Ironman70.3 Indian Wells La Quinta | Swim Recap

What a crazy weekend. We are just settling back into our place in Los Angeles and I am both highly caffeinated and exhausted at the same time. This past weekend, I raced my first half Ironman race, which is 70.3 miles consisting of a 1.2 mile swim, 56 miles on the bike, and finished with […]

Three Awesome Swim Workouts | Triathlon Training
