MIAMI 70.3 RACE REPORT - This summer I set out with a moonshot plan of having a chance at a pro card. To do this, one must complete 3 races within 8% of the winning pros time at races with more than $8k of prize money, or get top 3 overall AG within 8% of pros time. Easy, right?! (Just kidding) I didn’t do 3 races with prize money this year so a one and done strategy was concocted. I knew it was LONG LONG shot, like shaking hands with the pope longshot, but why not go for it. Justin Bieber said it best with YOLO.

 

The team was assembled with my Dad and best friend Connor flying into Miami for the race. Having people take time away from their lives and spend it helping me keeps my fire going. In my opinion, the tri journey would suck without remarkable people along the way. From Paul Cregar showing me triathlon freshman year of college, to Nate Dicks for taking the time to listen to me complain about phantom injuries and crafting world class training plans, and to Kate for being a kickass human and giving support every step of the way while dealing with me in beta brain mode. It’s a hell of a team I have. In Miami, the stars aligned and spirits were sky high when we came together ready for battle....

The Pequod was sailing past transition looking for Ahab’s Leg. Below is a video of patrol boats overseeing the swim leg....READ MORE
