Well, it's been quite a time here in Australia. To come away with two age group world titles (one of those being an overall world title) in two races is pretty unbelievable. I even got to meet and ride with 2nd place finisher in the women's WTS overall standings, USA Triathlon's #1 triathlete, and all-around amazing human, @kzaferes6. After I won my 2nd world championship, she just HAD to get her picture with me 😜
Thank you to everyone who has sent me messages over the last few days. I've been pretty focused preparing for and executing my races so I haven't been able to reach out to everyone who has sent a message. All the support really means a lot to me, though.
Thank you to @lrerios, @younttim, @carynmaconi, and the entire @usatriathlon crew for organizing our trip and making everything as smooth as possible for us. I registered extremely late for the races and literally wouldn't have been here had it not been for some last minute miracles pulled off by the USA Triathlon crew.
Thanks to Coach Barb for getting me ready to put together not one but two great races. Having a coach who I can trust has been immeasurable to my success. I know that what she has planned for me will get me ready to be my best on race day (even if I don't want to do a workout!) Thanks to my @emjtriteam teammates and sponsors for all the motivation you provide. I'm just trying to keep up with you guys!
And thanks to my family and friends for all their support. Especially my mom @lbuck1961, dad @tbucking, and brother @_tbuckingham. I couldn't do it without you guys. I think they are more excited than I was!
Now I'm heading up the coast to Cairns for a great barrier reef excursion and a trip through the rainforest before heading to Sydney and then back to the States. I'm not going to worry about training or much of anything the next few days. Taking some much needed R&R!

A couple of weeks ago, I raced back-to-back days at the USA Triathlon Age Group National Championships in Cleveland, OH. As a Michigander, I'm convinced that nothing good comes from Ohio (😜), but these cinnamon rolls may have convinced me otherwise! Several friends recommended the West Side Market to me and I'm glad we went. They had everything from produce to baked goods to candy shops to butchers...just about anything you can imagine (think of a typical Farmers' Market x100!) The first cinnamon roll was from Michelle's Bakery and it was oh so ooey and gooey. Typically, those are not adjectives you want to describe your food but in the case of cinnamon rolls, it is definitely a plus! The second one was a pecan cinnamon roll crisp. Imagine a cinnamon roll that has been flattened by a steam roller and then baked until crispy. While it wasn't a traditional cinnamon roll, it was still delicious. So much so that my mom couldn't wait for me to take a picture before taking a bite πŸ˜‚ 2 races in 2 days deserves 2 cinnamon rolls, right?? πŸ˜‹

Wow! What a weekend in Cleveland for the USA Triathlon Age Group National Championships. An Olympic-distance triathlon Saturday and a sprint-distance duathlon (it was supposed to be a tri, but the swim was cancelled) Sunday. Somehow I managed to win my age group for both races, even as my legs were giving out from underneath my body. Thankfully, I've got a great support crew to hold me up! πŸ€— My family, teammates, friends, and coach are the reason I'm able to race so well. It paid off with 2 epic days of racing and a couple of sweet guitar medals complete with actual guitar straps! My brother pointed out that these are national championship numbers 4 and 5 for me in the last 3 years. Pretty cool! I'm spent, sore, and satisfied 😊

True story: I wore my @garneau @emjtriteam race kit under my suit for defending my dissertation and under my regalia for graduation. Why? Because it makes me feel like a superhero! Talk about #kitspiration! This is the kit that all other kits wish they could be. πŸ“Έ: @karrigan_ks β€’ β€’ β€’

3 years in a row I've finished behind Louie at the @grtriathlon. This year, we were together for literally the entire race except for the last 2 miles of the run when I was finally able to open a little gap. You can see from the picture of us during the run that we were literally shoulder to shoulder. Ferocious competitors on the course, but mutual respect and admiration for each other as you can see from the picture of us hugging at the finish line. Thanks for your friendship and this "rivalry" over the years, Louie πŸ€—
I think I had a few secret weapons this year that really helped me out. First, my friend, fellow triathlete, and bike guru, @tri_eabbott (Eric Abbott), hooked me up with a deep clean on my bike and a fresh new @icefriction chain. I only averaged 248W and was still able to hold 25.5mph while feeling extremely comfortable. If you're looking for a knowledgeable bike brain in the GR area, Eric is your guy! Second, the @emjtriteam had a bunch of guys racing and we were able to have team dinner the night before at @benehammer's house. Catching up with friends, relaxing, and great food got me ready to roll.
As always, thanks to my family, friends, coach, and sponsors for all their support! It sure feels great to finally get the win at one of my hometown races.

I was in the Twin Cities last week for the @acsm1954 annual meeting. Of course, I had to try the local flavor πŸ˜‹ Cinnamon rolls, hi tops (bavarian cream donut topped with different flavor combinations, pictured middle row), and an American tea cake (pictured bottom right). The hi tops were a new experience for me and if you're in the Twin Cities, you've got to give them a try! My winner for the week was the cinnamon roll from The Buttered Tin in downtown St. Paul (pictured bottom row - middle). The look, the taste, the frosting...everything about this roll was fantastic. More in depth reviews of each to come 😊
