Happy Friday! We’re on our way to Atlanta for the Color Me Rad 5k!

After today, I’m looking forward to getting back into the swing of things and resuming my triathlon training schedule. It’s really cool to look back at my first triathlon and see how far I’ve come. Although I’ve made lots of improvements, I learn new things everyday. And that’s why I love triathlons. This sport has enhanced my life and made me a stronger person.
Have a great weekend and happy training!
