I managed my longest bike ride so far - 8 miles in 37 minutes. It’s way different indoors than out! Followed it with a 6 min walk/jog about 1/3 a mile. All in all, I am just happy that I went and worked out, and didn’t make an excuse or let my kids’ not really wanting to go there ;in the daycare room) stop me from doing this for ME today! #bike#firsttri#firsttriathlon#newbietriathlete#momtriathlete#summeroftri
Great ride today despite a head cold and jet lag! Only 73 kms to go in the @greatcyclechallengecanada. I started the challenge trying to raise $150 and ride 150 kms. I upped my fundraising goal to $1200 and my riding goal to 300 kms. I’m almost there for both goals but only 4 days left to get the Kms in!! (Donation link will remain active in July!)
Compete in an Off Road Triathlon ✅
Lake Swim 750m/Mountain Bike 12.8k/Trail Run 5.5k
Smashed it Sunday by finishing the Squamish Off Road Triathlon, with only a three day turnover from the entry to the event. I still managed to come 3rd in my Age Group 🤯. I can’t thank the fitfam enough, who motivated me to enter and help make everything easy with training, all the gear and helping at the event. As well as a big shout out the fellas for coming down to watch and the pre-game feast 😏... it’s actually amazing what your body is capable off and what you can achieve with the right people around you.
Roll on Dodge City X Off Road Triathlon on Sep 7th 💪🏼
Neonatal babies are Superheroes in disguise!
We’ve just got about 7 weeks until Freddie will be swimming, cycling and running his way through his first ever Superhero triathlon!
Freddie has come a long way in his 6 years in this world and to complete this will be another huge achievement.
As people have kindly offered to show their support by sponsorship we would like to donate any sponsors towards 'Early Lives.' This charity supports the Neonatal unit at UCLH where Freddie received life saving treatment after he was born. I am absolutely not asking for sponsorship but for all those who have shown interest in supporting us in this way I have included the link to our justgiving page in my bio.
After years of autoimmune disease and associated health issues I have come back stronger mentally and physically then before. At one point I was almost unable to walk now I am training for a year for a 140.6 mile race.
Doctors said I would never fully recover and I would not be able to do sports unless I took immune suppressing medications my whole life.
I would not accept that as a answer. I found the one doctor who knew he could help me without any medication and that finally started turning things around.
Remember just because someone is book smart does not mean they are right. Doctors can tell you you won’t be the same and you won’t if you believe them. But if you have strong enough reasons you know what you are capable of no one else does.
When you are going through a difficult time it is not easy to recover it takes discipline and sacrifice I never cheat with my diet because I had to sacrifice unhealthy foods to be healthy. I sacrifice comfort to gain strength mentally and physically. I sacrifice time watching TV so I can learn business and have financial health. Sacrifice = Reward. And the sacrifices you make are almost always smaller than the rewards.
Please share this post with someone who it would help because this would have helped me a lot when I was struggling with autoimmune disease.
If you want to join me the race is next year in Santa Rosa CA is on July 25 2020.

I would love to train with some other athletes/friends for the Big Sur trail marathon on September 28 2019
And the Monterey Olimpic Triathlon on October 20th 2019. DM me if you are Intrested.
Inspiring weekend with some bad-ass women. Not quite the balmy summer weather that everyone had hoped for on Saturday, but they embraced it. And they crushed it. And these ladies taught me so much for my first tri on Sunday. Training together has been a blast. What’s next? •
Adventure means something different to each and every one of us.
Some of us find adventure is the participation of adrenaline-pumped activities, whilst for some of us, adventure is found when we push ourselves beyond our comfort zone. But adventure isn't simply hanging on a rope off the side of a mountain. Adventure is an attitude that we must apply to the day to day obstacles in life.
I think if your life is NOT an adventure then you ain’t doing it right! Step outside of your comfort zone, leave the routine of life behind.
Life is meant to be exciting and it is meant to be a great adventure.
A full day already including the Enchanted Forest and the Wilderness Sanctuary.

On the second day of summer, no thanks to the weather, I ran my first sprint triathlon(800m swim, 15 mile bike, 5k run) and finished first in my age group!🥇 Going into this race I was truly terrified and so nervous. Not only was it 46 degrees out, pouring rain until start time and the water I was about to jump into 55 degrees, but I felt I could’ve and should’ve trained so much more. I thought it was going to be miserable.
But as soon as I jumped into the water, all my nerves went away and I ended up falling in love with this event. I can most definitely say that their are plenty more sprint tri’s in my future. As for the Olympic pace, I praise all those participants for being incredible individuals and maybe one day I’ll attempt one.
Thank you @josh_mielke_ for supporting me and loving me throughout this entire process and for being my professional photographer, #1 fan, and being there around all the curves of the race. I am so grateful for you❤️. #sprinttriathlon#laketolaketriathlon#firsttriathlon#swimbikerun

PRed my 2-mile today... but I am taking into account it was on the treadmill and I feel like you can PR anything on a treadmill😅 Also giving some cred to the OTO (one time only) hill sprints I ran last week.
I’ve had to alter my training plan to tailor my APFT (Army Physical Fitness Test) which is in ~3 weeks and to be honest I’m not a huge fan of it. I dread my daily push-ups and sit-ups and don’t like not being able to run as far. (Working mostly on speed and not distance rn) However my booty (and brain) are enjoying the growth from less cardio!
It’s not easy to do things you don’t enjoy but you are always capable of doing so much more than you think you can and that’s what keeps me going 💯
Fun tip: if you’re sad, smile for 30 seconds and you might just trick your brain into thinking your happy 🤗
Un beau résumé des émotions qui m'ont traversé durant ce tout premier Triathlon.. Je l'ai rêvé, préparé, attendu, stressé et maintenant je l'ai vécu 🏊🏃🚴 ça y est je peux me définir en tant que toute jeune triathlète.. et je peux vous le dire ce n'est qu'un début!! #tri#triathlon#triathlete#sport#firsttriathlon#sunday#motivation
First #triathlon in the books! ✔️ That was by far, the HARDEST thing I’ve ever done! 5 years ago, I could barely run a mile. Completing one of these suckers was a personal fitness dream. 💪👊🙌 Literally could not have done any part of that 1.5k swim, 40k bike or 10k run without @JohnVeta cheering me on and my dear friend @travelingtrimathlete for being my coach and inspiration. ❤️ 🏊🏻♀️ 🚲 🏃🏻♀️ #pushyourself#olympictriathlon#timetoeat
Mich hat es leider dahingerafft und ich hüte das Bett. Der Start beim Ecotrail Halbmarathon in Oslo hängt am seidenen Faden. Dementsprechend schlecht ist auch meine Laune heute.
Ein Blick auf die Fotos der Challenge Heilbronn konnte mir jedoch sofort wieder ein Lächeln ins Gesicht zaubern!
Jetzt träume ich mich mal wieder zurück auf die Radstrecke und hoffe einfach auf schnelle Genesung 😊
🕺🏼 1 month until my first triathlon...
✅ I kind of like this riding thing
✅ Coach Wifey got me open water swimming
✅ No Ironman in 2020 (Hard pass on Tulsa 🙄)
Trying to take advantage of my “recovery” week but keep getting my ass kicked running with bossman & fighting jet lag 🤷🏼♂️
