The 2018 season has finally come to a close for me. Finished up with a 17th at the #miyazakiWC this weekend. Was definitely hoping for a lot better, but ITU racing is always an adventure. A huge thank you to everyone who has supported me from family to friends to sponsors and everyone who has followed my journey. I had 17 race weekends this year, some with multiple races for a grand total of 20 times on the start line. In that I had 2 wins and 8 times up on the podium. It has definitely been the most successful year I have had yet, and has had some of the most rewarding moments so far. I am blessed to be able to chase my dream. I go into this off-season very excited for what is to come next year. Time to recharge and then prepare to achieve even greater things next year

So this guy has officially retired from triathlon. From the time I graduated and moved to Boulder, Cam has been a mentor to me. Just about everything I know about this sport I learned from him. He taught me what it means to do this as a true professional. He and his family have always been there for me through some of the hardest times, telling me to come over for dinner and feeding me a big meal when I was struggling and didn’t have much. He’s always been the perfect example of how to do this all the right way. We’ve spent countless hours out training together talking about everything from triathlon to finances to girls and everything in between. It’s been such an honor to train together and racing just won’t be the same without him. I could always count on him to deliver, and it’s pushed me to be better every step of the way. I hope one day I can do for others what he has done for me. I’m excited for him to move on to this next chapter in his life. It’s been an incredible career. Whiskey season is normally only a few weeks, but now it’s whiskey season forever. Thanks for everything dude

The bike will always be the best way to explore and appreciate the places you go #Korea #mungyeong #mountains #fall

Every time I go run in the Florida heat I feel like I’m hoping I see an ice cream truck. 50/50 shot that’s what I was searching for here 📸. @wags.photo

Great weekend of racing here at the #sarasotaWC tied my career best World Cup with a 6th place finish! The race also serves as USA national championships and I’m happy to come away with 2nd there. Then we got to finish it off with a USA victory in the mixed team relay today! #sarasota #triathlon

Great time finishing off the @majorleaguetri season in Charlotte with my #coloradopeaks teammates. Racing twice with the individual super sprint and then right into the relay is always a challenging day but the race format is always a lot of fun. Again time to focus for this weekend with the Sarasota World Cup on Saturday and another mixed team relay Sunday #jasonsmash #majorleaguetri #charlotte #colorado #peaks #itu #triathlon

Only a few more days of Boulder views until I’m off jet-setting around to finish out the season. This time of year is always nice when the temps come down and you can feel winter coming #boulder #flatirons #cycling #fall #autumn

Excited to see what I’ve got tomorrow at @escapeseriestri Beijing! Wrapping up the non-draft circuit for the year. The course here is pretty wild and should make for fun day all around! #escapeseriestri #beijing #jasonsmash
