Sponsor-A-Mile: 70.3 World Championships in St. George, Utah


It is almost time for the BIG ONE!  The race that I have been fundraising for and working towards since November of last year: the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championships in St. George, Utah!  As an Ironman Foundation Ambassador, all of my Ironman brand races have me RACING FOR MORE, but this one is the pinnacle.  I am proud to be representing IMF and all of the good that can come from their initiatives.  With that in mind, I am asking you to sponsor a mile during this race.  

For each of my IRONMAN races this year, I have taken your inspiration and printed it on tattoo paper to put on my arms and legs so that I can see it while I am riding and running.  When the going gets tough, these notes remind me that I am doing the race for more than myself!  

Will you consider sponsoring a mile to help MAKE AN IMPACT and leave a quote or advice to inspire me during 70.3 St. George on October 28, 2022?

Here is how:
1.  Choose the mile(s) you'd like to sponsor below.

Add your name and any note (a quote, mantra, memory) that you want me to have for that mile right in this spreadsheet.  I will be printing this list on tattoo paper on October 22nd to put on my arms and legs for me to be able to see them during my race.  
*if you have technical difficulties editing the spreadsheet, just comment below or email me and I will add it for you.

2.  Head to to donate the corresponding amount.  (If you sponsor Run Mile 10 - it is $10)

3. Watch for updates on October 28th and after to see how your inspiration got me to the finish line!

Things to know about the 2022 IRONMAN 70.3 St. George Course and when I will need the MOST inspiration:


There is only 1 mile to sponsor on the swim, make sure you give me an easy-to-repeat mantra ;-)  I often sing to myself when I'm swimming - so a song will work, too!  


Miles 41-47 will be the most difficult climb, so these are great miles to sponsor!!  The is also a bit of a climb (short and snappy) about mile 8.  I will need lots of inspiration for both.  For the 9 miles after the main climb, it is downhill and fast... which scares me to death!!!  Feel free to give me messages to keep my mind off the speed for those miles!!


You already know that the run will be my weakness of the day and it will likely be very hot on this run.  Thankfully they have altered the route a bit so that there is not a ton of elevation gain, but as you can see from the elevation map, we start uphill and then go back to that hill for a 2nd loop.  Miles 1-3 and 6-9 will be the toughest for me.  I have run the bridge a ton, but that does not compare to up for 3 miles at a time...  yikes!

Race Report: IM70.3 World Championships (St. George, UT) 2022

  Shortly after racing IM70.3 North Carolina in 2021 as part of Team IMF (IRONMAN Foundation), I got a phone call from one of the Foundation staff members asking if I wanted to represent the Foundation in St. George at the IM70.3 World Championships in 2022.  Having raced IM World Championship in Kona in a Charily Spot (for Women for Tri in 2016), I was excited about the prospect, but a little nervous that I could still fundraise at that level.  The fundraising commitment for the 70.3 World Championships is $15,000 and I would have 10 months to get it done.   Before I can tell you about the race and race week, I need to say THANK YOU!!!!  As a community, we raised over $17,500 for the Ironman Foundation ! Whether you donated directly, sponsored or participated in my indoor triathlon, participated in my Top in Topsail Raffle, or Sponsored a Mile for one of my many races - THANK YOU!!!  I would not have been able to get to this start line without your generosity!  Your donations are bei

2022 White Lake Fall International Aquabike Race Report

  Pre-Race This was my third time racing at White Lake, but my first time in the fall and my first time doing it as an Aquabike.  Since it is only 1.5 hours from the house, I just drive over the morning of the event and have plenty of time to get set up and get my goals posted.  Here is what I posted this time:  I posted 3 goals, two that were time goals, because that is what I always do... but I wasn't totally transparent in the post.  I was doing this Aquabike race with ONE MISSION and that mission was to WIN! Earlier this year, I did my first Aquabike at the  Crystal Coast Half Booty  because a half marathon run was not smart that close to IM70.3 Virginia Blue Ridge, but I really wanted to do the race.  While the finish line experience for Aquabike is still not the same as triathlon, it planted a bug in my brain since I am strongest at swimming and biking and I won that race.  After chatting with friends that have been to WTC World's and stalking the USAT rankings , I knew
