A fantastic weekend of triathlon that would motivate anyone to want to be part of this amazing community. Starting with volunteering for the @worldgamesad with triathlon being included for the first time and with Micah and Jonah taking out the gold and silver for the UAE!! A great experience to be involved with this event before the @worldgamesad start officially on 14 March.
It was race day for my daughter on Friday when she participated in the Junior Super Sprint Relay with two of her friends and how wonderful to see them crossing the finish line together. It was on to @itumultisport Technical Official duties Friday afternoon to help in transition for the @WTS abudhabi elite races and again on Saturday for the exciting Mixed Relay getting up close to these incredible athletes.
And of course I managed to race an olympic triathlon in amongst all that, ending up second in my new age group! The vibe of the race was fabulous thanks to @yascyclestriteam and @tribellesabudhabi in particular along with the rest of the triathlon community and everyone involved in the organisation of the event. Thank you to @damaninsurance for their continued support and the opportunity to be part of the Daman Challenge - Triathlon program again. Looking forward to doing it all again next year.
TriYas was my comeback race in 2011 after not competing in triathlons for 10 years and became my comeback race once again in 2017 post breast cancer so it will always be a special race for me. The event has grown so much and it was wonderful to share it with my friends in the triathlon community including @tribellesabudhabi and @yascyclestriteam and of course my family who came out to support.
While I learned that it is important not to neglect my swim training as I have been, this was by far my most enjoyable race with a great ride and a strong run to finish. The smile on my face on photos taken during the run really says it all - thank you once again @inphota . Also thank you to the organisers @supersportsevents and @damaninsurance (Daman Challenge - Triathlon) for keeping me focussed on my training in the leadup to @wtsabudhabi .
