My 1st ever Individual Category Olympic Distance Triathlon I raced
✓- Conquer the fear of water/big waves/deep blue sea
✓- Learn to SWIM!!!!
✓ - Before reaching age 30, at least race a Standard/Olympic distance triathlon event
Another milestone achieved, Fighting depression each day just to tell myself that there are reasons why bad things happen to my life, As I question God why things happened, why I find all the things I do are meaningless , the Lord was never late nor He came short to His answers, He was there throughout my preparation for this event and struggles. He never left, He in fact indeed planned this trip that I manage to do it independently and safely despite the original plans. Plans may changed, people may come and go, but the Lord remain, lead me to meet these kind hearted people who would go an extra mile and reached out. Na sesepanx ako sa group na to pero I thank you Tri-Natin Team , you guys went to an extra mile. I'm happy to meet you guys. I thought I would face this event alone but here the Lord presented Himself beyond my expectations. Indeed God is good, He never leaves nor forsake you. It was never an accident meeting you guys, thank you for adopting me as your import athlete from Davao lol.
Commit to the Lord whatever you do,
and he will establish your plans.
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
I learned a lot after picking up this sport. I finally got my resolve.
