Tell us about your road to the Big Island--the good, the bad, and the ugly!:)
I had hoped to race Kona in 2018 as my last attempt at a good race on the Big Island. That goal was sidelined when I was hit by a car on a training ride. Most of my season was over, but Alyssa (Godesky- Coach) helped me get ready for IMMD in just 10 weeks. The stars aligned that day and I had a solid race and was able to punch my ticket to Kona. Needless to say, I am very grateful to be racing and hoping that the third time is a charm :)
What are your goals for race day? I really just want to execute the type of race I feel like I am capable of. Alyssa has helped me so much and I feel like I am ready for a breakthrough performance here. It’s easy to get caught up in chasing podiums, but I will be happy if I can put together a race that I feel is great for me!
What will you be wearing out there in the lava fields?
I will be wearing the new Tie Dye kit with aero top and 5" tri shorts!
