  • Tiree Ultramarathon 2022 (10/6/2022) - This year, I did my first ultramarathon on the beautiful Hebridean island of Tiree. We lived on this island from 1984 until 1990, and continued to spend the summers there all through the 90s so it is a very special place for me, and one that I miss a great deal. The beautiful vistas, idyllic […]
  • 70.3 World Championships St. George 2021 (9/24/2021) - The 2021 IRONMAN 70.3 World Championships in St. George, Utah is one for the history books! A notoriously hard bike and run course was made even harder for the World Championships, and Mother Nature showed up as well. Here’s how it all went down for me. Pre-Race In the days leading up to the race, […]
  • Gran Fondo Hincapie 2020 (10/29/2020) - 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 (8/13/2020) -   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 (6/12/2020) - 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 […]
  • 2019 Triathlon Season Reflections (10/17/2019) - 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 (10/15/2019) - 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 (10/1/2019) - 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 […]
  • 2019 ITU Age Group World Championships – Standard Distance (9/8/2019) - This was my first World Championship experience, but I hope it’s not my last! The ITU Age Group World Championships was part of the ITU World Triathlon Grand Final Lausanne and included age group races in the sprint and standard distances, U23, Juniors, Para-triathlon, and Elite races. I qualified to represent Team USA by finishing […]
  • USAT Age Group National Championships 2019 (8/18/2019) - I sit here, a week after the USAT Age Group National Championships, trying to figure out what to write. I usually manage a race recap within a few days of the race because first, the excitement and motivation is still there, and second, the race is fresh in my mind. This time, I squeezed this […]
