Quassy Olympic – June 1

Pre-Race: Quassy had been on my schedule all season long for numerous reasons. First, it would be three weeks before Syracuse, and offered a similar course profile (albeit shorter). Second, I really wanted to do a Revolution 3 race after hearing such great things about their company. Third, it was an official Wattie Ink East Coast event; Heather Jackson would be racing, which meant Wattie would be in attendance, and I couldn’t turn down an opportunity to meet them both, as well as a number of my teammates, especially at a race only a few hours away by car.

I drove up to Connecticut on Thursday, and then Friday went over to the course and got checked in, drove the bike course, and racked my bike. The course was rolling hills and climbs and descents, and I was excited about it as a chance to really push my competitors. I got a chance to briefly meet 2 teammates, Dave & Chris, and then went back to Danbury to have dinner and rest.

In the morning I drove over, finalized my bike prep, and then headed down to the swim start. I jumped in the water to quickly check the temperature and get a brief warmup in, and then got to the front of my group for when they called us.

The Week That Was – Ending 04/28, 05/05, 05/12, 05/19


It’s finally race season, and the video above accurately depicts how fucking stoked I feel about it! With two races under my belt since my last update, I suppose it’s time that I update this thing again. So, what’s the excuse this time? Well, lack of time, I suppose. [insert long paragraph here about all of my time¬†commitments]. Regardless, I need to get back on the weekly grind of doing this. Some of the highlights of the past couple of weeks include:

  • Two races,¬†two podiums
  • Winning a cash prize at one race
  • Getting to race in my Wattie Ink. kit for the first time
  • Throwing down some nasty swim and run PRs
  • Receiving my Blueseventy Helix wetsuit just in time for my first race (see above)
  • Seeing my BFFs in Worcester and seeing HCMR race well at Eastern Sprints
  • Seeing my brother’s last collegiate race in Philly
  • Starting GMAT prep classes (Austin here I come!)
  • having a work assignment be “order a giant ass check”
  • getting told I need to re-test FTP

On to the numbers…
