I enjoy an easy jog. In the mountains, or the forest with my own thoughts, I can escape from the world for a bit.
It's weird because before a race, I always want something sweet, like a cake, but afterwards, I crave something salty, like pizza.
My aortic valve was a bit different than normal, and some doctors thought I shouldn't do triathlons.
Although I come from the world of swimming... my strong point is the running race, and it is the one I enjoy the most. It's where I have had a slight edge over my rivals.
I have to have routine check-ups every three to six months. While the cardiologists think I can compete, there is no problem. I didn't consider quitting. Once the cardiologists said I could run, I decided to fight.
