We only made up a few seconds on the leaders and ended up about 4: This is the first race that I have raced the bike with other women. I have never been fortunate or unfortunate enough to find myself in that position.
Scott told me we were less than a minute back when we had about 10k to go and I just shook my head in disbelief! I came into T2 to see the top five women all in the tent together! I also need to focus on racing through T2 since I was the last one out of that tent and everyone put time into me.
The start of the run was exciting for all the spectators since the top five were within one minute of each other. I was running in fifth. Nothing is ever sure in an Ironman especially during mile one of the run, but I knew that if I executed the run I was capable of, I was going to be giving my hubby another elated, sweaty hug at the finish line.
I came up on Yvonne around mile 3 and later Sid when I took a turn into the neighborhoods. Experience is the only way to become really good at coping with the discomforts and stresses of endurance sports and I had put myself through a great deal of discomfort and stress on my training runs leading up to this race.
There was one workout I remember doing on the treadmill that included 5 X 1 mile efforts. I did the last one in 5: I made the pass into second and Annabell Luxford tried to stick with me for a little bit but eventually fell back. I could see Meredith Kessler and knew that I could move into first as we started running along the waterfront.
The city of Taupo has a deep love for Meredith and as we ran side by side for a couple miles along the most populated part of the course, I thought I was going to go deaf with all the cheering, yelling, and screaming for Meredith.
As we rounded the turn-around for the second lap I could tell Meredith was drifting further behind while I kept going at the same effort. The entire first loop I was struggling to get my heart rate up to my target but reevaluated and made a new heart rate goal for the remaining two laps.
One of the highlights of the day was seeing my sister on the run course for the first time. That last lap I was struggling and just focused on staying hydrated and fueled for the rest of the race. I am overcome with gratitude instead of self-pity for the pain I am in when I think of these people.
I stopped seeing Scott as I headed back into town for the last time and knew that he had left to go secure a spot in the finish chute. Around the same place I had come alongside Meredith Kessler on the first lap, a motorcycle with media came and started videoing me the last 3km. I was still running scared with the knowledge that the legend, MBK, and the comeback queen, Sid, were still running hard behind me.
Just like in Mallorca, there were a flood of emotions as I hit the finish chute: I ran through the chute, screamed, found Scott, and got the best hug in the world. My parents were there as well and got to celebrate with me along with so many others that have helped me in NZ — my homestay Warwick and his girlfriend Julie , my massage therapist in NZ Sandy , and some Ironman Staff who have become friends, Leanna.
My dream, years in the making, had happened. I quickly stopped it and it read 3: I found out later that I had 2: I had set the goal and told myself I got to get a new frying pan if I did… yes, we are getting a new one. Oh the little things in life! Many people have asked if I was surprised by my win.
I think very rarely in sport can winning be a surprise to the winner. My biggest thanks to my new team Big Sexy Racing for getting me everything I needed for this race in short notice!
