Thankful for home. The more I travel, the more I look forward to just sitting right here at the end of it. I don’t own a house, but I love my home. #family #oregon

I don’t think the awe of this race venue will ever wear off for me. Really glad @tzaferes was there taking pictures. Races that progress the sport are nothing if they aren’t captured beautifully. #paininparadise #bahamas #timetrialtuesday #swimbikerun #ltpendurance #pocteam #argon18bike #knowyourwatts

2017 racing is done. Not on the high note I was working for, but zero complaints at this incredible event. Just an experience that will serve as a catalyst for change. This whole season has been turned out to be a lesson and an opportunity for reflection. Here’s to some time off and to planning 2018.
Thanks to all my sponsors for their support, and to all the people who have helped me in some way this year. There are too many to count, but none have gone un-appreciated and I feel so grateful to be a part of this family. #triathlon

Clermont camp is a wrap.
The definition of basic. On to the fun stuff @islandhousetri #paininparadise #painbeforeparadise #givesyouwings #triathlon

Thanks to #epiccyclesworld here in Clermont for being everything I love about local shops this past week as I prep for @islandhousetri. I’ve had good chats, heat acclimation sessions using their awesome facilities, a couple delicious date shakes, and plenty of espresso, all from cool people who care. Amazon hasn’t won yet. Also, they sell @argon18bike 👍 #buylocal #localbusiness #paininparadise #argon18bike

Haven’t really felt like taking any pictures or video this trip. I’ve really been enjoying the moment, enjoying the training process, and not stressing about capturing it. It’ll come back at some point I expect, but nothing good ever comes from forcing things. Or so I’m learning. Full focus on @islandhousetri next week #paininparadise #fullsend #theprocess

Just under 2 weeks until @islandhousetri! That leaves about 5 days to put more work into my run. Stoked with how it’s going. #paininparadise

mixed feelings from Miyazaki. Blatantly dunked two strokes in, recovered, just missed the break, worked too hard on the bike, paid for it on the run. I felt really good through 5k on the run, but all that extra energy spent overcoming race conditions adds up. 📷 @tzaferes #miyazakiWC #worldtriathlon #triathlon

Still in Japan, but it’s getting harder and harder to hold back the excitement for @islandhousetri in three weeks. Super sprint is my favorite format and the field is going to be sick. #paininparadise #triathlon #swimbikerun #ltpendurance #triatlon #givesyouwings

Less than 1 week until round 2 in Miyazaki, Japan. And it’ll be Olympic distance 👍

Some positives today and some frustrations. A positive: I haven’t been able to sprint like this in a while. A few more miles and a little more energy conservation on the bike, and I’ll be able to spread that out over the whole 10k. 📷 @tzaferes #tongyeongWC #worldtriathlon #ltpendurance #swimbikerun

This was the most enjoyable conversation I’ve had in a long time, and exactly the kind of conversation I’ve always hoped to have in an interview, podcast, etc. All philosophy, mental approach, and good energy. I’m so stoked I got to meet Jess and BJ, and stoked that the whole thing got recorded. Not to get cheesy, but it totally gave me a little boost of energy for my goals and sharing what I love to do. The definition of “stoked” IMO. Link is in my bio, Check it out. And check out all their other rad talks.

Saw this shot in my mind while listening to this song by @lcdsoundsystem and @tc_reid captured the moment perfectly. Goodbye, San Diego. ✈️ Korea for #tongyeongwc

10x2' HAM hills was a pretty fitting break-in for the new kit. @lovethepain_official I need a #spintowin kit for tomorrow. #SENT #spent #lovethepain_official #givesyouwings #pocteam

Mid selfie I rolled over a bear trap. Or a shark tooth, can't be sure.

I'm really passionate about hydration.. Don't even get me started. #ironmantraining #ironmanfueling #ironmaneating
Actually, real talk for a minute, I just remembered a conversation I had with a dude in a bike shop the other day. He told me all about an athlete who told him how they didn't actually use a product they were endorsing. What the F. Don't accept money from companies that you don't believe in. It's complete BS. You're taking away opportunities from athletes who actually like/need that product and making it impossible for the rest of us to convince fans/consumers/peers that we're not full of shit. I love telling people point blank: I love Red Bull, I drink it during races and most hard workouts and the same goes for every other piece of equipment I use. Sacrificing integrity and honesty isn't worth the money.

Uber driver: how was the race?
"Bad"
He chuckles. "Not much hesitation there." All Southern Drawl.
I sigh. "No need to sugar coat it"
-That one was rough and I hate going slow. Every excuse under the moon; cancelled swim, sprint distance, suana-like conditions.. but it still comes down to the run for me. It's been my most frustrating journey, and it feels like two steps forward, one step back at times. Some days feeling incredible, fluid, fast, and some days like I belong more in the single-leg amputee race. I've got two weeks in San Diego to work on things before heading to Tongyeong, South Korea for another opportunity to show off the two steps forward part of the process. #theprocess #beautifulstruggle #travelday
