Quick Quassy Update

Thanks to all of you who left such kind and encouraging comments on my last post and facebook.  It really does mean a lot to me that I have friends rooting for me!!

I had a great race today.  I'm totally spent.  It was a long day on a ridiculously hard course. I did the best I could, which just happened to be good enough for

1st Place Athena!!!!

Definitely made a good call with that one (thanks, S.!!)  Here are some quick pics thanks to my better half.  He got a couple of great pictures of the pros, and some not so great ones of me...

Craig Alexander checking in this morning.

Matty Reed, pre-race.

Bjorn Andersson...I just think this is a really cool pic.
Compare his bike mounting form to mine...

It's all good, right??

Heading into T2 from the hilliest bike ride EVER!

Now heading out (with a shot block in my  mouth) to the hilliest run ever!

The pro winners got their fat checks way before I even finished.

Into the finish chute, 

and onto the podium!!

I will have a full race report in the next couple of days.  Right now I'm climbing into bed with a huge slice of chocolate cake.  I may or may not share with Kel...


  1. Woo hoo! Athenas rock! Congrats on your great finish!

  2. Definitely don't share it.....CONGRATS on your awesome finish! I was thinking of you this weekend!

  3. Great job, Kelly! You're an inspiration to all of us!

  4. Wow, congratulations on your awesome finish!! 1st place is something to be VERY proud of. And, I hope you didn't share any cake - you deserved it!

  5. As a fellow Athena, I say rock on! Congrats! Be super proud of your accomplishment!

  6. AMAZING!!! Wow. you have come so far, so fast. Congratulations on a super-fine finish on your super-hilly course!!!!! <-- extra !'s just for you. ;-)

  7. YAY!!!!! Congratulations Kelly! That's amazing :)

  8. awww congrats!! i love the photos..specially guys without shirts

  9. WAY TO GO! I totally saw you the morning of the OLY. you walked right by me, but I felt totally creepy and stalkerish just at the thought of saying hi!! :) I'm a dork. Nice job!!!

  10. Congrats on a great race! Glad we had our little discussion before the race "you are a cyclist, you will crush that course" and you did. It worked for me as well, once you reminded me that I was a swimmer I swam to a personal record! It was great to meet you and Kel, you guys are great. Congrats to Kel as well for a great race on Saturday. I love the picture of Anderson mounting the bike :<)

  11. Wow! I am so inspired! I just registered for this one and I am so scared of the hills!!! Loved the bike mount pictures... Ha! I dream of looking like the top photo, but am actually more of the the bottom... I love your attitude.... It is all good!


Woo-hoo!! I want to hear from you!
