Flying to the finish line ! WE DID IT !!! Metasprint Triathlon on East Coast Park !!!
One year ago, right after the end of my treatment, I went for a run with my friend Aurelie and I barely managed to finish 5km. She came up with this crazy idea to do a triathlon ! I was still digesting side effects of my 1.5years treatment, I was underweighted, exhausted, not really sleeping nor eating much... I looked at her and told her she was simply crazy !!!
And a year later, there we are !!!!! Projects and challenges make you keep going !!!
We proudly managed this triathlon this morning, which has not been an easy one due to tough conditions. We faced a strong current, few departure waves have been delayed (ours by almost 45min) and the swim route was changed ! Then, after trying to swim our best, we started cycling more exhausted than planned. And on top of that... we faced so much wind (YES there is wind in Singapore!) on the second half of the route. So, I let you imagine how physically tired we all started the last part of the race! The run was very challenging with the sun shining and our legs already dead. But mental is everything ! We all made it till the finish line, smiling and proud of our performance :) ⏱ 1h33min44sec. So good and so grateful to be surrounded by friends for such event and moment. First triathlon for most of us ! And we are already planning what's next. Stay tuned ! #teamdebo #fuckcancer
