Wow, summer is busy! So much coaching, swimming, biking, running, camping, grilling, and fun I have just not gotten around to posting. SO, what's the update?
1. Triathlon - training has been going well and I think I have crawled out of the depths of out of shape-ness and am starting to get back into my groove! I am racing Racine 70.3 this weekend, which I would really consider the kick-off of some bigger races for the year. After that it's Ironman Mont Tremblant Aug 18, Ironman WI Sept 8th, and either IM Florida or Cozumel at the end of the year. Whew, I will be a tired girl come December!! But man do I love racing :)
|Love this girl! Whitney and me after Kansas 70.3...she rocked it, I got the cobwebs out...|
2. Coaching - I've been busy this summer w/ Open water swim training, individual coaching, and the Fourier Fitness Youth Tri Team!
This is the 3rd year for Tri-Swim Madison open water group and we just keep growing. It really becomes a close-knit group and I am so happy to spend the early mornings and evenings with such fun people.
|Plenty of time in the Kayak and on the Paddleboard this summer!|
The youth tri team is a new adventure for me this summer. The team has 25 members, ages 10-15, and meets twice a week for practice. Our team races are coming up quick:
Oregon Kids Tri, Oregon
Tri 4 Schools, Middleton
3. Other stuff- I have an amazing boyfriend and we have been just doing as much as we can this summer! It's great to have someone with a similar lifestyle and goals to spend time and go on adventures with. We are pretty much packing up my car to the brim each weekend and heading out to race, camp, spend time with family, or sometimes all 3!! I am a lucky girl :)
