This ever smiling Hoosier native has settled at the base of the Wasatch Mountain Range (UT) where she has trained for and raced every distance, but was still striving for that first big podium. This year she broke out with strong performances in the Rev3...

It took me 4 days to physically recover from Chicago. I mean I was a wreck last week, but finally on Thursday I felt good enough to throttle the body a bit. The workout plan for the weekend included the traditional long brick. 2.5 hours...
