercoaster weather, but we never regret riding outside if we dress properly ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ“ธ @eric_lagerstrom

Sunday @that.triathlonlife video: everything Oceanside (but not another race report) ๐Ÿ™ƒ link in bio. Big thanks to @nickgoldston as always for making this video possible and for bringing the good vibes.

PM run at our favorite spot. Totally clear of snow which is wonderful! We have a few of these @that.triathlonlife blue hats left on our site if you want to grab one (link in bio). Photos @eric_lagerstrom โค๏ธ

11 hrs of driving yesterday (+ several coffee shop stops ๐Ÿ˜‚). Back home and ready to start ๐ŸŠ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿšดโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ-ing again. Flynn ready for a week long nap. @that.triathlonlife

Turns out Nickโ€™s solar-powered battery is enough to plug in a KICKR ๐Ÿคฏ = riding at the most amazing camping spot of all time. ๐Ÿ“ธ @nickgoldston

Oceanside 2022 vs 2018 (and a 13 min faster bike split ๐Ÿ˜) My progress has not been linear but this is a nice reminder to myself that I have actually improved in the last 4 years ๐Ÿ˜‚ thx @pstriathlon. ๐Ÿ“ธ @justinluau

Last taste of the ocean ๐Ÿ˜‹ thanks @visitoceanside for such a great weekend. Put this place on your bucket list! @that.triathlonlife

6th in Oceanside. Disappointed only because I put high expectations on myself and always want to be racing at the front, but after a night to sleep on it Iโ€™ve been able to realize some positives and come away with things to work on. Mainly trying to keep pre-race more chill ๐Ÿ’†โ€โ™€๏ธ, getting some more running in my legs ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ, and not freaking out in the waves ๐ŸŒŠ. Highlight was how many people yelled my name on the course, and sharing the 2nd lap of the run with so many people - that got me through some rough patches ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฉ. Thank you for all of the support for Eric and I and TTL. We had such a great week here! โค๏ธ ๐Ÿ“ธ @theewynn
