It’s official. I made it. I’m an IRONMAN.
It was a tough slog yesterday, especially in the wet weather, but I don’t know what’s going to beat the elation I felt running down that finish chute and hearing the words “YOU ARE AN IRONMAN”.
If you’re not across what an Ironman involves, basically you swim 3.8km, then cycle 180km and finish it all off with a 42km marathon! Yeah … it’s a bit mad!
I set out just to finish the race with good form but I ended up crossing the finish line a full 40 minutes earlier than expected with an overall time of 13 hours and 24 minutes. Pretty stoked!

I want to give a shout out to my amazing coaches Bruce and Christina Thomas from Energy Link. Bruce and Christina changed the game for me and I’m really grateful to have their support. Bruce and Christina – thank you.
I also wanna say a huge THANK YOU to all of YOU for your support on Sunday. I was blown away by everyone who reached out to wish me luck, turned up to cheer me on in the race and by everyone who donated to Interplast, the not-for-profit I was representing on the day.
My IRONMAN journey has been 5 long years in the making and I’m so proud to be where I am right now. We honestly, truly can do ANYTHING if we set our minds to it, and never, ever give up.
