New Year's Resolutions

I’ve never been someone who does a lot of new years resolutions. I’m more of a proponent of constantly self assessing and asking myself, my coaches/managers/mentors, and my family/friends “how can I be better?” This constant search to find “better” is something that definitely translates into my quest for speed and high performance in triathlon.

That said, January 1 is always a good prompt to think about what you can do to create a better version of yourself. I am a little late (26 days, to be exact), but in that vein, I’m re-committing to sharing my journey with you – and all the lessons and stories along the way – more regularly this year. To get back on track, in this post, a summary of the 2 months in photos, including Adam's and my WEDDING (for wedding photo blog, click here!), Naples FL swim camp, holiday baking, and Team IE’s set up in Clermont FL this winter.

From wedding dress to swim suit in 48 hours! Open water swim camp was a bit of a shock to the system (now I get why people honeymoon right after their wedding!), but we wouldn't have it any other way (honeymoon plan is Japan..... timing/dates TBD!)

First date as a married couple! Training consumes the days (and works up an appetite), so great to have some one-one-one time with my better half (and bottomless tortilla chips on the side!)
