Thank-you LUNA!

Almost exactly eight years ago, with a two month-old baby girl at home I was offered my dream contract as an an athlete – to race with the LUNA Pro team. It was all the motivation I needed to get training and get back into the best shape of my life! Thank-you to Luna for believing in me, supporting my racing and helping me to come back stronger than ever into motherhood times two! It was the ride of a life time as an athlete for seven years on the Luna Pro Team and one year as Luna Chix Sponsored athlete. I am grateful to have had the opportunity to compete at the level I have for as long as I have, and am especially proud to have worked with and represented such a progressive and incredible company as Clif Bar and Luna in this last racing chapter.

As I look back I have no regrets. I’m thankful for the years I had to put into life and racing challenges as a runner on the track, as a cross-country mountain bike racer, and finally as an Xterra off-road triathlon racer. More importantly I’ve met and made so many incredible friends that will last way beyond the next race. I look forward to lots of play in 2016 and maybe the occasional race purely for fun!

One of the few times an Xterra run felt almost effortless on my way to 2nd place at the 2008 World Championships
