Jeanni SeymourRace Report

  I love racing in Boulder and it honestly feels like a hometown race for me. Racing at altitude never feels good but the comfort of knowing the course, sleeping in my own bed and not having to fly halfway across the planet makes this race incredibly convenient.    I made a small tactical error early in the swim and … Read More
