It has been around 2 weeks since I’ve arrived in Brazil, everything looks the same, but I think who use travel around the world knows how many little things can change during two months away from where you live! After couple days trying to put myself in the right jet leg, paying some late bills, and visiting my family to give that warn hug in my mom at Mother’s Day, I started to train properly. Weather here has been great with warn sun every day and quite cool nights, so the sessions has been great.
Last weekend I did a race in Brasilia. It is a stage of a big circuit of races around many states in Brazil. I did not have many worries during all day and after the first lap of the bike I was leading in a group with another five guys, because I knew there was no runner better than me I just wait for the first km on the run where I dropped everybody and just cruise to the end! However I did not have much attention of the big crowd in the race area over there, everybody just want to see “Big O” wining one more race in her home town, o.k I must say she did look great with not even a drop of sweat on her body to cross the finish line and give that smile to the cameras and chat straight away with everyone, that was the lesson of the weekend: “There is just one Triathlon Queen in Brasilia and that is our Big O”.
It is very good to know I don’t need to race against her over there, but I think I will talk with the race organizers to make a stage in “ Descalvado” the huge metropolis where I came from! I know it will be very hard to stop the intense traffic in the city but I have no doubt many thousand of people will be there just cheering for me at this time….hehehehehe
