Just a quick update, I have settled in Penticton and it is the night before Day 1 of Ultra520k Canada. Am I nervous…..you bet! Am I excited…..absolutely! So many emotions all rolled into one but more importantly I can’t wait to get out there and experience the high’s and lows of what the next 3 days are going to offer.
I am so lucky to have an amazing crew here in Canada with me:
Ruth Chang – Personal Physio, GKEndurance coach but most importantly friend, who knows me so well. I have apologised already to her for what might happen over the next few days 🙂
Marian Brennan – More commonly known as Mazzy…..who has taken time out from her Holiday in Canada to come and chase me around over 3 days and 520km! At least she will get to see some great scenery along the way! I am trusting Ruth and Mazzy with all my nutritional and emotional needs!
Jeff Shilt – Coach and Friend! I know how difficult I can be at times to deal with….unfortunately I can be very stubborn. This can be a good and a bad thing! It did not take him long to work me out! Jeff has more belief in me than even I do in myself! This means a lot to me. He has prepared me for what is to come and I am so glad to can be here for it.
Guy Crawford??? I have no idea who he is….just some random I picked up on the drive here from Boise!
No…seriously….I could not have done any of this with out him. He always supports me with what I do…but this has been a little detour from the norm and he joined me for many of my longer rides and runs. Thank you babe for putting up with me when I was grumpy, tired and didn’t care for a word you had to say! I know come Monday when I cross that finish line after running 84km it will all be about you again 🙂
Its show time!!
