With the day starting off in the early hours, we all met up to have somewhat of a celebratory team breakfast. Not just to fuel for the day, but also to give ourselves a mini pat on the back for the previous 10 weeks of training that we had all put ourselves through in order to participate in the event. In case you were wondering, I did go the pancakes (good bit of carbs before an endurance event is ok for the body).
After a 1 hour drive out to Broadford, we were all set and ready to go with our fluoro sweatbands and zinc drawn on our faces. As you can imagine, doing this event for the first time had us all a little bit nervous when we were waiting at the starting line. However, this disappeared quite quickly and replaced with sheer joy when the starting gun went off!
After crossing the finish line, I’m proud to say that this was an experience of a lifetime! The 5 of us have been bonded by our efforts throughout the day, as well as the 10 weeks of training leading up to the event. In fact, we are so pleased with our efforts and enjoyed it so much that we are now looking for more adventure races to complete throughout the rest of the year, and going on in 2016. Next stop Spartan Stadium Race in Geelong on the 5th of December! Massive thanks to all who supported us throughout the day and weeks in the lead up! BRING IT ON!!!
