Another year, another inspirational event at Taupo! Sports Massage after any event is often a godsend when it comes to recovery, none more so than the amazing feat that is an Ironman triathlon. When people come into the massage tent afterwards I feel privileged to be the first one to see them, even before family and friends get a hold on their athlete. Many will be to exhausted to talk, so just a gently flushing out of lactic acid and a chill out on the massage table is what we do. Others are buzzing with excitement and so proud of what they have just achieved that the massage therapist will be the first to hear the blow-by-blow account of every minute of the race with every challenge encountered along the way. Either way I can never help myself, but get totally emotional at watching the last precious few cross the finish line before the midnight cut off time. Never, but never have I not cried my eyes out watching the joy and the agony take place down the finish shoot to hear Mike Reilley call out: ‘ YOU ARE AN IRONMAN!’
With this in mind I proudly salute you : Well done to all my fabulous friends and customers JANNA, JOHN, PAUL D., Paul Be., Paul Bo., KATH , BRENT, Pinga, Warrick, Sean, Jason and particular the incredible Fraser Sharp and all the GO2Max team of Walther Thorburn , you are amazing and see you at Ironman Moloolabah 🙂
