ironman world championship

kona 2017.


Being in Kona this year for the IRONMAN World Championship was all the emotions – from bittersweet + bummed to not be racing as I’d hoped to a little bit relieved to not be racing. But the most overwhelming emotion: incredible gratitude. I’m so damn grateful for all the opportunities this sport’s given me and for all the amazing people it’s brought into my life.

Highlights of the week included the obvious instagram-worthy things, like coffee boat swims, Queen K bike rides, Ali’i runs, and all the Basik açai bowls and Kona coffee. In between all that was the best part: time with my Coeur Sports family – from afternoons at the expo booth to early morning race day hugs. You’re the reason this sport is awesome. Thank you for elevating all of us ♥

And now back in the dark Minnesnowta winter, you can bet I’m channeling all the aloha from my week on the Big Island – and am beyond inspired and motivated for another go…!

With that, a few pics from my week in Kona.

No idea where the summer’s gone, but here we are at the end of August. I don’t like it! Make time stop! Bring back 9:30p sunsets! It’s always hard to accept that summer’s fleeting… especially when arctic temps aren’t that far away…! Anyway, here’s…
