“You think your legs are tired? My arms are killing me!”
A little recap in pictures of my win at #im703victoria this weekend: 1. You never want to let this banner go! 2. Dancing at the start line is my fav way to shake off some nerves. 3. The swim exit look says it all: #nailedit Goal was to stay on @jenspieldenner’s toes, which I just about did! Exiting 8s back from the lead… 4. Bike course is unrelenting with just about no flat sections. So you’re either like this… 5. …or like this. My RPE on the bike was high, but watts were low. @annett_jen caught me just after the halfway mark. Tried to hang on to her; just didn’t happen. 6. With a 3.5min lead, I admit I thought Annett had the W in the bag. But with speedsters like Spieldenner and @linseycorbin on my tail, I knew I had to run hard to fend them off! 7. With 2 miles to go, I had reeled in Annett and took the lead. Hitting the red carpet was an emotional experience for me on home turf. 8,9. Racing with friends is the best. 10. Spraying each other with cheap champagne is even better! . . Massive thanks to my incredible sponsors and supporters for getting me here! @wattieink @diamondbackbike @reynoldscycling @compressport_ca @topoathletic @hansbrauninvestments @velofix @pioneercycleusa @blueseventy @fieldworknutritionco @coffeemethod @pacificpokeofficial @zealiosskincare @ismseat @sciconbags @zazubean @tower_26 @feedbacksports @51speedshop . .
