Hey @raceoc racers!! Joy and I went to check out the Dirt for you! We actually went to Black Star but  is close enough 😜 Dirt is good! Perfect race weather, 60 F and overcast! I had a rain coat to come down, you won’t need that but for sure bring a bag with dry warm clothes for afterwards! I’ll have hot chocolate at the @projectbikelove tent!! Join the Tuesday Party!!!! #projectbikelove #californiaparaguayangirl #mountainlover #raceoc #rnrwayoflife #iamspecialized #ctsathlete

Couldn’t avoid the ☔️ today, it was even raining in London during my zwift ride.  #rainraingoaway #gozwift #cycling #noexcuses
I forgot how much fun it is to race with friends!!!

Yesterday was a good day. 1st in AG and 5th Female at the Ventura Sprint Triathlon. More importantly, my numbers were pretty spot on to expectation. Close enough to the overall ladies to taste something better, but clearly see where I can continue to work. (Please excuse the 🦖 arms in pic 3)

@bakersfield_trispokes going 4 for 5 AG podiums across the Sprint and Olympic race. Not too bad!

Definitely not where I would normally want to be just 100 meters into a 230 km road ultramarathon: way ahead in first place. After a bit of back and forth with two other guys until the first aid station at 30km however, I never looked back and took overall first place in 24:15 hours at the TorTour de Ruhr race (Germany), two hours ahead of the runner-up and beating the previous course record of this 10 year old event by 75 minutes. Apart from a few low points everything just clicked. #ttdr2018 #tortourderuhr #ttdr230 📷 @travelasfarasican

Seven soggy hours later...the Pisgah 55.5k turned into a 50 miler, but thanks to pockets full of snacks and the lightning forcing me to go faster I survived (my brake pads didn’t) 🚲🌧🎉 #sorrybike #pisgahproductions #jaking #ctsathlete

#sobersunday I haven’t had a drink in 2182 days!  God willing, on May 30 I will have 6 years of sobriety. Today I was blessed to have my family join me at the Chief Wetona Trail Challenge as I sported bib #6 to celebrate that 6 years. They have been instrumental in my recovery. Grateful to be surrounded by my family and my trail family who have been an amazing source of support. Have to say the family looks rather dapper in their @herrenproject gear!  #family #familyfuntime #thpruns #thprunsambassador #onepersononefamily #soberwarrior #soberrunner #runningconnectsus #runningcommunity #sobercommunity #ultrarunner #trailrunning #hokaoneone #getoutside #runhappy #runfree #nathanhydration #runforfun #runforlife #runningsober #runningtime #trailrunner #marathoner #wedorecover #recoveryisworthit #ctsathlete #veteran #mywifeisaveterantoo

Get into the groove or supine pigeon! Feels so good.... What I’m learning this weekend is yoga for everyone, literally everyone. For the flexible peeps, it helps you go deeper into your asanas. For those of you who think you never could do yoga, there are lots of supportive tools to help you through your class. Treat yourself, take care of you & give yourself some love.

@amgentoc 2018 is a wrap! The best part about this job is meeting such amazing people!

Missão Haute Route Asheville concluída com sucesso! Diferente de ontem, hoje tive um dia excelente e me surpreendi com um 4º lugar! Queria agradecer ao meu treinador @colinizzard que garantiu a diversão e a velocidade do nosso pelotão!
Foram os últimos dois dias de uma semana de endurance, com mais de 20h de pedal e muita “Z3” (aquele ritmo perto/abaixo do limiar). Arrasta a tela pra ver o vídeo que fiz na chegada 😊👉🏼
.
Mission @hauteroute_na Asheville accomplished successfully. Today ended up the opposite of yesterday, and surprised myself with a 4th place os a packed women’s field. Thank you Colin and @cts_trainright crew and riders for making today such a fun fast painful and enjoyable day. These were the last two days of an endurance week with 20+ hours on the bike - I am very happy to have earned a couple of recovery days 😁

I am a proud Californian and a #ctsathlete. This week at the @amgentocwomen has been a crazy circus of little sleep transferring from city to city and working with #amgenbreakaway (@breakawaycancer and @breakawayfromheartdisease) but it is all worth it. #whatsworthit 🚴🏼‍♀️ ❤️ 👩🏼‍🔬 📷 @cts_trainright

I’m so honored to be in this Restorative teacher training this weekend. In a classroom among other teachers in our community both near and far. 
I’ll have lots to share with my one on one private students, new tools added to the toolbox. This training will also be added to my regular classes as well.

Tonight’s easy run brought to you by all the sweat, Jumangi, and the @woodwaytreadmills ! Folks at the gym always walk by and get all weird... 🤷🏼‍♀️.

In fairness, I swam open (super salty) water first and that never seems to help. .

Thanks @pjuractive for bringing me into their ambassador fold this past month. If you haven’t checked out their 2nd skin anti chaf - You absolutely should! Nothing works better to keep your neck - wetsuit and work appropriate. Ie- no wetsuit hickies.

The how. Sort of.
. .
.
3.5 years into my journey and I forget that many of my “see them every day” friends and social media followers never knew “big Abby.” As a result, many folks have the immediate reaction of “but how?” My honest answer… it all began with one thing. Not exercise. Not diet. Not a how moment. But a when. Or just simply BEING READY. Said another way, YOU have to be ready. 100% committed. The journey isn’t easy and it’s never temporary. It helps being tired of being fat and tired, but for it to last… the desire for change has to be rooted from deep within you. .
.
.
I knew my life needed change for many years prior to October 6, 2014. How do I know the specific date? Because it was the moment everything changed.
.
.
.
A month prior, I had told myself my relocation to California would be the change I needed to break the bad habits. My 30th birthday was looming, so I decided I’d find a personal trainer, eat healthy, limit the wine. You know, lose the weight. And I was doing all of those things. Sort of. It wasn’t until my 2nd trip to Las Vegas ‪in 30 days‬ followed by a visit to the trainer that EVERYTHING changed.
.
.
.
That Monday (‪Oct 6th‬ to be exact), @pangsanity.personaltraining so kindly told me we would doing check in measurements. Well, not only was it “that time of the month” but I had literally just driven in from Vegas. 😡 I of course objected, but seeing as we were 30 days into personal training, he insisted. You probably know how this goes, but I had GAINED weight! Shocker… I was going to training sessions, but then ditching my cardio for Thirsty Thursday. I was shoving Taco Hell in my mouth ‪at 2 am‬ and sleeping through my Sundays. My “healthy lunch” was served with a side of office donuts. That day, those +2 lbs and tipping the scale over 200, I left the gym in tears THAT was it. My 100% commitment found me, not the other way around. .

#tbt The weather was brutal at the Florida Half Triathlon. It was a good lesson in focusing on what you CAN control.  Best of luck to those competing this weekend in Tri-Miami focus on what you can control and you will have a great race. #racehappy #multiraceteam #triathlon

Quad Rock 25 not only took me on a tour along the northeastern edges of Colorado’s Rocky Mountains, but it delivered a unique and rewarding trail racing experience on a challenging and scenic course.
.
It was rainy and cold, muddy and slippery, tough and painful at times, yet all I could do was smile. Why? Because when you show up for your goals, you have a reason to be happy and excited . . . and for me, it’s all about that smile. So you begin with one foot forward, one deep breath, again and again . . . and you keep going. Fulfilled and hungry for more!
.
I am also very happy and excited to be joining @spring_energy as an ambassador, and be part of the #SpringTribe! Driven by science, equipped with vast athletic experience, and inspired by passion for an active and healthy lifestyle, Spring Energy offers a line of nutrition products for endurance athletes.

Bike rides, races, and events pull us together for many reasons. This week, it’s all for these chefs at @chefscycle & @nokidhungry. We’ve already raised $1.4m, which will benefit more children than any one of us could do alone. But the other big impact is seeing nearly 300 chefs step out of their kitchens, riding bikes for 3 days, and connecting in ways that only a bike can do. Love being a part of something this big, thank you @jeffmahin & @adelenelson.ace for making it happen!

Knee is feeling better. Coach said sprinkle in some fun today! She must have known a week ago it was going to rain. Love splashing through the mudpuddles!  Not as much fun without my mom calling me a “ninny” or giving me hell for making a mess in the house!

Today the athletes finished at Laguna Seca Race Way, after 120 miles! These athletes are amazing, at the end of the week they will cover over 700 miles and lots of elevation ( I’m too tired to do the math 😜) Today they rode with Kristin Armstrong, 3Xolympian and gold medalist, and yesterday our guest rider was  Jens Voigt. CTS ATOC Experience is a bucket list!!! #amgentourofcalifornia #ctsathlete #ilovemybike #ilovemyjob #shutuplegs
