Each step, each mile, each workout offers the possibility to find the best within ourselves. As I’ve transitioned from short- to long-course training, I’ve challenged myself physically and mentally while continuing to chase that effortless effort feeling. Entering this headspace has become easier, but it hasn’t been devoid of discomfort. That’s the point, though—persevering, enduring, and feeling alive. Nine weeks until Ironman 70.3 Syracuse. Time to dial it in! #trichat #runchat #ChurchOfTheSundayLongRun #tailwindnyc #TrustTheProcess

Twenty-five and super grool: happy birthday, @mstevezz! #MeanGirlsBway #tonightsbill #broadway

Nice try, Toby. “Springtime” running is my favorite! #runchat #trichat #centralpark #nyc #winterstormtoby #asseenonmyrun #tailwindnyc #latergram #TrustTheProcess

Miles logged, descents conquered, friendships forged: until next time, #Tucson. #cyclinghouse #sunset #TrustTheProcess

A bike can take you to some amazing places. Another blissful day in #Tucson on two wheels with the @cyclinghouse crew. #cyclinghouse #gatespass #trichat #tailwindnyc #letstalkwatts #cannondale #TrustTheProcess

A trip to #Tucson isn’t complete without some quality climbing and descending time on Mount Lemmon! Huge shoutout to @magabop for the peptalk and the @cyclinghouse crew for the SAG support. #trichat #tailwindnyc #mtlemmon #letstalkwatts #cyclinghouse #SportzWithFriends #TrustTheProcess

Floating, recovering, and being a mermaid, in the words of @tailwind_endurance. 🧜‍♀️ Between the quality family and swim time, I am on cloud nine here in #Sanibel. #wannabeswimmer #fasterasamaster #bearcatmasters #tailwindnyc #trichat #TrustTheProcess

Waking up to a breathtaking #Sanibel #sunrise

As triathlon base building phase one ends—and as I ease into a recovery week—I’m looking forward to what the next few months will bring: cycling camp in Tucson, a swim meet in Boston, and a relay race through my college stomping grounds. All three of these events will serve as mini checkpoints, ensuring we’re on track as Syracuse 70.3 looms overhead. I’m so excited to keep working hard, devoting myself to the process, and, of course, doing #SportzWithFriends. My @tailwind_endurance and @bearcatmasters buds have been invaluable assets, and I’m so lucky to be surrounded by such positive and knowledgeable people. Nothing great is ever achieved alone.

Durability: the power to last, persevere, and endure. As I make the jump to the 70.3 distance, this word has become my mantra. When the discomfort arrives, when the mind wanders, when execution wavers, “durability” brings me back—it prompts me recenter, refocus, and recalibrate. Above all, it serves as a reminder that everything I need is already inside; it’s all about tapping into it. #runchat #trichat #asseenonmyrun #centralpark #tailwindnyc #TrustTheProcess
