Fun-running a 10k this morning as part of the @kcmarathon - loved addressing the crowd before the start 📢. It’s been a quick trip in Kansas City - jetting back to LA this afternoon - but brunch first 💁🏼♀️! Thanks @garmin for having me ❤️ #kansascity #misouri #10k #marathon
Back with some bodywork and strength with Dr Mike @mikegiuntapt - even just missing out on these sessions while I was in Hawaii for 10days I felt the difference in my body - glad to be back on track! 💪🏻 @evolutionptfit @trifitla @garmin #strength #strong #triathlon

Getting stronger every week 💪🏻 Huge thanks 👏🏼 to @mikegiuntapt (owner of @evolutionptfit ) who’s been working on my bod and kicking my butt in the gym the whole way through this injury. If these injuries have taught me anything it’s the importance of strength-work! Excited to see the gains when I’m back to full fitness 👊🏻 #training #ironman #triathlon #athlete #strength #strengthtraining #gym #strong #strongwomen #strongnotskinny #la #losangeles #santamonica
