In the weekend, there was supposed to be the Ironman in Taupo but it was shortened due to terrible weather conditions. This meant the swim was cancelled and the bike and run shortened to 90km and 21km respectively. A number of athletes chose not to complete this shortened course due to the dangerous conditions.
One of the people who didn’t compete was my mum. Mum was entering her first Ironman and has been training for ages to enter and is naturally, very disappointed that the race couldn’t go ahead. But I am still really proud of her and I can’t wait until next years’ event to be there to cheer her on in person.
Yay mum, you’re my biggest hero!
