My first ever @majorleaguetri
race was a blast! Took home 3rd with the San Diego Stingrays in some pretty crazy conditions 🌪🌊. Looking forward to the next one in Vail in two weeks!

: Lençóis Maranhenses National Park is located in Maranhao state, in northeastern Brazil. It's an area of low, flat, occasionally flooded land, overlaid with large discrete sand dunes. It compasses roughly 580 sq.miles and despite abundant rain, support almost no vegetation.
Composed of large, white, sweeping dunes, at first glance Lençóis Maranhenses looks like an archetypal desert, but in fact it is not an actual one. Lying just outside Amazon Basin, the region is subject to a regular rain season during the beginning of the year. The cause a peculiar phenomenon: fresh water collects in the valleys between sand dunes and is prevented from percolating down by a layer of impermeable rock which lies underneath the sand. The resulting blue, green and black lagoons. 🔝🙌✨☀😎
Happy Tuesday 😃

What come easy won’t last and what lasts doesn’t come easy! .
Have a great week everyone 💪🏊🏻♂️🚴🏃♂️
Well what a weekend!!!!! All started with chaos in Manchester airport. Turning up over 2hrs prior to departure but due to the sheer number of people didn't get to the plane until 10 mins before take off. Got to Tallin, Estonia to find my equipment had not been shipped with me.
While making panicked phone calls to every man and his dog a kind Estonian (Karen) overheard our conversations. She then offered to help us and put me in touch with a friend (Karin) of hers who could loan a bike if needed.
So after many hours of stressing and not being able to prepare due to missing equipment I took up the offer. I also need to thank the team manager Jon, his support and enthusiasm. Jon managed to source a pair of cycling and running shoes. Also thanks to Oli who gave me tape and a race belt.
I need to thank my wonderful family and friends for their words of support when I was not in the right frame of mind. Can't forget to thank Alan Ward for the coaching that made me capable of adapting to such events.
Last person who needs a special mention is my beautiful wife Marlee who even after the mania of this past weekend, still runs around after me carrying equipment and taking photos.
When I got to the start line I decided to just go and give it my all and whatever happens, happens.
I'm more than over the moon with the result. Again thank you to all those who have helped!!!!! #britishtriathlon #bronze #gohardorgohome #swimbikerun #cyclist #cyclestore #tritrainingharder #sport #crazy #ginger #labcold #swimmer #illtakeit #multisport #limit #blue #trilife #tri365 #worldoftri #greatbritain #european
"Savoir renouveler pour ne pas délaisser"
Besoin de changer mes circuits vélo, ras le bol de poser mes roues toujours aux mêmes endroits à en connaître toutes les imperfections de la route.
Monday Memories! 55km into an 80km Trail race this one and my first ever podium finish. Even better memory from this day was listening to the mighty @richmond_fc
win the grand final!
HUUUGE congrats to our very own #teamTITAN2018
Professional Triathlete & TITAN staff member Amber Pate @bambie_pate
for earning the prestigious achievement of @triathlonsa
2018 South Australian Female Triathlete of the Year. 💥
Amber, your infectious energy, enthusiasm, willingness to listen & learn and passion to improve is so admirable & makes you something very special. Always be you and you will go far in both sport & life. We’re super proud of you Amber & you’re well deserving of this recognition. Well done champ!👊🏼
After yesterday’s big PR, you would think that I’d be itching to get back into the pool tonight. In fact, it was the complete opposite. A rubbish day at work transitioned into zero motivation to go swimming. And it reflected in my times. Still, I did the set. Now to dust myself off. Tomorrow is a new day. 🏊🏼🚴🏽🏃🏽
Someone say race week? Bring it on!
It’s race week 🙌 Huntington’s Tri this Sunday! 🏊🏻♀️🚴🏻♀️🏃🏻♀️🏁 Happy Monday y’all ❤️
Studies have shown that riding your bike with your tounge out saves watts.
This study may have only been carried out by @noisycricket

Broke in my new amazing @gymshark
gear with a huge session @fitnfastgyms
South Yarra with @decaz__.
I’m so lucky to have amazing training partners who encourage me to push myself and becoming fitter and stronger. Today @decaz__
taught me how to properly do a deadlift which I will be adding into my regular routine. Training partners are invaluable as in each and every session they make you become a better version of yourself.
I tried out my new #eneybouy

This is my journey. Some people are faster, some make the jump quicker but we are all on our own personal journey to achieve something. Until you reach your end point and achieve what you have spent years working towards it is hard to put into words that feeling you get when you cross your finish line.
