As I looked at my watch and saw I had 1km to go, I got into my breathing rhythm and managed to overtake 5 people, who were shattered from exhaustion, before crossing the line.
Winning your race isn't about just finishing fast. It's more about finishing strong.
Building yourself up to the finish line, ensuring you feel absolutely epic- that, to me, is a race I've won.
There were parts of the course where we ran through a field that had small cones to guide us. Of course, I slalomed it with my arms out, cruising.
Of course, I was thanking the Team GB triathlon team for overtaking me and of course, it was a day with a higher purpose attached to it. No doubt in doing this season of events we're helping people across the world live in a better place.
If you haven't already, please donate to my justgiving.com page under OurHumanityFirst. If we take care of the important things first, all else will fall into place.
Thank you for your support so far. If you've enjoyed what you're keeping up to date with, you'll love what's about to go down in the rest of the season.
