Does this shirt make me look like a swimmer? I had a blast butterflying, backstroking, breaststroking, and freestyling (and laughing and cheering) with my @BearcatMasters teammates at the New England Short-Course Yards Championships this past weekend. Over the course of three days, I swam six events and even snagged a ribbon in the 200-yard freestyle in my age group. More importantly, I enjoyed devoting myself to the process, embracing the learning curve, and finding passion in the pain. This competition leaves me hungry for more, and I'm pumped to keep improving. #wannabeswimmer #bearcatmasters #usms #tailwindnyc #latergram #TrustTheProcess

No bellyflops, no goggle mishaps, and no last-place finishes: a successful day one at the New England Short-Course Yards Championships with @bearcatmasters! I felt smooth in the water, and I'm happy with today's execution—but as always, there is plenty to improve. Pumped to get after it again tomorrow with a focus on my turns and starts off the blocks. #wannabeswimmer #bearcatmasters #usms #trichat #tailwindnyc #TrustTheProcess

One year ago today, I traded running shoes for high heels, jeans for skirts, and my Snuggie for a space heater. Although I miss the original Rabbit Life—especially using my beloved serial comma in company collateral—I enjoy nerding out over rowing regattas, international judo tournaments, and the Olympic Games. I'm excited to see what the next year brings! #WingedFootLyfe #workflow

Effortless effort: the past few months of training have centered on repetition, execution, and precision. By focusing on the fundamentals of my not-as-strong disciplines, I've found my flow in the water and on the pavement. Chasing mastery is a lifelong process, but for now, I'm excited to compete at my swim meet next weekend (ah!) and conquer 26.2 miles at the Queens Marathon later this month (double AH!). #runchat #trichat #headspace #asseenonmyrun #centralpark #tailwindnyc #TrustTheProcess

Great execution of the first brick of the season: rode at @tailwind_endurance, ran with @ekendall9, and gorged on banana chocolate chip biscuit French toast at @jacobspickles. #trichat #runchat #metabolicallyinefficient #brunch #jacobspickles

Blissful endurance comes from quieting the mind and finding a soft focus: this process lets us stay in moment and ideally enter the elusive state of flow. Running those 15 miles felt like meditating. #runchat #trichat #asseenonmyrun #centralpark #nyc #tailwindnyc #TrustTheProcess

About last night: working and running collided at the 110th #NYRRMillroseGames . Lots of great racing with two American records set. It's going to be an exciting season!

Lead with love: raise it high, let it shine, and use it to drive, guide, and inspire you for miles on miles on miles. #LoveTrumpsHate #wmnyc #womensmarchnyc #nyc #womensmarch #latergram

Kicking off Friday—and hanging on for dear life—with my @bearcatmasters buds. #wannabeswimmer #bearcatmasters #usms #trichat #tailwindnyc #TrustTheProcess
