We swam 33km; We cycled 90km; We ran 42km
That's a half Ironman, 10km swim, 5km swim, 1/2 Marathon and a 3 x 4km swim series all in a week!
I am one of four GIANT WARRIORS! I personally did 19h55m of racing! Just awesome! Bloody well done to my fellow champion comrades: Alison Boggs, Cameron Brown & Willem Jordaan! I’ve had the time of my life racing with you all!
I was 1st lady home in the Lava Half Marathon run on our 7th day of racing in a time of 1.41. Then an hour later we did our final 4.5km swim to finish off the Samoa Swim Series and complete our Giant Warrior races. I was 3rd overall in a small field. Cameron Brown was 1st male in a time of 1.25 (he’s still been training & doing 100-190km everyday for the past four days- such is the life of a Pro! Legend!)
Then we swam our final epic 4km deep blue sea ocean swim of the Samoa Swim Series. And just like that, one week has already passed!
Moral of the story: GRAB LIFE BY THE HORNS & JUST DO IT!!
Thank you Afoa Seti Afoa of Samoa Events & crew for putting on these epic events all week! Epic events in stunning locations & making new life-long friends.
