Growing up, I called myself a swimmer. I did a few marathons, and called myself a runner. I now proudly call myself a triathlete. After competing in my first triathlon in 2012, I fell in love with the sport and began this amazing adventure. Follow me as I chase my dreams as a professional athlete!
Ironman Lake Placid has a sort of special place in my heart. I’ve never actually raced there, but it was the first ironman I ever watched, back in 2013 when Matt raced. We also spent some time training there that summer. I dreamed of coming back one day and racing. When they removed the pro race last year, I knew I might have to wait to be able to race there….

Well, today is my last day in my 20s. I’ll turn 30 on the 30th! I think that’s also called your Golden Birthday, which is suppose to be lucky! I’m ready to take on a new year and a new decade. My 20s were pretty great, and I have no doubt my 30s will be even better! In honor of this special occasion, here are 30 things you may not know about me…
Hey y’all! We’ve been down in Texas for 2.5 weeks racing Ironman 70.3 in Galveston and putting the finishing touches on our training for Ironman Texas, which is only a few days away! Although I haven’t purchased any cowboy boots yet, I’ve driven a huge pickup truck, seen many snakes, eaten crawfish, and experienced some drowning-in-my-own-sweat humidity. I also haven’t seen Tim Riggins yet, but I’m holding out hope… Anyways! Here’s a little… Read More
Matt and I just returned to Boston after a great 2 week trip to Southern California. We spent a week and a half in San Diego, getting in some solid training in the amazing weather. We then went up to Oceanside, where we kicked off race season at Ironman 70.3 California.
This year, I’m thrilled to announce a new sponsorship with Coeur Sports. I am proud to represent such a great company and inspiring group of women. If you don’t know Coeur, they are a women’s specific, endurance clothing company. But, as you’ll see, they are SO much more than that.
Many athletes and teams use the off-season to work on their weaknesses. Race (or game) season is far enough away, that spending a good chunk of your time working on your weaknesses not only makes sense, but is essential to going into the next season more prepared and year-over-year progress. It’s tough for people to do this sometimes – typically, our weaknesses are our least favorite things. We want to do more… Read More
Ironman #1 is done – and what an amazing experience! I’m just barely coming of the high I felt post-race. I now understand what everyone has been telling me, describing to me – the ups and downs, the wide range of emotions, and how tough those last 90 minutes were going to be!
I’m sitting here, on the eve of my first Ironman, in my Normatec boots (aka my space pajamas, as my BIL would call them), and figured I owe you guys an update! After spending much of 2014 prepping for Ironman Chattanooga, it is finally here.
The 2014 edition of the Musselman Half, my first time at this race, was one to be remembered! Here are my top 5 memorable moments from the day.
I had a really awesome trip to St. George. St. George 70.3 is one to put on your race bucket list – a really tough but stunningly beautiful course. The swim is in a (usually) calm and clean lake, and the bike and run have incredible mountain and desert views. But, it is hilly, hot, and can be windy. This course is no joke! Pat, Doug, and I also got to stay… Read More
