You dive in amidst the currents, swimming strongly through the water. You cut through the wind, pedalling hard on two wheels. You crush the earth as you run, beat-after-beat for miles. You know it isn’t easy. Every race is a chance to see how you match up to others, but first to yourself. You prepare the event down to the last detail. You visualise the route to the end and believe it will be a great day. Even if you stand amongst many athletes, you know you are alone. When you start off, the tension disappears, your muscles kick in and adrenalin levels rise. Now your only resource is listening to your body: push, slow down, push, slow down, always at peak concentration. Even if fatigue starts to kick in and breathing becomes more difficult, you’re on a high because you’re giving it your best. Right through to the finish line.
