MOSCOW: ”I could not swim, bike or even run properly. I only did some yoga before,’’ said Anna, 32, who just finished a half-Iron Man race in Ireland after starting her training in March.
Anna said she signed up for the race at the request of her company, Moscow Exchange, the Russian security market.
”When I started, my body was like the car of first year driver – scratched around. I wanted to give up sometimes, but I felt that I’m a part of a team.”
”Now I am running and swimming on Friday evening and waking up at 7am on Saturday morning to go cycling. If you told me five years ago I would be doing this, I would have never believed you.’’
