This is an odd picture & one of my most awkward moments. I will start with my personal quote, ‘To enjoy life to its fullest, find inner peace, happiness & joy, one must be able to laugh at themselves.’ I am known to laugh & to be found in ridiculous situations. Here I am, receiving a massive hunk of cheese having absolutely no idea how I am the Continental Cup winner & ushered to get up on the podium where I absolutely do not belong, beside the 3 incredible women who actually deserve that podium right. Let’s be clear, I was many minutes behind... but hey, I now have cheese for days & a ridiculous story.
Today I did my 1st XC 30k World Cup. It was beastly hard. The body didn’t quite respond how I’d hoped but I fought with what I had today. So much so that my body went into shock after the finish & in this photo I could barely smile because my jaw was chattering, my body was shaking/shivering & a sudden drop in BP. I was a mess. And then had random anti-doping control just to add to the day... #whataday#makesforagoodstory#justlaugh#30k#whatanexperience#cheesewin#awkwardmoment#gladthatsover#sufferfest
