Last week was my birthday week and I’m not mad about it…I’m excited! Aging up this year means a new age group for racing, so I am now one of the youngest in my age group. Awww yeah!! #LFG ⚡️
I have decided to share my big, bold, next level goal with the world. This is my step one. I am ready to elevate myself to my next level and create something I’ve never done before! Do I have all of the steps and answers figured out for achieving this big, bold, next level (and also scary) result? Hell no, BUT I am open and willing to figure them out in the process. Leveling up will require GROWTH and COURAGE; both of which are my core values. This big, bold, next level result is going to challenge me to continue to GROW into the best version of myself + it will take COURAGE to navigate fear and uncertainty as I elevate myself to my next level! I am here for it all! ⚡️
I am a podium finisher at IRONMAN Arizona on November 20, 2022 #LFG ⚡️

Thursday I had some longer sets of zone 4 effort. When I splashed into the pool, I was tired and felt like I was swimming in corn syrup (because that is a relatively clear viscous liquid 🤣). Thankfully by the time I got to my first 800 at Z4 effort I had taken the time to get my brain in the game and was warmed up and ready to go!
