Jenna places 5th in Chicago Triathlon


Coming into T2, I was in 5th place about 1 minute down off of 4th. I wanted to have a strong run, so I charged hard and ran well through about 8k when my side cramped up. I was a bit bummed out because I had hoped to post a quick run time on the day, but I just tried to keep it together, focusing on my technique and breathing, and I held on to a solid 5th place at the end of the day. It was a great day, perfect weather, great fan support and just an enjoyable experience overall. I look forward to racing in Chicago again next year.

Now, I am at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs where I am having some tests and evaluations done on some niggling areas in my left leg. Nothing major, but I want to take care of things so I can race to my absolute potential. Hopefully, we can get some answers and a strengthening plan sorted out in the next few days so I can get back to work for L.A. and Dallas in October. I will be based out of Boulder for the next few months as I wind down the season, take a break, and then start to ramp it back up for another year of hard work and even faster racing!

Take a look on for more photos from the race.
