Yesterday I snagged a victory at Challenge Cairns,
one of the most scenic and exciting races I have ever done!
Cairns is absolutely beautiful with its own lagoon and water
park right at the finish.The city hosts some great resortsd
and hotels,and some fantstic cafe’s and coffee shops.The
locals are friendly and helpfull and really got behind the city
showing their support by lining the streets alon the finish line.
It was a picture perfect day with only a little wind and aa maximum of
The swim started at Yorkeys Knob boat ramp,where we shared
the water with apparently 4 local crocs, one 4 metre one that lurks
around there but is not able to be tracked apparently!
I think this was why my swim was quite good I was swimming
scared of being last and taken by a hungry crocodile!
My poor mum was to race in the teams the last to enter the water and
all i could think of the whole swim was I hope she is going to be ok!
I exited with the lead girls,Granger and Pearson and we all
started the bike together.
We were reeled in at 60km by a charging Lester, to her credit
she had ridden solo upto the 3 of us!
I felt great on the bike and comfortable , preparing my legs
for a good marathon was all i was thinking about!This
was soon distrupted by a 5 min penatly( no more chatting to Belinda during a race)!!
I hammered back from Yorkeys Knob after sitting for 5 minutes and
came into transition only 245 min down, making upover 2 min
over my last 60km.
Onto the run and I thought of my twin sister being out
there with her arm stitched and a torn calf,so i told myself
‘harden up’as I passed Bel and Lester.
The run was a tough 19.5 km stretch along the bare Highway
with no shade and not many spectators.Once in town for the 3 loops
though it was amazing.The crowd support and that from my
family and friends got me home in first place.
Thanks so much to Challenge for a fabulous event once agin.
Thansk to USM-Geoff and Lisa and especially thanks to Felix!
