Wow. What a great weekend it turned out to be for me at Port Macquarie this year.
I had a bit of a slow start to the year nursing a Hip tear which stopped me from any running for two months and a DNF at Challenge Wanaka earlier in the year.
I didn’t have time to do my normal run build up so I was very nervous to see how that marathon off the 180km bike was going to pan out.
Nick and I drove down on the Thursday after school drop off and it didn’t stop raining for much of the way down. The forecast was looking very sketchy and I was preparing for the worst.
Saturday included the IRONKIDS event and I had been asked to hand out some medals at the finish line, I loved it! The excitement on the kids faces even though the organizers had to cancel the swim and just do a run due to the weather didn’t stop them one bit!
We had 11 of our programmed clients racing on the weekend and it was great to catch up with them all, some we had never actually met face to face. We always try to have a catch up and a swim with our athletes when we’re at the same event which is nice as our coached athletes live all over Australia.
