a little update

McKenzie Pass 2016


"I can't believe it's August already" - shit girls say

But really, I can't. I'd love to say it's been a great summer so far, but it's honestly been a tough one. Just as I was hopeful that things were starting to pick up again, I got another doozy. I'll "cut" to the chase (there is a pun there...wait for it.) I have a pretty large cyst that needs to be removed with a minor surgery. As it is in the 'saddle region'- no cycling for 4 to 6 weeks. Just under 10 weeks out from Kona, that's a deal-breaker for me, especially on top of all the other things I have going on right now. So, although I accepted a July qualification spot, I am returning that slot to another deserving woman.
Yes, this is a big disappointment for me, but I am trying to remind myself that I still have an amazing husband, daughter, family and friends and that life will go on.

In the meantime, I'm doing my best to make sure that Luke is ready for his big day on the big island in October (and 70.3 world champs in September). We are currently stationed up in Bend, OR for the month of August for training camp, and although I won't be riding with Luke, I plan to be chief run buddy, strength coach, and swim motivator (once I am allowed back in the water).

I did get to enjoy one lovely (though slightly uncomfortable) week on the bike here in Bend and ticked off all the old favorites including Mt. Bachelor and McKenzie Pass. I guess now there is more time for river floating with coolers of beer, right ;) ?

Beth, I'm so sorry to hear about your circumstances regarding Kona. I wish you a very speedy recovery.

So sorry to read this Betty Sister! Speedy recovery with your surgery. You'll be back to fight another day. Look forward to still seeing you in Kona I hope. X

I can't imagine the disappointment Beth- but you seem to be handling it so well. Glad you're up in Bend (what a beautiful place) and can be the run, swim, strength coach and PARTNER for Luke. Not to mention all the extra mommy time you'll have- just priceless. Sending love and healing.

Such sad news, I was looking forward to cheering for you in Kona! All the best with your recovery and next season

I've just had a cyst from the "saddle region" cut out yesterday. I do appreciate the painful cycling feeling you're talking about. I'm 15 weeks out from my first 70.3. The plan at this stage is to still compete but I'm not sure how long I'll be off the bike. I'll make the call in a few weeks I guess. I'm sorry you're going to miss Kona Beth. I saw you speak up at Noosa on the multisport festival weekend two-ish months ago - it was great to hear yourself and Luke talk about your busy lives as parents and athletes. Hope you heal quickly.
