Well, I must congratulate every 70.3 athlete out there, for just being able to train and prepare for this event! On Saturday I will swim 1.9km and run 21.1km (skipping the 90km bike ride and letting my team mate Chris, do that bit) and the training for these 2 legs has certainly kept me busy. While I have enjoyed the training, juggling work, kids a training program is always tricky, so for those of you who are able to commit to the training of all 3 legs – hats off to you.
It’s all these athletes I see every year, of all ages, backgrounds and fitness levels that have inspired me to go from an ex-gymnast who enjoyed a walk with her kids, to an open water swimmer in 2012, to this year when I adding running to the “can do” list. Thanks to all of you I have achieved more than I ever thought! Busso 70.3 is one of the most exciting and inspiring events so if you have not experienced one, put in on your bucket list.
