From the moment Mark informed me that I had been selected, it was a bit of a whirlwind of preparation with team days, training sessions and planning! Whilst it is up to every individual to ensure they are ready for the event, the support team were always on hand to answer questions and guide us in the right direction. This meant that when I stepped onto the coach to travel to Spain, myself and Coco were both fit, healthy and ready for the event.
At every stage the support team were with us. They ensured my mental game was on form, I had my course plans, that the team warm up was effective, and that Coco was properly warmed-up. They got us onto that line ready to go and were there to celebrate with us or forget any disappointments. Whilst my runs may not have gone to plan, the support from the whole team made such a difference in how I handled it. Having Maria (Team Physio) and Hana (Team Vet) treat Coco immediately helped her recover quickly.
