Bob Firman race! Got off in a good position right with Jess and Caroline. I stuck with them for the first mile and a half then fell off a bit. The first lap was pretty good, then the real challenge came. The pain hit and I told myself it was good but didn't convince myself enough to push harder. I tried, but not enough. I was positive, but still had nagging negatives. When Ellie came up I pushed but didn't stay with her or Alli. Negatives/will overcome next race- didn't push up hill well, finished last 200, not 800. The positives were I pushed and passed after the beach and same with the downhill. I got into good position to start and stayed with Jess and Caroline longer! Also Pr'd by 15 sec from last year's bob firman time, and 3 seconds for a 5k! Great but still I still have much more to do and our team does too! 50 min//6 mi

Heel hurt really bad so my cool down was super chill, gonna need to get back into a routine of icing


Loved this trip so so much and am gonna miss it! Learned that Roberts has some good 80s music, Alli has a sassy side haha, Jessica looks like Brad Pitt and so much more haha. PVXC RULES

The mental embrace of the pain is a key component. Every training session you hold your hand over the fire so the mental ability to embrace the pain and also rise above the pain is stronger.
