First outdoor smashfest of the season complete! Huge thanks to @tailwind_endurance for the fitness, @therovercycleco for the long overdue bike overhaul, and to @christophhinder for the company during the hill repeats. (Read: thanks for waiting for me at the top!) Let the summer training commence! #trichat #letstalkwatts #tailwindnyc #smashfestqueen #TrustTheProcess

No lights, no problem—morning @bearcatmasters practice became a pool party. #wannabeswimmer #bearcatmasters #usms

"Do-nut" make me lead the lane! Another Friday morning well spent chasing @roymoneill and swimming with my @bearcatmasters teammates. Woohoo for freestyle Friday! #wannabeswimmer #bearcatmasters #usms #trichat #TrustTheProcess

One week ago, the #SevenPerSISTERS crossed the finish line of @TheSeneca7. I've done this 77.7-mile relay race three times, and it always prompts reflection. This year's unforgettable day served as a reminder that life is too short to pursue things that don't bring us fully alive. Surround yourself with inspirational people. Find the beauty in life's challenges. Make the most of each moment. And do what you love—whether that's running a bunch of miles or eating a container of Wegmans chocolate chip cookies or a combination of the two. #Seneca7 #7perSISTERS #runchat #3run5

A race with a view: the #SevenPerSISTERS are more than a third of the way done with the epic 77.7-mile trek around Seneca Lake! #runchat #Seneca7 #flx

Always, always, always lead with love. The #SevenPerSISTERS are ready to rock at @TheSeneca7 tomorrow. Have fun out there, everyone! #runchat #seneca7 #NeverthelessShePersisted #TheRabbitLife

#TBT to having too much fun at my first #Seneca7 in 2012 with The Run-On Sentences. (I majored in Writing and Rhetoric, and everyone on our team was affiliated with the department—what did you expect?) This race sparked my transition from basketball player to endurance athlete, and I'm pumped to make my third 77.7-mile trek around Seneca Lake this weekend with some powerful women: The Seven PerSISTERS! #runchat #throwback #getup

Obligatory #2MileTuesday post because our crew smashed it this morning: classically tough @worklivetri threshold ride followed by a lower loop in Central Park. Since starting these brick workouts this month at @tailwind_endurance, we are running about a minute per mile faster off the bike. It feels good to hit an effort that's close to race pace, but it also serves as a reminder there's still plenty of work to be done—and that's motivating and exciting. Thanks for the company, @christinaannleo and @bphill984! #trichat #runchat #letstalkwatts #tailwindnyc #runhappy #TrustTheProcess

Ending the day with a clear head, full heart, and overwhelming sense of gratitude. #runchat #trichat #asseenonmyrun #nyc #nycreservoir #tailwindnyc #sunset #TrustTheProcess

Back on dawn patrol and feeling grateful—but not that great. My legs still haven't recovered from the marathon, which is frustrating, but I'm trying to be patient. All I can do is accept and adjust; today's interval workout became a recovery run. #runchat #trichat #asseenonmyrun #sunrise #centralpark #nyc #nycreservoir #tailwindnyc #TrustTheProcess

Life as a runner and #wannabeswimmer has been a blast, but the month of April is all about being a triathlete, becoming BFFs with my bike again, and finding the watts I lost along the way: sixty minutes in the saddle and two miles on cruise control with @christinaannleo for some quality #2MileTuesday action. #runchat #trichat #tailwindnyc #letstalkwatts #findyourstrong #TrustTheProcess
