Last year, I was supposed to race in Ironman Wales – an epic triathlon race that was naturally cancelled due to COVID. Thankfully, my place was rolled over to the 2021 race.
Like most athletes, my motivation waxed and waned throughout 2020, so I’m almost glad the race didn’t happen. I wasn’t training consistently last year, and I wasn’t ready to do the race justice.
This year, the Ironman is the biggest focus of my life outside of work.
