3 and 6 in CdA

We have race reports and photos on the way – it is difficult to get your act together the day after an Ironman. I think a tornado may have struck the inside of the RV (they seem drawn to mobile homes).

We are both pretty happy. The race was tough this year, but we still improved – if not in placing (me) or total PR time (Trev), in several aspects of our performance.
 
In my unbiased, humble opinion as his wife, Trev ROCKED!! He broke into the top 10 in a big way and he isn’t even hobbling around like I am today. In fact, he is rubbing it in a bit too much – jumping up stairs and the like. Everyone was commenting on his form and how strong he looked during the run. He is going to be unstoppable in a couple of years!
I got really cold at the finish b/c there were too many interviews in too few clothes and then I had to go to drug testing for 2 hrs so my legs are SUPER sore today. Like a new post Ironman record soreness. Unless there is a serious hand rail, stairs are not happening.  Don’t worry Chuckie, we are going to go flop in the pool and loosen up this afternoon!
 
I got a Hawaii spot, but Trev just missed out. Not sure how our racing plans will shape up now, but we will keep you posted. I will likely just focus on Hawaii and do some half irons, but Trev may still do Ironman Canada.
 
We have to give a huge shout out to all the awesome people that we have met during our time in Coeur d’Alene.  The Kozaks are our amazingly wonderful adopted family and we feel really embraced by the community here. We are so fortunate to be able to do what we do and to get to know so many inspiring people!

While, at the moment, even walking is an issue I am already looking forward to getting back into a solid training routine up in the Okanagan Valley in BC – the land of lakes and 50m pools.  It will be nice to be close to our families again, and Kalamalka lake is one of my favorite swim spots in the whole world.

More soon… H

  1. Congrats! You and Trevor did awesome! Especially big congratulations to Trevor for breaking into the top 10 – no easy feat! Love from your fans here in Ottawa, ON. Kathleen, Jeff, Abbey, Sadie, and Isaac.

  2. Congratulations to the both of you for your IM CDA results. As a spectator it was awesome to see you flying by throughout the day.

    P.S. Just a minor issue in that I think you actually meant the Kozak’s instead of the Zozaks. They are awesome and Jim is the best and is our tri club’s (Teamblaze Spokane) bike shop sponsor.

    Good luck and keep rocking!

  3. Hey guys. Great race and congratz on a podium finish and a well earned top 10 for Trev.

    Looking forward to hopefully getting some long training days in with you guys when you get back to the Okanagan. Be sure to drop me a line and we can set some days up.

    Eric.

    • Hey Eric,

      We will for sure get together for some training. Looking forward to it. We’re about to leave Coeur d’Alene now – within the hour anyway. Hopefully within a couple weeks we’re back on track.

      Cheers,

      Trev

  4. Congrats to both of you….3rd and 6th is pretty impressive…Nice job!

  5. It was great watching the 2 of you race on Sunday. You should be proud of yourselves. Hopefully I’ll get a chance to meet you in Penticton as I’m going to sign up for next year.

  6. Congrats on your great race – WOW! Your family at PFC was rooting for you both. We’ll be tracking Trevor at Ironman Canada and anxiously awaiting Ironman Hawaii. Good Luck!

  7. Trevor,

    Congrats on crushing Heather in the swim. Hold those three seconds over her head for the next few months at least!

    🙂
