So, imagine this. . you are a couple of meters away from the finish line, on the biggest race of your life, and with a couple of ticks left on the clock. Will you quit? Succumb to pressure? Or if you’re like Mirian Joy Libre, aka Joyjoy, you dig deep, leave everything on the line, and sprint with all you got to the finish line?
We were at the final aid station of the 2014 Cobra Ironman 70.3 Philippines and we can still vividly remember Joy passing us and we cheered loudly for her.
