Recovery Week

I got the warm fuzzies when I saw this on my Monday Training Peaks schedule for two reasons: 1. RECOVERY WEEK and 2. Eagleman-specific training! In Virginia, spring is definitely trying to make its appearance. We have days in the upper 40s/low50s with sunshine and rain, but it still drops into the 20s/30s at night. … More Recovery Week

Death Valley 10K

“Well, I wasn’t expecting that!” was the first thing I said to Tyler after I crossed the finish line in 52 minutes, 49 seconds, my second fastest 10K time ever. I was expecting sub-60 minutes and hoping for sub-56 minutes, which would be faster than any of my training runs since starting to train again … More Death Valley 10K

My favorite moment, hands down, of the year was Maine 70.3. All 6 hours, 48 minutes and 40 seconds of it. Instead … More Sport + Life: 2017

Race Recap: Maine 70.3

On August 29th finished my first half Ironman, Maine 70.3. It was truly an experience I’ll remember forever. Since it’s taken me almost three months to write this, let’s get right into it! I started the race with two very specific goals: Goal #1—finish between 7-7:30 Goal #2—make all the cutoffs-(most worried about the swim) … More Race Recap: Maine 70.3
