Pan Am Championships 2015

The thud in my left hip. That is what I'm waiting for. While I'm spinning on the rollers early in the morning, with my down vest and Team USA stocking cap on, my first goal of the day, before racing even gets started, is putting my hip back where it belongs, so that left leg … Continue reading Pan Am Championships 2015

Starting, again. Again. Again.

When we sat down and looked at the selection criteria, trying to come up with a plan for the remainder of the season, July 31st became the deadline. We had our fingers crossed, maybe I could race in T-town at the end of June (no). Or maybe in Japan in early July (no). Or maybe … Continue reading Starting, again. Again. Again.

Time.

I've always opened up on the emotional side of things, versus the traditional posts from others. It's vulnerable and hard, but its a look at how the last few weeks have been. I'm very thankful for every person that has come to my side during this time. I will forever be indebted. I am on … Continue reading Time.

Haters Gonna Hate. And We’re Just Gonna Potate.

Facebook. Instagram. Twitter. Blogs. Websites. Snapchat. Messengers...blah blah blah... Social media. Online Bullying. And haters. Everyday, we put ourselves out there in the hands of someone, anyone, who can say whatever they want. Whether we are changing the color of our hair, or celebrating a goal we've accomplished, someone always has something to say to … Continue reading Haters Gonna Hate. And We’re Just Gonna Potate.

46,707 Miles of 2014

Twenty-fourteen. Tomorrow it's in the past, and a new year is before us. I'll continue writing "2014" on all my rent checks, probably until about May, once again. And damn, the Rio Games are just over a year away...EEEKKK. When I look back at what I've done this year, man...it's been pretty unbelievable. Take this … Continue reading 46,707 Miles of 2014

Stepping down from World Cup I and the 2014 Los Angeles Grand Prix

To start things off, I'd like to nip a couple of things in the butt. I'd like to address the numerous questions I've been asked regarding the world cup team that was selected for the first round of UCI track world cups in Guadalajara Mexico. I realize no announcement was made from USA Cycling on … Continue reading Stepping down from World Cup I and the 2014 Los Angeles Grand Prix

2014 US Elite Track National Championships Recap

This elite national championships was the first "big event", I haven't been 100% prepared for. Physically, I'm not tapered like many of the other athletes. With the 2014 Pan Am Continental Track Championships taking place in just a few weeks, we've taken the approach to prepare completely for that event, being the first Olympic Qualifying … Continue reading 2014 US Elite Track National Championships Recap

Building…Let’s Go.

After a very successful last few weeks of eating, I woke up the other morning realizing that fruit and vegetables are in fact part of the food pyramid, and depending how I'd like to look in my XS speed suit, it would probably be wise for me to start incorporating them in my diet. Since … Continue reading Building…Let’s Go.

Beef, Broccoli, and Brownies: US Elite Timed National Championships

The best part about staying in a host house is having the ability to cook. Completely controlling what you are eating, and not having to worry about a thing. I was lucky enough to find a host house where we ended up house sitting a cat, (which is one of the easiest things I have … Continue reading Beef, Broccoli, and Brownies: US Elite Timed National Championships
