Two things have motivated me to finally write a blog: 1) my husband telling me he checks my blog every other day and gets frustrated when he sees my last entry from over 2 years ago, and 2) my squadmates on The Triathlon Squad all having awesome blogs.
So what have a been up to the last two years??
-I have continued to train with Paulo Sousa and the Triathlon Squad. It has been a great couple of years and I have definitely improved! Last year I struggled with an injury that took me out for half of the year, but injury is always a risk when training at a high level. At the end of 2012, Paulo and I sat down and made a plan for the next 2 years. We decided it was best for me to focus on non-draft Olympic and 70.3s and to compete in ITU races when travel is easy. Since I have been focusing on ITU races since 2005, it is a pretty big change for me; but one that I am really excited about. So this year my focus is the REV3 Pro series and qualifying for Hy-Vee.
-I started working with some great sponsors. Blue Seventy, Rudy Project, PowerBar and Qfm media. I truly feel lucky to be sponsored by them! Looking forward to a great year ahead as my race season just began a couple of weeks ago with REV3 Knoxville. I plan to update my blog more often from now on. Hopefully I can stick with it!
I got married on December 29, 2012!!!
