The Quest for 40 Marathons Continues

I had a great time representing PossAbilites at the Long Beach Marathon. This was my 6th straight year competing in this marathon, and I always look forward to going back. This event has always been a great way for me to guage my progress over the years. It’s usually the first event I complete after a summer training period. Every year I have the same goal, improve my finishing time and become more efficient. I’ve been trending in the [...]

Set a NEW PERSONAL BEST at the final Fiesta Island TT of 2018! Great feeling to finish off the season on a HIGH! By Jenna Rollman

Fall is in full swing and this is usually the time of year when most people are winding down and preparing for the holidays, so it was a great personal success to end the 2018 Fiesta Island TT season on a high note! 😄 I have been training intensely on my indoor trainer for the last three months and there aren’t many races going on at the moment so I haven’t had a chance to gauge where my fitness is [...]

Pensacola Cycling Classic 3rd place overall H-3 Alfonso Garibay

I was  my first time doing Pensacola Cycling Classic stage race and considering the level of competition that showed up to race. I am very pleased with my performance despite having made a few mistakes all the hard work and effort I put into my training kicked in and I performed just as I had trained. Mechanical issues and all. The first race was [...]

“A change of career”

Greetings to everyone that follows Team PossAbilities! For those who are not aware, please refer to my post “Gold Coast World Championships Series – The 2018 Finals”: The sport of triathlon is taking a back seat (not my decision), so I decided to change sports, and I’m reaching out to announce that. I’ve been in touch with the Brazilian Snow Sports Federation and I have news: I am getting into snowboard racing!! There’s an indoor competition happening in early November, an indoor [...]

Marathon Weekend

This past weekend, I had the opportunity to race in the St. George Marathon on Saturday in Utah and the Long Beach Marathon on Sunday in California. After winning the St. George Marathon the last two years, I felt the pressure to come up with a victory again this year. It was dark, cold, rained, and even hailed but I managed to come away with the win again. The competition was tough and we hit speeds in excess of [...]

US Open Adaptive Surfing Championship – Oceanside

Greetings! In early October I participated in the 2nd edition of the US Open Adaptive Surfing, my first surf comp where there was a monetary prize purse, $1000 for the 1st place! There were 80 athletes and about 15 countries represented. As much as I love surfing, I didn’t do well at this competition, only going until the second round. Surfing can be a frustrating sport, and even though I can hold my own on big waves, competing is a different story. [...]

September means school is back in session…but not before one last beautiful San Simeon cycling vacation is in the books! By Jenna Rollman

September has been a great month with lots of adventures, fun, and a new beginning for me as a college student! The summer is over but I went on one last camping trip at San Simeon State Park, cycling up and down California’s stunning central coast exploring new roads and revisiting favorite routes to take in the ocean’s incredible beauty while riding my handcycle! Ragged Point, the small coastal town of Cayucos, Morro Bay, and Montana de Oro State Park [...]
