I hope everyone survived winter and got some good training in. I got an early start on my 2016 season in Panama where I had a disappointing race. After having much success last year I felt a little more pressure going into 2016. My expectations of myself were a bit higher than they were last year and I felt more people were watching.
Instead of going into 70.3 races as a newbie and underdog I now am one of the athletes contending for the win. I am not sure I like this!
This year will be a learning experience for sure and I look forward to trying to defend my titles at some of the races I did last year. Each race season is a new chapter waiting to be written - one training session and one race at a time!
The winter was a little inconsistent for me as I got sick multiple times and just last weekend had a bike crash. However, these lows are what drive us as athletes to achieve the highs. I am motivated and excited to get 2016 underway. I will be racing next at St. Anthony's triathlon on April 24th.
Thanks for following and hope to see you at a race this year!
