I write this with a touch of sadness but with a hole lot of happiness and joy in what I have been able to achieve along the way. For basically 14 years I have been travelling the world competing at sporting events ranging from small events in rural Europe to the Olympic Games in China. I am proud of what I have achieved and I am proud that I had the courage to switch sports and start all over again. Even though I have not achieved what I set out to in Triathlon, I gave it a red hot go and that is fine with me.
I could never give up training all together, it has been my life for so long and I enjoy it. For me now it will be for the purpose of being fit and healthy. I will still participate in events and give it my best but my training will definitely not be at the same level.
Thanks for the ride.
