Well it was my second race of the season with a great start in Geelong in Febuary, I was really looking forward to racing with some of my freinds and team mates.
Aex had done a fantastic job with the Team and getting us all ready and organised,it was great to have such support as the last four years I have been alone and left to fend for myself,so it was a nice change! eat at the expo
The Bike Boutique and Avia stand looked great at the expo, I hung out there for a while even having a go on the new treadmill which was the nicest I have ever run.. I think I will have to get myself one!
Unfortunately the race didnt go to plan, write to you from my hotel room in Singapore still in pain and still stinging and itchy!!Sound terrible?…well i guess it was!
I was stung by a jellyfish of some kind right under my arm pit today during swimer the first turn bouy!
I got onto the bike not knowing why it was so so painfull,but hoped it would go away after some time!
How ever I didnt know I was allergic to them,and soon into the bike I found my right arm swollen,along with my neck and tongue,and it got worse as I went.
I tried to punch through, i stopped for some vinegar to splash on my arm hoping it would do the trick!
I continued to try and complete the last lap opf the bike out still only 5 minutes down and in 4th,I can still win if I can run!I know i was running well and all i would have to do was try and get through it!
But with the swelling in my neck and tongue got worse, and go the better of me.
I couldn”t breathe and felt extremely nauseous,ready to be sick I stopped on the side of the road. Unfortunately it was day over for me ,I am very disappointed but I know there are no Jellfish in Port and I have a wetsuit to protect myself thankgod!
I look forward to two weeks time and the biggest race so far of the season,I know i have bigger jellyfish to fry!
Thanks for your continued support,
