Family & Friends
So today my wife threw me a ‘good luck and bon voyage’ party for my BIG race on the BIG Island of Hawaii. I leave tomorrow and she pulled this together despite being away for the last week in Milan, Italy and arrived back 9am this morning.
I had those closest to me there and it made me realise how important friends and family are – not just in these times but for any time. Life would simply be crap without them. They are soooo important, it is beyond words. Thank you for being here today and all the well wishes.
To all my friends and family that will be thinking of me over the next 2 weeks and especially race day – it is going to make the world of difference. Ask anyone who has competed in an Iron Man – there are very dark places that the body and mind can go to during the course of the day. I will be drawing strength from every fibre in my body. THANK YOU to all of you in advance.
