Nice shot 📸 by @higgybabyphotography from #stanthonystri on Sunday. @ownwayapparel race kit is 🔥🔥🔥. Had a solid ride coming in under 54 minutes and moving up from 9th out of the water to 3rd off the bike. My @f2cnutrition plan was 1 bottle with 1.5 scoops of glycodurance and 2 scoops of hydradurance. Set me up perfectly for the run where I had 1 gel. #timetrialtuesday #ttt #timetrial . . . . . . . . . . . .
