That didn’t completely happen. I finished the swim and onto the bike, where I was in an accident with multiple other bikers and wasn’t able to finish. I have 12 stiches in my hand, where the stem of my tired punctured the skin. I took an ambulance ride to the emergency room, thus, ending my first New York City Triathlon.
If I can offer one piece of advice, and one thing I am determined to is this, “Do not give up. Keep trying and you will achieve what you set out to do.”
I trained too long to let this accident prevent me from finishing, so this weekend I am going to run the Rock and Roll half marathon in Chicago.
I will cross the finish line no matter what!!!
