Trail Running in Calgary

Where to run?!!!!


It has been almost 2 months since my last race.  Off season consisted of six weeks of recovery and preparing myself for the new season.  As many triathletes know, having time off from training is kind of the worst.  Sure, lounging around is nice for a couple days but after that the itch to work out starts to creep back.  Way back in the day when I was a young, fresh faced college kid, unaware of just how exhausting adulting is, I competed in x-country running.  With knees that were unaffected by the weather and ankles that didn’t constantly crack I was able to effortlessly run through various terrain, storming up hills and gliding down them. Oh to be young.

Dreaming of, Travelling to, Racing in...... Rotterdam!

Rainy Rotterdam. We arrived in rain, we left in rain. Miraculously, the only day that it wasn't raining was race day.

A PNW (Pacific North West) girl at heart, this didn't dampen – excuse the pun – the mood.


This being my first world championship event I wasn't quite prepared for all the people and the set up. It was really a race week, rather than just a race weekend, or day. On arrival in Rotterdam, we saw ITU flags everywhere, and as race day drew closer there were more and more people donning their country flags on various articles of clothing. At the race venue itself, the transition zones and the expo, the energy and excitement was palpable.


Feeling very new to international racing I decided to go in with an open heart and mind, and just soak it all in.
