We'll perhaps the most famous current racing female triathlete (Chrissie Wellington) just updated her blog:
"My life has changed immeasurably over the past 12 months, in so many incredibly wonderful and very positive ways. Yes, I now have a host of wonderful sponsors, my very own website, nice new clothes, sunglasses that cost more than £20, and yes, there are no more cries of ‘Chrissie Who’?!
But in some ways on a day to day basis nothing has changed at all. I still wake up, swim, bike run, eat and sleep. 7 days a week. I still wear that very non aero helmet, I still ride the P2. Despite have a bit more cash I am still in debt to my dad, which was about $70 at the last count. Which he hasn’t forgotten about…! And yes, I still don’t wear a hat or a visor – although I do now have sponsors that give me more hats and visors than I know what to do with, so email me if you can give some quality, unused head gear a good home!
So, the race…..wow….where do I start?! I went into this race feeling strong, but I certainly wasn’t taking anything for granted. The huge amount of amazing, record breaking performances at races this year have shown just how deep and strong the women’s ironman field is. And also, in Hawaii anything can happen. As i found out!"
