HyVee Elite Cup – Des Moines 2010

I was pretty excited for this race win, I’d had a lot of ups and downs since the end of 2009, my body was sending me signs in all sorts of ways, but athletes primed for this race like a ‘major event’ because of the prize money on the line. I struggled throughout the swim and bike, having quite a deficit going onto the run, however the years of training pulled me through and I managed to still come away with the win. I certainly felt like I has lost some strength, but my training was becoming more and more sporadic in between bouts of sickness. Events and organisers like this have really risen the bar for prize money of this kind and I’m grateful that I had the opportunity to compete and win this race for the 2nd time.
