Yesterday I had the most fun I have ever had at a multisport event. What was set to be the triathlon was changed at the last minute to a Aquathon (4.2km run/ 500m swim/ 4.2km run) due to slippery roads from recent rain. The event was held at the Halcyon Waters Retirement Village and simply put, there needs to be more triathlons done there. The residents put so much into planning the event for us and were so excited to see us compete. There were residents that lined their streets to wave and cheer us on for every lap, we had some residents run with us, some who offered us hot cups of tea (and even the odd gin and tonic), and their were others who made archers for us to run under on the home stretch, as well as high fiving us just for giving it a go. After we finished the race they put on a big BBQ for everyone along with a coffee cart, ice cream truck and a band just to celebrate our achievements. It melted our hearts and our week could not have finished on a higher note. I truly will never forget the experience as it goes down as the happiest and most memorable events that I have ever taken part in. If anyone you know is retiring soon - this is the place to be 😊 Also pictured is Bec who has also had a heart transplant (the residents were very impressed that we were so matchy) - Bec bloody aced it! .
It always seems impossible until it is done — the quote for my whole year of training leading up to #ironmanwaco703 . It’s been a long road but the finish line is finally in sight. The pool was crowded for a hot minute today & it actually turned out to be good OWS training. Waves in my mouth when trying to breath, people crossing my lane to get to the stairs, knee pain AKA one legged kicking ... all the adventures 😂 #swimhappy#triathlontraining#swimbikerunrepeat#ironman703training#trihappy#4weeks
You know how one of the 12 steps of AA is to go on one last bender to get it out of your system
What's that you say? That's not a thing?
Well then how come it always sounds like such a good idea when I decide to start eating better... tomorrow?
This time I'm also going to try to kick my Diet Coke habit by going cold turkey for all of October.
But today is still September 30th! Wish me luck!
Met this guy on my run today. Shortly after this photo I tried to keep running but he didn't get the "not a predator" memo and trotted along the side of the road about 5m in front of me for a couple hundred meters not realizing I just wanted to get past. Then he turned, cut me off and bounded into the woods. Nice guy, not much of a talker.
Honestly the most rewarding part of my day in Augusta 70.3 was watching the athletes I coach complete their first half IM. Extremely proud of their dedication and commitment to the new challenge the signed up to. Improvement came each month to build up to the main event. First swim practice was hard to manage 50 meter swim and they ended up doing over 3,000 yard workouts. First time trial of 10 miles on the bike was a huge effort and yet by the end they went well over the 60 mile mark. Definitely a new sport to my running friends but they embraced the new disciplines and worked hard for the last 9 months to get this medal. Great job!!! Pat yourselves on the back and enjoy the accomplishment and the recovery. 🏊🏼♀️🚴🏼♂️🏃🏽♀️🏅💪🏼#imaugusta703#goals#triathlon#imfinisher#swim#bike#run#ironmancoach#letsgetfit123
#latergram vom @frankfurtcitytriathlon im August. Es ist jedes Mal ein überragendes Gefühl, über die Ziellinie zu laufen. 👌🏻😅 Für viele ist heute nochmal #raceday . ••••• Eine Woche nach dem #gelitatrailmarathon sind auch meine Beine wieder frisch und der Kopf denkt immer nur ans Laufen. Es ist schon ein bißchen verrückt und ich lasse es am Besten noch etwas reifen, aber ich glaube, ein #marathon dieses Jahr ist noch drin... Do what you love! ❤️😬🤗 Alles Guten für @fra_fighter sowie allen anderen Startern heute beim #kraichgaulauf . ••••• #laufliebe#laufenmachtglücklich#katrinläuft#triathlongirl

My right ribs hurt a lot after my fall 🚴🏻♀️😭 After talking it through with my coach, I’m hoping it’s just a displaced rib. I’ve had that happen before. This swim was not good. I did 500 slow mixed stroke & then kicked 300. I didn’t think it was worth it to aggravate it anymore. Hoping to get a chiro appointment stat! #triathlontraining#swimbikerunrepeat#ironman703training#ironmanwaco703#trihappy
