On Sunday I raced Eagleman 70.3, for the first time in five years or so… As I was running in 95+ degree temps (real feel of 108!) with NO shade I remember why I hadn’t booked a return trip in so long. It was a hot one! Here’s what race day looked like…
Early morning selfie with my best race bud, Jemila!!!
Finally! I got to race with my favorite number! Yay, 37!
You can see my trusty steed parked at the end of what I can only describe as the “kiddie table” rack…
All of the mature pros were parked on a rack behind that group of people on the left. (On the other side of that big pile of dirt.)
All kidding aside, I had a great spot in transition.
About to get in the Choptank River… Loving my Blueseventy speedsuit!
Out of the swim and into T1, looking for Black Beauty.
There she is! All racked up and ready to ride!
Reunited and it feels so good!
LOVE the Eagleman bike course! I met two large turtles along the way and a Canadian Goose who wasn’t too happy with me because I rolled between her and her smallest (and slowest) gosling.
I survived the run with the help of Napalm from Infinit Nutrition. (It saved my life!)
I finished the day in 5th. I felt incredibly honored to share the podium with Jessica Chong (not pictured), Lauren Brandon, Sarah Piampiano (not pictured), Heather Leiggi and Sarah Haskins.
Oh… and Jemila crushed it as per usual. (Superstar!)
