Gran Fondo Hincapie 2020

Ah, the final event of the 2020 “season”. 2020 has been a bit of a dud, to say the least. With COVID-19 precautions cancelling most events with large groups, I’ve been able to race a total of 3 times this year – 1 sprint triathlon at Andy’s Race, 1 11-mile trail run at the Sandhills […]

Andy’s Race 2020

  It’s my first triathlon of 2020 and it’s August! So much has changed in 2020 due to COVID-19. Just about every race has been cancelled. My big races for the year – Chattanooga 70.3, Blue Ridge 70.3, and IRONMAN Lake Placid – have all been cancelled and deferred to 2021. It’s understandable – IRONMAN […]

The 2020 Triathlon Season is Cancelled

We’re 3 months into the COVID-19 pandemic and one thing is clear, the 2020 triathlon season has been cancelled. The big races I had planned for this year were Chattanooga 70.3, Blue Ridge 70.3, and my first full distance IRONMAN Lake Placid. I guess we’ll try again in 2021! In terms of triathlon training, I’m […]

January, February 2020 + Coronavirus

Again, it seems to have been a long break since my last blog post. I was supposed to be writing a race report for the Parris Island Triathlon this weekend, but things have really gone a bit wild in the first 2.5 months of 2020. To start the year, I woke up on January 1, […]

November/December 2019 Reflections

It feels like it’s been a while since I updated my athlete blog. The triathlon season finished for me in mid-October with The Dam Tri. I then did the Gran Fondo Hincapie in Greenville on October 19th. I intended to do the 80-mile Gran route, but I took a spill early in the descent down […]

2019 Triathlon Season Reflections

Let me start by saying that I’m incredibly grateful to have had an exciting, and healthy, 2019 triathlon season. It wouldn’t have been so successful without the support of my husband, the guidance of my coaches at TriMarni Coaching and Nutrition, the understanding of my clients, and me for taking care of myself and listening […]

The Dam Tri 2019

I’m going to make this race recap short and sweet for the last triathlon of my 2019 season. The South Carolina Triathlon Series finishes up every year with this sprinternational distance at the Lake Murray Dam. It tends to be a competitive field as athletes are vying for top points for their final series standings. […]

IRONMAN 70.3 Augusta 2019

What a hot, humid, typical Augusta race! This was my second time doing IRONMAN 70.3 Augusta. The first was in 2016, only my second half Ironman ever. I finished in 5:50 then, and it absolutely broke me. I had to spend half an hour in the medical tent afterwards due to overheating, and just felt […]
