My first long course race back after my punctured lung in Feb and I was pleasantly surprised to come away with a AG 2nd place and the 2nd fastest Age Grouper on the day. Busselton put on a great day but I still Just missed out on breaking the 4hour mark but, to be honest I didn’t think I would get anywhere near that number. To perform like this off limited base training I think is an example of what training age alone can produce in terms of performance.
Thank you to my strong support network for staying by my side in this difficult and frustrating time but I think we can say upward and onward from here! Thank you to Bizmac scoreboards, SGTI Hotel, CBD cycles, Giant Aust, Mizuno Aust, HUUB, Compressport, Hammer nutrition, Greater city of Geelong, and Endurancteam coaching. and last but not least my family, friends and beautiful girlfriend! I have to say a special thank you to Lish, Dougo, and Wayne for being my housemates for the week and letting me stay with them and driving me around. You made the week so easy for me and I really appreciate it and you both should be proud to have finished your first Half Ironman!
