Springbrook Sprint 

      Springbrook Sprint Triathlon was one great way to start off my triathlon season while celebrating Memorial Day with great friends. I have had several weeks of great training leading up to starting my triathlon season, and Springbrook is always a great race to test the fitness and find what needs to be focused on throughout the next training blocks. As race day approached, I was ready to get back into racing but was unsure of how the race would play out. The swim was super short, and I felt great going into the bike. The bike portion was great overall, while my run was decent for the start of the season. Overall, I was excited to finish with the top female spot. I am glad to have the first race behind me, and I am ready to see what this triathlon season has in store for me over the next few months. I could not be more thankful to all those that directed the race, volunteered, or spent the morning racing; you all are awesome. A big thank you to Dr. Sprouse, Podium Racing, our team sponsors, and all that continue to support me in my efforts; I am truly blessed.
