Never done this before but there’s a first time for everything: I present to you (most of) my 2023 race schedule!
In the past I would have been scared of announcing races and jinxing myself (especially after the fiasco that was my life in 2022 😅). However, I have seen manifestations work more than jinxes so I am seeing this as me manifesting that I WILL be at these races and putting myself in a position to succeed 🙌 (but still recognizing the need to put in the hard work that it will take to get there).
Excited to be trying out some new adventures this year, like @goldentrailseries , and still looking to possibly add a few more road & trail races into May and July (like @cirqueseries 😻) but that will depend on how the bod feels (leaving room for cream, just like @meg_runs_happy says! 👌).
*These races pending on qualification*
S/o to my sponsors for supporting this fun year, buckle up! @saucony@insidetracker@ultimatedirectionusa@corosglobal
Will you be an any of these races? If so, make sure to say hi! 👋
Being a professional athlete and then dating a professional athlete in a totally different sport can be challenging at times. Living apart for most of the year and trying to coordinate racing and training schedules is no easy task.
But I am proud of us for making it work and it gives us the opportunity to go on some pretty amazing adventures that we might not otherwise be able to, like spending an extra week in Switzerland after @logandiekmann raced!
We got to spend a week skiing, hot tubbing, and eating our way through the alps. And for all the nights apart, the days like this and the chance to support each other chasing our dreams makes it all worth it. ❤️
…and now for the good news!
I’m thrilled to announce that I have partnered with @goneforarun for an upgraded online shopping experience for this year’s 2023 Training Log + Planner!
The 2023 edition is expected to be in stock in the next few days so head over to the link in my bio to sign up to be notified as soon as items are in stock. Can’t wait to get these out to everyone (and hopefully with much fewer shipping delays than last year 😅🙏). This year we will also have a few in-person store locations around the country carrying the TL+P so stay tuned for that 👀
And make sure to give @rg_traininglogs a follow!

Last little workout before World Champs starts next week! Hopped on the track for a little injection of some turnover before we climb (and climb and climb) in our races next week.
Team USA has athletes in the Vertical, 40k, 80k, and classic race distances so be sure to cheer and send your fastest vibes to everyone all of next week. I’ll be racing both the vertical and classic distances. The festivities begin on Wednesday with the vertical race! 🇺🇸

So, Austria is alright 😍🇦🇹
VK course scout today with @rachrunsworld , it’s going to be a steep lung burner but worth it for the gorgeous views! 🤌
VK World Championship race is this coming Wednesday so be sure to send your fastest vibes 🙏
We are only 12 days out (*gulp*) from the VK (vertical kilometer) which will be my first race at World Champs. So of course had to get the legs turning over because flat speed = climbing speed 💪 (but did it on dirt and with mountain view’s to stay on brand, obvi)
Can you guess the pace that I got the ol’ mountain legs turning over for?

Decked out in red, white, and blue 🇺🇸 and fueled up on @bpnsupps = ready to head to the Mountain Running World Championships to represent Team USA. 💪
Representing your country on the international stage is one of the biggest honors an athlete can have in their career so it’s pretty cool to do that while also being supported by a Veteran (@nickbarefitness ) led company.
If you’ve been looking for great tasting electrolytes, long run fuel, protein, or BCAAs look no further. 🤤

Am I obsessed with my Team USA sprint unitard? ✨Yes✨
Am I a sprinter? Not even a little bit 😅
Am I going to wear this thing to the World Mtn Running Championships to run up a mountain? Absolutely 💅🏼
The real question is, should I wear it for the VK or classic race? 🧐

What I say to myself whilst climbing 5000’ in 5 miles and feeling like I’m going to die 🥵🥴🤢🤮
Mountain races really are fun though (most of the time). 10/10 would recommend you try one if you haven’t already!

➡️Before: Mentally preparing for 25 solo laps on the track.😵💫 Tighten the pony time to get to work.
➡️During: this isn’t so bad. One lap at a time.🧘♀️
➡️After: hit all the splits. Omg who even is she??? Is she a runner? Is she a track star? 💅🏼💅🏼💅🏼
(Not competing on the track this year but it’s fun to still go fast in the middle of 🏔️ training).

If you guessed trail race, you are correct! ✅
Been running down this dream of returning to US Mtn champs for 2 years. Last year I was down and out with an injury, so very happy to be back this year and coming away from the weekend with 2 more national titles. 🏔️🏃♀️
