Ironman 70.3 Jesolo-Venice (2022)

There are a lot of special points to make for this race.  1st, it was my 1st race back since finishing Kona in 2019. I did a virtual 70.3 in 2020 (during the pandemic lockdown) and an indoor mini tri in early 2022. How has it even been that long? Feel like a fraud much? So here is my explanation: after Kona I knew I wanted a little bit of a break. Little did I know the pandemic would hit and give us all that break. During this time we also decided to get serious about IVF so that became the priority. Hormones, weight gain, and then 5 months of pregnancy delayed me further. I signed up for Ironman 70.3 Jesolo-Venice after losing the baby. Training continued to prove to be difficult with an ankle injury then a knee injury then a month pause to Ohio for the death of my dad. Overcoming all this added to the push to toe this line...   2nd, we organized a team destination race. Obviously traveling to Italy isn't the easiest but we landed with 3 TOA athletes racing and a 4th onsite
