Humid, Hilly, Huatulco

Last weekend was my seasonal World Cup debut. I raced Huatulco WC last year and the conditions of the course absolutely crushed me.  I have an appreciation for the difficulty on this course. I came back this year with a little more experience and much better preparation. I knew what to expect in terms of the course itself and the hot weather. For me this race was a process to race smart and stick to my plan that my Coach Craig Taylor had set out for me. The goal was stay cool as long as possible, position myself well, and stay hydrated/fueled. I made a few minor errors during the race but I did my best to commit to that plan from start to finish, and execute a smart race. This resulted in a solid and respectable 11th place finish. I am happy with the consistency I'm developing as a U23 triathlete. I still have a lot of work ahead of me but I am slowly climbing that ITU points ladder. I'm learning every race and excited for the Pan American Cup coming up on July 12th in Toronto.

A huge thanks to all my amazing sponsors. CEP for pre and post race recovery! HoneyMaxx for fueling my bottles! Altra, Nineteen Wetsuits and Titika! 

Happy Days
