Welcome to October!

It's hard to believe I'm gearing up for my seventh start at the IRONMAN World Championship. There have been some major changes over the years, and it's really exciting to be traveling to Kona for the first time as a family of three with Rinny and Izzy. What hasn't changed is my love for the sport and desire to put together the absolute best race I can on race day. I'm at peak fitness and ready. 

The IRONMAN World Championship is great opportunity to spend some time with my sponsors and fans of the sport. Below you'll see some of the events I'll be participating in - most of which you can catch online. I'll send out an appearance schedule reminder on Monday along with a pre-race update later in the week. You can also find information on my social channels. 

It's truly a team effort to get here and I am so thankful for all who contribute to Team TO including:   Trek , Trek Factory Racing , CLIF Bar , Hoka One One , Castelli , Garmin Fitness , AquaSphere , Halo Neuroscience , Smith fortyninegroupECFIT RallySport Health & Fitness Colorado MultisportMark Allen Coaching, and so many others!

Thank you for your support!
