Pre Challenge Taiwan Half
3rd time lucky? 3rd times a charm?
Considering I have already been charmed and lucky to win here twice, I might have to invent a new saying to continue my streak of wins here in Taiwan and make it another #peat! Any ideas?
My fitness and form have been steadily improving since my break after IMNZ and I find myself sitting in my hotel room in pretty good shape. I’ve had the luxury of being able to do some more specific work for this half, as Ironman Cairns, which is next up, is still 7 weeks away.
However, my sights are well and truly set on Cairns and tomorrow for me is simply going to be a good chance to get out there and smash myself against some class competition, something I am really looking forward to.
My biggest threat, or should I say monumental hurdle, comes from fellow Kiwi, and champion of a man, Terenzo Bozzone. He is one of the best in the world over the half-distance and although I would love to beat him and come away with the win, it will be one hell of a task and I will still have to race my own race. There are also a few other kiwis and aussies here, a good old Anzac clash on Anzac day. Mike Phillips, Hammish Hammond, Mitch Kibby and Mitch Robins, + more, are all here to get on that podium and will be tough to beat.
Anyway, thanks for reading and hope everyone is doing well. Will post an update after the race.
