  • Comments: With my 16th place AG finish I earned a spot with Team USA for the World Championships in Edmonton in 2014...so that's exciting. I know there are minutes to shave from my performance in the race. Will go back next year and likely race just the Sprint to see if I can qualify for the 2015 WC in Chicago. It will be a strong field as lots of athletes will want the Chicago spots. Still plenty of work to do but overall a successful weekend.

  • Comments: I would encourage anyone who qualifies for Nationals to go - the weekend in Milwaukee was just fabulous! I met Chrissie Wellington as soon as we got to the expo and then we got to sit with her at dinner that night. She is just the sweetest, most down to earth person you could ask for - love her! It was AMAZING how we were treated - I felt like an elite athlete the entire weekend and I cannot rave about this race enough. It was definitely one of the best trips of my life!!!!

  • Comments: The race was REALLY well run and I'll definitely be back next year for some redemption. And there will never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever again be a bottle of wine the night before a race. :)
