rarely do we sit down and appreciate all the good we have done. all too rarely do we celebrate our human potential. | thank you @lodrorinzler for the daily reminder ๐Ÿ’ญ to stay ever present in all things we do, think, say, and feel (whether that's in our daily mindfulness practice โœจ...or biking to get tacos ๐ŸŒฎ)

one week of rest later ๐Ÿ’ค & the next countdown is on โฐ: 27 days until I'll be racing the Iron Girl triathlon near my hometown in columbia, maryland. my family will watch me race for the first time (cue me sobbing as I cross the finish line ๐Ÿ˜ญ) and not to mention, the entire mission of @irongirlevents is to empower young girls and women to live their best healthy lifestyle ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป...something I am ๐Ÿ’ฏ% on board with. that being said, I've received quite a few messages/emails over the last week from gals telling me I've inspired them to sign up for their first triathlon after reading my story ๐Ÿ˜ฑ words can't even begin to describe the emotions I feel when reading these messages โœจ feeling all sorts of #blessed and I hope I can swim ๐ŸŠ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ/ride ๐Ÿšด๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ/run๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ with some of you amazing ladies one day ๐Ÿ’•

I got into triathlons because it allowed me to raise money and awareness around innovative cancer research, something I'm so deeply passionate about because my own dad is a survivor. after the New York City triathlon wrapped on Sunday, I found out another family member of mine had a mass growing on their brain. I will never understand WHY this happens to one person but I will always continue to push for solutions on HOW we can get closer to figuring out mysteries like these. give your loved ones an extra long hug tonight.

my favorite photo from yesterday morning. focus. dedication. early morning hip shakes. double days. it's insane how it all just comes down to one moment - when the gun shot goes off at 6:40AM and you're jumping into the Hudson River without a wetsuit to swim a mile - something you couldn't even do three years ago. this photo of me was taken within five minutes of jumping in. it captures the same fear I talk about before every race. you consume yourself with these questions that are so real and unavoidable and even after you put in all that work, you begin to doubt yourself in the final minutes. but you snap out of it, you breathe, you reset and repeat: believe, achieve. doubt, you're out. #motivmob

today I placed fifth ๐Ÿ… in the @nyctriathlon and shaved 24 minutes off my last race time ๐ŸŠ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿšด๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ I'm at a loss for words, as this is ๐Ÿ’ฏ% my dream race. thank you ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป to all my sponsors and coach this season who worked equally as hard to get me here: @adidasrunning ๐Ÿ‘Ÿ@mowgliinthejungle ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿป @nysc ๐ŸŠ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ @motivny ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป @nuunhydration ๐Ÿ’ฆ now off to eat ๐ŸŒฏ + ๐Ÿช and ๐Ÿ˜ด forever

all the positive feels today โ˜€๏ธ

to every gal out there struggling with body image, this one's for you. growing up I always felt like the odd one out physically ("small" boobs, "big" hips) due to the weird societal pressures of perfectionism put on young women. I didn't have a role model who looked like me to say, "girl, you're amazing just the way you are" (๐Ÿ’๐Ÿป) so I grew up not loving or appreciating my body up until very recently. when @yourbreastself asked me to unpack this, I was a little hesitant to go down that rabbit hole but I did hoping that somewhere at least one girl could benefit from me sharing my experience of feeling shameful of my body & how I overcame it + help her realize she IS fucking amazing the way she is. link in bio.

this is the face of a gal who crushed 12 hours of sleep last night ๐Ÿ’ค then swam a 1 mile ๐ŸŠ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ, cycled for 25 miles ๐Ÿšด๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ, and ran 3 miles ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ. now I'm tapering, getting all the rest ๐Ÿ˜ด and water ๐Ÿ’ฆ and ๐Ÿฅ‘๐Ÿฅ”๐ŸŒ๐Ÿณ and couldn't be happier โœจ
