Boulder Bound

I've just arrived in Boulder for another summer of training, my third summer in a row here. The quiet roads leading out of town, the long mountain climbs and the endless running trails make it my absolute favorite place to train in the summer. It's become a sort of second home to me with lots of great friends and training partners, and a pretty fun place to be in the summer.

I had a great last three month training block in San Diego with my bff Rebecca Preston who came over from Australia to get ready for IM Texas. We did a lot of great bike training in those three months which made up for my low run mileage due to a hamstring strain. Thankfully, my hamstring has now come around again, and I'm back to building up my run base to catch up with my bike fitness.

First up on my agenda upon arriving in Boulder today was to get my bike fit checked by Mat Steinmetz on my new Cervelo P3. I also switched saddles this year to the ISM Attack which I love, and so a bit of fine tuning to my bike fit was due. Also in the photos below is my new training/race kit for 2015. Thanks Wattie Ink!

I'm excited for a great summer of training in Boulder and the start of my race season next month. More to come on that soon!
