China here we come…

autographing

most of the preparation for Ironman China is over and done with and now in my body. I’m pretty stoked for this race, it’s the most I’ve ever trained for this distance, both physically and mentally. Coach and I both know I am about to have the best race of my life.

Singapore was more of a test race for me, and I had done the marathon around the track just 5 days before…I was in denial about it affecting my race then, but now that I stop and think about it, huh! maybe I still had a marathon in my legs?! Well, since then we’ve done another marathon and I improved by another 5 minutes and unofficially “qualified for Boston” with it. 3:39:57. that’s kind of hilarious actually. Despite wanting to throw in the towel with 7k to go… yes, I walked 200m and stopped to talk to Coach because somehow I thought it would feel “easier” than the first time…HA! He made me finish and said “you’ll thank me later.” Thank you, Coach!

On the mental side, I believe in myself now more than ever. I belong here, and I will get there.

Tuesday we leave for Singapore, Wednesday we land in China.

It’s been a long journey to get here, and it’s only just the beginning.
