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.
FABULOUS FORTNIGHT!! Just taking the chance to sit and reflect on how epic the last couple of weeks have been. Attending the UAE Tour official team presentation in the architectural masterpiece that is @louvreabudhabi was a highlight. Closely followed by the opportunity to get even closer than I ever though possible to all the role models of my sport, being a bike holder really was an unforgettable experience I need to thank @cyclingwithruth for. Shortly after, the months of preparation came together to successfully support and provide technical assistance/bike rentals to athletes from 54 countries. Meticulous planning and organisation made for an extremely smooth weekend on an event on a truly world class platform. The team @yascycles demonstrated outstanding teamwork and professionalism for the elite athletes and amateurs. An unforgettable experience for us all. Also met some world class triathletes including the current world number 1 @mariomola.. What a great guy. How will things ever go back to normal? 😂😂 #blessed#thankful#yascycles#triathlon#wtsabudhabi#gulfmultisport#myabudhabi#jointheorangefamily#ymcofficial#on_running_me#bmcmiddleeast#tri#thisplacerocks#opportunities#alwaysgrateful
Today my challenge from @tomwalkerfitness was to run 16km and i really wanted to make it right. I had a healthy smoothie with oat, banana and almond milk and one double espresso approximately 1h30 before the time i wanted to run. Than my day started to trick me. After the school run I got stock at the typing center to renew my ID and had my medical, than i had my appointment at the print center, right after a supplier to see near International City and a transfer to do at the bank. The most important was to be on time to pickup my son by 12:45 at school. Add a quick lunch, do a bit if grocery and pickup my daughter by 3pm. Bring her to a playdate and finally by 4pm i was able to do my run. I was already tired from my day but I really wanted to do it and i new deep down that i will feel great doing it! It was my 1st 16km. My only goal was to keep a pace below 6min/km and i did it! The last 3km reminded me very badly that i lacked of discipline with the foam roller and the stretching but most of all, i was just happy to be able to run that far and have a moment for ME only during my day! #dubairunning#dubaimoms#loveyourself#dubaifitness#dubaimums#running#runningmotivation#fitmom#metime#onrunningshoes#on_running_me#ifendurance#ilovemylife#beachlife 🌴
