Well guys I can FINALLY let you in on a little secret I’ve been keeping….

I’ve been invited to compete in the Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii this October!

So, just when I thought I was gonna be spending the rest of 2016 hanging out on the couch, I’m now training like a maniac again.

I’m totally pumped and completely terrified – I’ve been told that it’s just like doing a regular IM but on steroids. Not so reassuring!

This will be massively hectic challenge and I am pretty nervous about the heat.

Because 65% of my body surface has been burnt, it’s really hard for my skin to do it’s job in regulating my body temp. 

So, is anyone handy with DIY plumbing? Thinking a little shower coming from my handlebars should do the trick haha.

Honestly though, this is a dream come true for me and I’m really humbled to have the chance to compete alongside so many Ironman champions. 

Bring it on!
