Nie mam pojęcia jak to się stało i nadal trochę mi trudno uwierzyć, ale w debiucie na połówce w #triathlonborówno udało się wykręcić 5:31, co dało 8 miejsce wśród kobiet i 3 w kategorii. Pływanie jak zwykle, rower starałam się pojechać mniej siłowo, a półmaraton pofrunęłam jak na mnie bardzo szybko, może to pogoda, może odżywianie, ale najpewniej trening w końcu "wszedł". Także, jak kocham siebie na codzień miłością odwzajemnioną(co by nie zwariować), tak dzisiaj jestem zachwycona 🦄 wsparcie nieocenione i fot. jak zwykle @olekurbanski_insta #triathlon#tri#trigirl#halfironman#swim#bike#run#cycling#competition#running#obey#trek
Flight of the goses to celebrate overcoming my demons today. Today's race was ugly and painful but I got the damn thing done. The hills were disrespectful. The heat came from Satan himself. I considered giving up more times than I can count. But I didn't. I kept going, kept moving, and crossed that finish line. One of the highlights of the race was seeing one of the Team Triumph athletes in a chariot during the run smiling from ear to ear and cheering everyone on. His smile and enthusiasm we're infectious, it brought me to tears but overwhelmed my spirit with joy. Congrats to all the #MiTi finishers today, those were some rough conditions out there on the course.

This week 4 time World Champion Chris McCormack joins us to discuss the role that weight played throughout his career. We discussed his obsession with weight during his career and how he has struggled with it after retiring.
MACCA talked about how he would manage his weight around big races and gives a number of tips on the role your weight plays when racing and how to bring it down for events.
We also have some entries to give away to the Port of Tauranga Half in January. If you want to go into the draw simply like the Think Fit Pod page and like and share this post.
Humans are strange. Some of them can stop and empathize with a tiny plant growing out of a crack in a sidewalk. While others are capable of such horrible things.
I'm happy that the human in this picture is one that can empathize with the little plant, and can find beauty and joy in things that most people overlook. @claudiimeyer
5 years ago I raced my first triathlon, the Bluff Creek Sprint. It was a local race, with a mix of first timers and triathlon veterans, with an awesome community vibe. I couldn't have asked for a better entry into the sport. .
Today I got to return to Bluff Creek for a collegiate race to find that nothing has changed... People of all skill levels cracking jokes in transition and cheering each other on, everyone was in a good mood even though rain caused a last minute change from Olympic to sprint distance. There was even a FREE SNOWCONE TRUCK!
It's been fun to race some bigger races this season with thousands of competitors, and prize money and swag, but you just cannot beat the local race vibes and sense of community you get at Bluff Creek. Triathlon grows from local races, and today was a good reminder why! #racelocal
Shoutout to @mdubrick7 for making the drive, I finally had a Mizzou teammate at a collegiate conference race!
A little Instagram success story right here. 👆😂🙌 @runningwithstrength and I were just casual friends on IG when we figured out that both of our husbands were being stationed at WPAFB. We'd be moving in within a month and a mile of each other. So we texted a little bit and planned on meeting up for a long run that first weekend I arrived. It was either going to be awkward or awesome, right? I'll sum that up by saying we gave Kindal a key to our house a few weeks later. 👯 You've seen glimpses of this past year that we spent training and racing together. That was all SO much fun!!! I mean, it's pretty lucky to have a BFF with your same training paces and race plans. And you definitely get to know a person during hundreds of shared miles. But what these squares haven't shown is the life stuff that really counts. It extends far beyond any "training bestie" status.
The late nights spent talking and laughing on the couch (or my bed... sorry Matt 😂). Trick-or-treating on Halloween. Sharing Christmas dinner. Babysitting for a Valentine's date. Building Legos and playing princesses. Leaving a note and flowers on my counter when I returned from the funeral of a loved one. Lending helping hands at birthday parties. Bonding over our common hatred of cold temps and gray skies. Feeding our cat every time we left town. Doing preschool drop-off when I had appointments. Going on racecations to Boston, Arizona, Florida, and California, or just little adventures to the zoo or the lake. Supporting my kids at swimming lessons and a ballet recital. Showing up with gifts or treats for the littles just because. Lending a listening ear. Cheering each other on from day to day, pushing one another, and celebrating each other's victories.
This past year has been HARD for many different reasons, and being so far away from my family has made it all the more difficult. Let's just say, if there was ever a need for a Kindal, it was now. I really feel like we were meant to have each other here. She has been SO much more than a training partner or best friend. "Auntie Kindal" has been *family* during a time when we needed it most. We'll love her forever for it!
