Happy Olympic Day! The Games still give me goosebumps. Whether it is competing in them or watching others compete, the Olympics never fails to inspire and bring people together. There is no sporting event like it. #olympicday #triathlon #rio2016 #teamusa #🇺🇸 📸: @stirlandraephoto

Next couple of weekends of racing about to kick off! Off to Philly tomorrow for an @escapeseriestri race. Looking forward to seeing where my fitness is at! #race #triathlon #swim #time #run #raceweek #taper #timetofly #bahrainendurance13 #nondraft

Lots of variety in bodies of water for swims this year, but just one wetsuit. Adding rivers to the list with Escape Philly and NYC tri coming up the next two weekends. #cleanwater #downhillswim #bayswim #teamtyr

I love being able to go home between races. It's refreshing to take a step back from the sport to refocus. Having balance in my life has helped me become a better athlete. @courtneygfox10 is always there no matter if I win or lose to support me. She makes me a better person. #wcw #betterhalf #iloveyou #balancingact

Not my day today. DNF. Body felt good all week, and legs were solid in the race. Stomach failed me on the run. Felt heavy and in a knot and made running downhill rough. Sharp contrast to last weekend, but that is racing. Going to learn and move on. Lots of racing opportunities this year. #triathlon #backatit #staypositive #swim #bike #run #WTSLeeds #highsandlows

Race day tomorrow for #WTSLeeds! 350pm local time, 750am Pacific Time! Not much else to say. Just ready to go out and race hard. #triathlon #raceready #gameface #timetofly #showyourstripes #bahrainendurance13 #runwithpower 📸: @tzaferes

Pretty cool to look back on a summary of the race. It means a lot to all the finishers, and is one of my favorite races out there. It definitely was top of my bucket list for tris. It is a classic of triathlon, and I encourage everyone to at least follow along or sign up for the race. The history of our sport is all over this race, and for good reason! There truly is no other race like it! #fbf #escapealcatraztri #hardcourse

Find things that excite you. Beautiful, challenging races are one of them. This is one of the toughest run courses out there! Time to turn up that speed for this weekend in Leeds! Body is recovering better than expected after all those stairs and hills. #globalrunningday #timetofly #runwithpower #run #triathlon #challengeyourself #strength #speed

Explored a bit while spinning out the legs. Did not expect the UK to put on a show like this! #cycling #sunshine #thedales #easyride #blackonblack #raceweek #taper #easydays

Nobody ever said @escapealcatraztri
was easy. Some pain faces from yesterday. Now I am in Leeds prepping for @worldtriathlon
#WTSLeeds, another challenging course with world class competition. #doubleraceweek #triathlon #painface #hurt #triathlon #taper #swim #bike #run #sandladder #aero 📸: @rockyarroyophotography

It feels good to raise that banner for the second year in a row! @escapealcatraztri always promises a tough race, and today delivered. Just managed to stay ahead of @camdyetri and @jasonwesttri who were charging all day! Congrats, not only to those two, but to all the racers who braved the course, and the race crew for a spectacular day! #showyourstripes #timetofly #bahrainendurance13 #teamtyr #triathlon #win #escapefromalcatraz #dowork #raceday #swim #bike #run #runwithpower

Work is done and the course is ready. Looks like San Francisco is turning on the good weather! Nothing to do now, but plan my escape! @escapealcatraztri

Also met a guy who wanted a pic because of my helmet. He knows what fast looks like!
