Czech Chick taking on the triathlon world!

Bball player turn triathlete. Member of E3 Elite Triathlon Team. I love to go fast and I love to win! Oh, and I really love to EAT!

Few words to live by: "Know a good thing when you see it, and don't let it slip away. If you get a chance, take it. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said it would be easy, they just said it would be worth it."
Triathlon has taken me many different places but Hawaii will always hold a special place in my heart. Big island and Kauai you sure have been fun. From the top of the Grand Canyon of Pacific aka Waimea Canyon - see you again soon! #triathlon #swim #bike #run #kona #imkona #hawaii #kauai #fun #amazing #bigisland

Last weekend I finished my 2nd Kona, and 3rd IM. I had two goals – leave it all out there and to win! I didn’t reach my goal of winning even though I posted a swim, bike, run Kona PR’s  and came in 6th AG/17th Overall Amateur, but I did leave it all out there as evidenced by my finish line wobble and my first visit to med tent. It’s very hard to explain what I felt, when I watched the lucky few get on that world championships stage the next day to get their Umeke bowl, but I know I will be back to get what belongs to me. Nobody said it would be easy, but in the end it will be worth it! Follow your dreams and do the work to make it happen. I know I will! #e3training #triathlon #imkona #swim #bike #run #makeithappen #dream #castelli #landrysbicycles #blueseventy #beetit #racepak #ironman #ironmantri #kona #hawaii

One week ago today I was riding my bike through the lava fields and doing my best to stay on it as the winds brought its best that day! I can safely say I wouldn’t want to be riding my bike today as the winds are continuing to pick up here on Kauai as I try to relax for a few more days before heading back to reality! Winds or no winds, I love you Hawaii and I’ll be back soon enough to get what belongs to me ;)! #triathlon #e3training #trek #castelli #pbte #landrysbicycles #ec3d #beetit #racepak #blueseventy #swim #bike #run #hawaii #imkona #kona #kauai #recovery

Best active recovery post #imkona ever exploring the island of Kauai. Selfie fun during our 4 mile hike along Napali Coast with @brianacashmusic to start the trip and legs are feeling great! #recovery #kauai #napalicoast #fun #sun #selfie

As I was waiting for my last acai bowl here in Kona I looked up at the ceiling and saw this! “Wake up and live” #imkona 2014 is in the books but my dream lives on! So follow your dreams and wake up and live! I’ll be back to realize mine soon ;) My wheels are already turning … #imkona #triathlon #swim #bike #run #dream #goals #makeithappen #noexcuses #kona #hawaii @basikacai

Survival mode towards the finish line and with that 2014 is in the books! 2014 - the year of 6th place at the big dances. 6th place age group/7th overall at 70.3 Worlds and 6th age group, and 17th overall amateur at World Champs yesterday. Not the result I was hoping for but I earned my first visit to med tent and left it all out there. Can’t be upset about that! I wanted a windy day and boy oh boy did I get it! More details to come later! Thank you all for your support and tracking me all day - it means a lot! #e3training #e3elite #pbte #castelli #landrysbicycles #beetit #blueseventy #racepak #imkona #ironmantri #ironman

In less than 24 hours, I get to compete in my 2nd Ironman World championship and my 3rd Ironman! Ever since I completed my very first Ironman here in Kona 2 years ago, I knew that I would be coming back. I have a lot of respect for this race and 140.6 miles isn’t exactly a short distance in any conditions, but it was here and then after I crossed that finish line on Ali’i drive that my dream of one day competing at the Ironman World Championships changed to wanting to win the amateur title right here in Kona. No matter what happens tomorrow, I have put my heart and soul on the line for the last two years and it sure came with a ton of sweaty fun, smiles, laughs but also tears and sacrifice. I wouldn’t change a day! Thank you to all who have put up with me and supported me along the way! You ALL know who you are! Tomorrow will be a day to remember and I promise to not keep you glued to the computer for too long. I am in the best shape of my life and when the canon goes off at 7am tomorrow I will have zero regrets, rather I’ll have 110% confidence in my training/ability to make it happen and I will be sure to draw on the countless tough sessions that got me to where I am today when the going gets tough! I have one goal for tomorrow and that is to leave it all out there. We will see how things shake out but to nobody’s surprise my mantra for tomorrow is: “It’s not over until I win” #e3training #e3elite #imkona #blueseventy #landrysbicycles #pbte #racepak #beetit #castelli #ec3d #swim #bike #run #hawaii #kona
