An Olympic Distance??!!! Well, I haven’t done one of those for a number of years but I am planning to give it a go at the end of the month. The Chicago Triathlon is the largest Olympic Distance triathlon in the US (I think – don’t quote me!). The last Olympic distance I did was in 2006 at the ITU World Age Group Championships in Lausanne, Switzerland. I had the honor of representing Bermuda (then my country of residence) in the 35-39 women’s world age group race. I had a broken foot at the time but didn’t know until I had it diagnosed a few weeks later, but boy was it painful to run that 10k! I even mentioned that in my Book – Living Life to the full
So – fast forward 5 years to now – and I’m doing another Olympic Distance!….so used to doing Half Ironmans and now Ironmans and marathons – I know I’ll be in for a shock when I realize and fast and furious the race is and how going fast really hurts!!
