WE DID IT!!!
7 Half Ironman distance triathlons in 7 Emirates, in 7 consecutive days - Rio and I completed 790.3 kms together ... DISABILITY IS NOT A BARRIER, INCLUSION IS EVERYTHING!
Day 7 in Dubai from La Mer
Firstly I need to thank ALL the #TeamAngelWolf Pack, all our friends, all the community (many we didn’t even know), @worldgamesad team, @dubaisc team, @lamerdubai team, @dubaipolicehq , etc whom came down to support, help or to join in, in some way... so many of you to mention; you will never ever know how much we are deeply grateful to you all! You all made that last painful day possible and made it a beautiful perfect ending for us ... THANK YOU!
The swim was beautiful in the sea; it was a delight to have my daughter, Tia/Little Wolf join us swimming on the last day!
The bike was truly the hardest bike ride of my life. The strong wind had tested me every day this week, but on day 7, depleted in energy, broken and still in pain from all the chafing, the wind was strong and felt it was out to defeat me; but it did not win! Forever grateful to all those that joined us on the bike, and those that came out to fuel Rio, myself and the others ... you all saved the day!
The run was wonderful! I felt free, I could feel the finish line, it incentivised me to pick up the pace... we were nearly home. So many people joined us for the run ... it gave me strength, thank you for all the support!
Rio again was incredible, he genuinely loved every minute; he loved being around so many people, friends and new friends cheering him on; he was truly included within a community!
The 1km inclusive walk ... wow, that was emotional ... there must have been over 100 people that joined us; people we knew, people we had never met who just came to support and the most special part for me, People Of Determination (with disabilities) joined us ... it was truly an INCLUSIVE walk ... THANK YOU to every one of you!
AMAZING DAY on an EPIC JOURNEY!
When we got home, the first thing Rio said, “Race?”
