Challenge Lisboa 2020 -
Kick Off Camp, Ghent 🇧🇪 🏊🏼♂️ 🚲 🏃🏻♂️ .
When I returned to work at the beginning of this year, I discovered that my employer had launched an international challenge where some of my colleagues from all over the globe had entered and been training for and an Olympic distance triathlon in Lisbon, Portugal. I was absolutely gutted to be missing such an incredible opportunity, but followed the journey intently and supported my friends from the UK taking part.
When it was announced a few months later that they would be running the event again, I jumped at the chance to enter. I’m told over 300 of us were bonkers enough to enter and spaces were limited - only 12 from the UK, and the remaining places to be taken by our colleagues in Belgium, France, Portugal and Asia. We all had to write a supporting application, expressing our reason for entering. A month or so ago now, I was then given the amazing news that I had been successful and would be one of the UK triathletes taking part in the Challenge Lisboa event next year in Lisbon, Portugal!
A couple of weeks ago, all the triathletes got together for the first time for an extended weekend “kick off camp” in Ghent, Belgium.
What can I say other than I have come away feeling so motivated and inspired to better myself physically and mentally with the will to support my team mates achieve their own personal goals and challenges.
