Hello 2016


Hello world!!

2015 was an exciting year for us. We decided we want to do an Iron Man 140.6 together, and start a blog to record our journey (and maybe get some support :))

Our joint goals for 2016 are to race our first ever (!) triathlon during the summer, and our first Olympic-distance triathlon during the fall.

Thanks for joining us, hope you enjoy!!

 


Day’s 2015

This is the year I found my passion for long distance road cycling, and completed my first Century in September. I am not a routine person, so I made sure that every single one of my 40+ mile rides was in a different town, city, or state. Every ride was an adventure, every turn something new to discover and explore.

The weekend after the Century I rode the Pine Creek Trail on my commuter bike, completing 136 miles over two days. Three weeks later, I traveled to Italy and rode 120 miles down the coast of Tuscany (from La Spezia to Piombino), visiting Pisa and Bolgheri on the way. Needless to say, it was an awesome riding year.

At the end of November, I had bunion surgery on my right foot. My only focus now (until about April) is to heal and learn to walk again.

2015 was an incredible cycling year. I'm most proud of • Metric Century at 15.5 mph average (/\ 2,360ft) • My first 80 mile training ride • My first Century • Riding 120 miles down the coast of Tuscany 🇮🇹 Next year is bound to be exciting, my heart is set on becoming a triathlete, but first I have to learn to walk again after my foot surgery. Bring it on 2016! __________________________________ 🚴🏽 #2015bestnine #bestnine #cycling #cyclechick #cyclelikeagirl #outsideisfree #roadslikethese #bucketlist #bucketlistcheck #resolution #goals #youvsyou #madebymiles #trilife #triathlete #roadtoironman #swimbikerun #fitfam #training #fitforlife #2016 #fitness #recovery #footsurgery #newyearresolution #triathlon #triathlontraining #bikeporn #ridecannondale #bikeoclock __________________________________ @machinesforfreedom @fizikofficial @ridecannondale @sugoiapparel @pearlizumiofficial @garneausports @iamspecialized @rapha_n_america @tifosioptics

Bruno’s 2015

I started the year with a hamstring injury that took me off the roads for 6 weeks. But I still managed to get 850 miles in and accomplished some good firsts

  • first marathon
  • first sub-6 mile
  • first sub-19 5k (18:31 FTW)
  • first time placing in a race
  • first pair of Newtons (love at first run) #HelloBetter

I feel I’m in the best shape I’ve ever been and getting faster and stronger every day.

Still, work got in the way towards the end of the fall. I had to interrupt my training and cancel what was supposed to be my second marathon and first Boston qualifying attempt. So, that is my starting goal for 2016, I’ll give it a go at the Pittsburgh Marathon and, if that doesn’t work, I’ll try one of the fast September ones.
