I’ll make this one a quick one, cause I need a shower!

It started with a punch in the face and ended with a needle (after 3 tries) in the arm. Not my best day out there. I salvaged a horrible swim with a strong bike to get myself (and a couple other girls) back on the lead pack. I decided to spot everyone a few seconds in T2 and started the run off the pack of girls at the front. I had some up & down moments running, feeling the heat and the liters of harbour water I decided to drink during the swim…it was sloshing around! Then I went too soon for the sprint for 20th and finished in 22nd spot. They grabbed me at the finish, strapped me in some Hannibal Lecter chair and wheeled me to the medic tent before I knew what was happening and stuck me with a needle….apparently I didn’t look so good…

Not the result I wanted but there were some positives, so I’ll focus on those. Plus, the IV made me feel fantastic after! Guess I have to give them more local emergency contacts too…Richard couldn’t make it to the medi tent in time…

Off to enjoy a few hours in Sydney. Home Monday. Back to the drawing board…
