Read what she has to say.
So after yesterday’s blog where I reported that the weather was overcast and therefore slightly cooler, this morning was HOT again! The sun was back with a vengeance! It was extremely hot and steamy on my run, and I was starting to freak out about what’s in store for me on Saturday. It’s a bit of a comfort to remember that living in Cairns, we are probably better prepared for that type of weather than most other athletes from cooler climates.
I got a bit carried away when deciding on what nutrition to buy for the race, and decided to spend a small fortune purchasing many samples of the unlimited numbers of flavors of energy gels and bars available here.
We enjoyed a lovely dinner out again tonight with a few other Team Oz athletes. We are very much enjoying working our way around the many restaurants and cafes Kona has to offer.
