TL;DR: Help me achieve my dream!
In my 4 years of triathlon training I have only dreamed to race at the international stage, and now the dream has come true! The next big race will be the Multisport World Championships Aquabike event in Denmark in mid July, 2018. The Aquabike event is held in Odense, Denmark on July 14, 2018 (Saturday), and consists of a 3km swim followed by a 120km bike.
I have been following the base plans from Trainer Road since October 2017, and will be ramping training as I progress through the weeks. The goal is to build up to 10 hours a week of training ASAP. You can follow me on Strave here .
I have come quite a long way since my first triathlon at Toronto Triathlon Festival in 2014.
Even in my academic career, I had spent lots of time dreaming about tri, and actually got to work on it in a lab!
Turns out the trip is not going to be as affordable as I thought it would be (lump sum around $4000). As a graduating university student, I have been saving up for this trip, but OSAP debts are still haunting me. Thus I have resorted to ask for your generous help.
Here is the general breakdown of cost:
~$1200 for return flights (+luggages)
~$300 for bike associated costs (box rental, packing)
~$800 for accommodation (looking for Airbnb's)
~$1100 for race registration fees, team canada fees
I will be thinking of you and thanking you for your generosity for every time I train before I don the team Canada tri-suit. Every little bit helps!
