I’m happiest engulfed in sunshine, running around in my swimsuit, with my toes in the sandiest of beaches, and swimming in the saltiest of water.
Summer, where are you?

Bellingham cleaned up in Olympia today at the @racecascadia Cascade Super Gravel, I’ll take 2nd place behind this fast lady. A few lessons learned after my first gravel race, biggest one being need more gears. Hydration and nutrition were on point, after 4 hours and 47 minutes Of racing I’m happy to say I didn’t bonk!
•2 bottles of hydration + 2 plain water bottles 💧
•2.5 sleeves of @clifbar Shot blocks
•a couple handfuls of candy 🍬
Longest and hilliest ride in 3 years!👊🏼👊🏼
It was fun to see other Bellingham @pivot_cyclesusa vaults out there! All equipped with @maxxisbike Ramblers- no flats on these bikes!

There’s no denying being an injured athlete sucks.
What does it take to keep your head above water when you feel like you’re drowning in your injury?
2 hip surgeries later, countless hours of PT, isolation, tears, and ultimately strength. I’m here to share my story. Find the link in my bio and give it a listen. Thanks @sonyalooney1 for having me.
What I’ve learned from injury:
🔹it doesn’t last forever.
🔹don’t focus on what you can’t do. Focus on what you can.
🔹love yourself for being YOU and not the athlete you.
🔹surround yourself with supportive teammates, friends, family, and sponsors.
🔹be focused on your recovery, but know sometimes it’s not completely linear. Isolation doesn’t mean you’re focused. 🔹you are NOT your injury.
My blog has a lot more insight on my journey of up and down struggles. You aren’t alone, we all go through it!

Well...swimming in the Caribbean Sea was luxurious, warm, and insanely beautiful, but it’s time to get back to work on the bike ➡️. For the first time since 2016 I get to TRAIN during the off season instead of recover from hip surgery💪🏼 and oh boy is it going to be good. Lots of fun stuff planned for this Spring!! #neverstopexploring #offseason #belize #caribbeansea #centralamerica #ridebikeshavefun 📸 #2 @bruce_buckley
Words can’t describe how sad I am to leave this amazing country. From inland jungle tours, to swimming in crystal clear waters with nurse sharks, sting rays, spotted eagle rays, turtles, and all the fish you can imagine.
Belize, you stole my ❤️. We’ll be back, but for now we start the 2 day journey home.

The world is I large, yet small. 🐟🏝The Caribbean Sea is the most beautiful water I have ever swam in.
I live a lucky, privileged life 🙏🏻 #CentralAmerica #belize #caribbean #icantbelizeit #2019kicksass #raggamuffintours #southwatercaye #travel #thisluckylife
Hello Xunantunich, you are mighty and we are small.
The Mayan ruins are more spectacular in person. Amazing experience visiting this ancient city.
It has been estimated that 1-2 MILLION Mayans once occupied Belize. Current population? Somewhere in the 300,000. #themoreyouknow #wefinallyheadtothebeachtoday #xunantunich #belize #dreamvacation #elcastillo
