a few relaxing days away!

Tuesday, August 14th, 2012

Yesterday I drove to Embrun in France, in convoy with the boys, for a few nice “relaxing” days away!… All I have to think about is myself, it is quite strange!

Tomorrow I will race Embrunman. The toughest iron distance probably. This will be my 6th time racing Embrunman, I know it well, and what I have ahead.
We start at 6am and I will be out there all day!!! With Dan, Powder, Dave and lots of French guys. It will be a lot of fun!!?!!

I have won this race 3 times before, I remember them clearly, they were very special wins. Embrunman was my first iron distance race back in 2002, Brett took me because he thought I was tough enough for it, I won that day and I will remember it forever. 2 times here I have had tough days, in 2006 I came 2nd and in 2010 I came 4th. I will battle it out tomorrow, I expect with Erika Csomor who I have battled with 2 times already this year!

I will update you how it goes in the days after…!

Here is a photo my sister took of Charlie on his 1st birthday last week when she was visiting!
