(Earned Not Given)
Done ✅ with my first Triathlon participation ever @wtsabudhabi 2017 For the Olympic distance in @ymcofficial with super nice organized by @abudhabisc .
This participation means allot for me as a person who was 3 years ago in 2014 suffering obesity with weight over +197kg & 2knee surgerys ; when I decided to change my lifestyle take a serious step in the way to be an athlete after getting advice form one of my best friends .
It's also means allot for my friends,trainers who believe in me abilities & all my supporters in the last 3 years & on the top them my brother & coach @mjd_smith with his team at @innerfight HQ doing #crossfit .
What I did before during year 2014 to loss over (100kg) within year of time ; its consider as achievement , But this was not enough for me ; My target was to become an athlete and To confirmed words of H.H @hhshkmohd (NOTHING IMPOSSIBLE) .
So in beginning of 2015 after I loss my overweight I start working hard to improve my fitness level day after day , month after month , Tell it becomes year after year with out stoping chasing my targets 🎯.
In January 2017 my plan was to set up big goal then work hard to achieve it .
Choice was on (Dubai Marathon) my first official sport participation ever in my life completed it 05:08 hours .
The reason behind Dubai Marathon was to inspire more people to the fitness & it's the same reason to do @wtsabudhabi In addition to say (NO FOR ANY EXCUSES).
just it is all believing in your self that you can do it.
After Marathon done i feel that am having strong endurance level especially I started 2years ago endurance cycling training on my first road bike @wolfisbikeshop with support of my friend @roadbikedubai to chose the right bike for me ; that was days after attending @im703middleeast 2015 when I was enthusiastic with this awesome event .
I remember that day when I was with my coach @mjd_smith To support our friends ; When I told him that I want to do the ironman event in future!?
what do you think 💭? He reply to me with one word (easy) & That it's how it starts .
In the end would like to thanks @wtsabudhabi Where I get my start to future endurance competition.
