30 Bananas a Day!

 Just wanted to share that I kicked arse today in the most demanding race I have ever done.

 Iv'e actually not competed in anything for about 14 years. This was my first competition being high carb vegan. The guys on the line up looked the business, and I thought I had no chance against, they wearing all the proper gear. I was doing it for fun !

 I was apprehensive about my fitness levels, and putting vegan juice to the test ! 

The gun went off and I found myself in the front pack ... unfortunately the marshalls made a mistake with the signs, and we headed in the wrong direction, making the front pack become the last pack ... I thought that was it ... never gonna catch up now !

 BUT slowly slowly I started to pull on through ... and one by one I skipped through back. All the while thinking " Ive got fruit fuel " ... at one point, people were really tiring, and I had to question myself because I had so much juice still, so I sailed by them. Dont get me wrong, it was not easy, I struggled in so many parts of this race, BUT I was really quickly able to recover.

 Such a great feeling to go from the back of the pack, seeing people way off in the distance, and then slowly but surly over take them, smiling to myself and thinking go fruit go fruit go fruit go ... For my first ever long distance off terrain race, I was pleased to finish 3rd, especially as I would of been happy just to finish it !

anyways I just wanted to share that for the people who waver to think if fruit gives enough fuel !

this is not my race, but one like it ....  it looks easier than it is from this clip, but gives you an idea. At one point i was in sinking mud past my thighs, water pretty cold too.
