Lessons from Kona

After competing in my first Ironman in May 2016, I was invited to compete at the 2016 Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii.

It was an intense and gruelling experience. The heat, the wind, the competition – it’s brutal! For me, it wasn’t the perfect race but I dug deep and gave it everything I had and you can’t ask for more than that!

Ultimately, Kona taught me over and over again that when we get our mindset right, we truly can achieve anything.

I kept a blog in the lead up to race day, check it out below.
