Boulder 70.3 in Pictures

Sunrise at the Boulder Reservoir. If I wasn’t so nervous and in the porta potty, I might have enjoyed it!


I’ve said it before, this place called Boulder sucks:


You can see the terror/worry in my eyes.


I remember seeing the photographer inside a large fishbowl and wondered what he was doing.


“Hello, I am smiling to hide my anxiety. Right now I am actually peeing in my wetsuit.”


Finally getting in my groove:


About 3 miles from the finish line. What’s not to smile about except that it’s 95 degrees and I almost crapped my pants.


Coming into the finish, glad this bitch is over.


This moment was worth 15 weeks of early morning workouts, one crash on the bike, the nerves, the uncertainty, the training hours:




PS: Finish video is HERE if you care.


  1. Such great pictures! Congrats again on an awesome race! I love your tri top - what brand is it? Since I want my upcoming race experience to be as good as yours, I thought I would start with the clothes and then work on the speed later ;)

  2. So worth it! Great athletes "fake it" even when they are nervous. Your body language speaks confidence! Again, a HUGE congrats Beth! You put in the work and got rewarded with a stellar performance.

  3. You look so amazing Beth! The pic of me in my wetsuit is a joke. I'm trying to rip the neck part off.. really? Iooked a little freakish! So happy I got to see you!

  4. Fantastic shots of a fantastic day! That was some first 1/2IM!!! WHAT A GREAT PERFORMANCE!!
    Love the pic of you and Julie in the water pre-swim.

  5. Right on! Nice job - you look strong in every photo!

  6. So amazing! CONGRATS Beth! I agree with Jess- your body language in those pictures really does speak confidence. Way to go lady!!

  7. Great pics and congrats on your finish!!

  8. I am impressed with how much strength and ability you got in such a short time. You've only started running three years ago, right? That is just amazing and it inspires me to reach outside my comfort and try larger and longer races, too! I'm so glad you share your experieances w/ us!

  9. Love the photos! Congrats on not crapping your pants :D

  10. Great pictures! You may have felt freaked out, but you sure didn't look it!

  11. WOW - what do you have to do to get that many medals? :)

    Great pictures - looking strong and happy throughout!

  12. Those are awesome photos and a great way to remember your first 70.3

    BTW - you and I never discussed the fact that you killed your bib number as your bike time. You said 3:04 would be an awesome bike time and yet you did 2:53.....yup, you killed it.

  13. I'll say it again, "AWESOME"!!!
    The pictures are great. You are such an inspiration to others.. (me)

  14. Incredible. I find running more difficult even if I've kicking around in my pool before hand, so I'm always blown away by the people who swim, then bike, then run.

  15. Great pictures! That sunrise is so beautiful

  16. Congratulations!!! And it was all worth it!

    You crushed it!! And got great pix! Thanks for sharing. AWESOME job!!!

  17. Wahoo! Great pictures! You look awesome in every single one! Don't you love that they have videos of the finish now?? I was amazed the first time I saw myself cross a finish line.

  18. great pics.

    how do you live in that shit hole town?

  19. Awesome pics...and girl your arms are smokin'!

  20. Great pics for a great race!

    Wish you would have let me know you were peeing...I would've moved over a little! :)

  21. The pictures are great but the video is AWESOME! You were first across the line in the video…sort of like being the best…in that clip ;-) Seriously though, it is just about the coolest thing and I am so incredibly impressed by your training, your performance, your edginess and your humor. You rock in every sense of the word.

    But what is UP with that dude who was running and then strolls across the fuckin line?

  22. You ROCKED it and look it. Congrats again!

  23. Awesome shots and most impressed you fixed your tri-top for the finish line shot. Very pro cycling.

  24. Nice job! You had some great photos! Looks like a nice day!

  25. Congratulation again. What an awesome day you had. Such pretty photos!

  26. It is great days like this that define you. You are an awesome athlete.

  27. You rock! Such an inspiration! Glad you didn't crap your pants. :)

  28. So glad you kicked ass, and managed to make it through without crapping your pants. 95 degrees is not nice at all, unless it involves margaritas poolside, so way to go!

  29. Of course I care
    pic on the bike and the last one crossing the line are my 2 favorites!

  30. I love that after you crossed the line you kept running looking fresh like a daisy...and couple people later comes this guy at 5:58:20 and he stopped running right before crossing the line and walked to cross!!!!

    see I care :)
