In the early part of week 3, I caught a bug that quickly flatlined me. I tried my best to work through it -- meaning, I worked from home for as much as humanly possible. I tried to stay coherent on work phone calls, and I hope my emails and data analyses made sense. I'm … Continue reading Week 3+4 Desert’s Edge Tri Training Recap: Out Sick!
I'm into my second week of this modified training plan and I have to say...I'm liking it so much more. The hours are so much more manageable compared to my last plan.

My eighth Rock n Roll race of the year was in Chicago. What an adventure that was! This was the quickest turnaround trip I think I've ever done for an out-of-state race. I had a class the morning before my trip that kept me on my toes. After my class was over. It required a bit … Continue reading Race Recap: Rock n Roll Chicago Half Marathon 2017
