The journey to Ironman – Sarah Leuenberger
My name is Sarah, and I am a 37 year old mother of 2 girls (10 and 7). I work full-time in finance at a law firm and am a part-time uni student. I have been cycling for about 6 years and it’s my absolute passion in life. I got into cycling when my second child was about one.
The law firm I work for was entering a corporate triathlon and I really wanted to give it a go. The distances were very small, a 300m swim, 10km cycle and 4km run. I dusted off my husband’s Mongoose mountain bike and went out to have a crack. My swim went well (as I was always a swimmer) my ride went ok-ish and my run, well let’s just say it was a 4km walk, pant, try not to die effort.
Nonetheless, the adrenaline I felt after the triathlon was like a drug, I was hooked, and I wanted more. I did a couple more enticer triathlons and decided the cycling thing was really fun, so I made the financial investment of getting my first road bike.
The story of my Graves disease and how it has affected my life and my family – Dan Beresford
In 2019 I planned to have a big year on the bike and to target the Crocodile Trophy which was my big goal in October. The year was going well and my racing was the best its ever been. I got so fit I finally won my masters category and got 8th Overall at the AMB100 in Canberra, also coming second overall in the bigfoot marathon 2 weeks earlier. So I was very much ready for the 8-day stage race in Queensland called the Crocodile Trophy (the longest-running MTB marathon stage race in the world). I had an absolute cracker of a race by winning 7 stages in my Category but suffering a mechanical on stage 3 cost me a 5 hr time penalty. I managed to claw my way back up the GC standings by the end of the race and stood on the podium in second place in my Category and 19th overall. A far cry from my 4th Overall in the 2017 and first Australian!
