Sleep, train, eat, repeat. It's all in the preparation.
They said cycling was expensive... Triathlon is next level expensive, I have come to realise. Suddenly, you need thousands of rands just to enter an event most consider ridiculous, except those who believe that this is actually possible.
This is me, but more than this, I have come to cherish what the training has meant in my life. I have set my sights on Durban 70.3 for 2018 and wish to go out and smash it.
However, above and beyond the money already spent on some important gear, like a bicycle and wetsuit, I still lack several things. Race entry alone is just under R4000. My running shoes are on their last legs and won't see me through to June. I still don't have a multisport watch to track my stats and check improvements. I'll need to pay for plane tickets, accommodation, transport, bike transport and food at the event. There are also 2-3 smaller events taking place beforehand that will be fundamental to my training, that also carry hefty entry fees. This is to name some of the more important items on my wish list.
If you feel it in you to play an integral part in another's quest for the impossible, then I'm your Ironman.
