This race took a lot out of me, taking 'Get out of your comfort zone' to a whole new level! You go to a dark place for a while and then you have to pull yourself out of it and keep going. At one point I was just chanting "I just want to finish" to myself. . The swim was so cold (15 degrees Celsius) and I struggled to breathe. Couldnt find a rhythm and most of the time I was swimming alone cause they spaced us out to start. I was so relieved to see the shore, but my hands were too numb to even put my socks on during transition lol. . The bike course was tough - it was windy and hilly and cold wahhhhhh. The hills worked the legs hard man, so by the time I hit the run my legs were gone haha. That's when I told myself to just finish it and take it home. . Do I feel like I could have done better? I think I could, but it's ok, I did what I could with what I had. And given the conditions I faced coming into this, I'm just happy to finish! . It was so cool to see my mum and my friends along the run route cheering for me - thanks @jairachelle @ian_acy @anthonygeow @khongfusion @elaineforeveryoung! And also to everyone at home and on IG for the well wishes!!! .
