  • ROCKstar of the Month (July): Dawn Lee (@dawnlpc)
••••••••••••
"A few years ago, the year I turned 38, I suddenly felt that I had lost the sense of motivation and focus for my life. I realised I wasn’t taking good care of myself – I allowed my hair to grow out, I hardly bought new clothes for myself anymore. Some people might call it the ‘mid-life crisis’ and yes, I was searching for solitude and stability in my life.
•
My fitness hit rock bottom and I knew I needed to make some changes in my life. It was during this time that I picked up cycling and then a friend suggested that we should do a triathlon. At that time, I could only swim breaststroke and I almost collapsed on my first run. I could not run 1km without panting heavily! My face was so red that my friend thought that I was going to pass out.
•
But doing a triathlon sounded like fun to me, so I pressed on. What started from a mid-life crisis became an adventure. The highlight of my fitness journey was when I completed a half-Ironman race in 2015 – it was a dream I had since mid-2014.
•
I knew that I had to first overcome my fear of open water swimming and long distance running. And I was fortunate to make many like-minded friends who helped me along the way. Weekdays were filled with gym and running sessions; weekends were spent cycling on Saturdays and learning to swim freestyle in the open sea at East Coast on Sundays.
•
For someone who could only swim breaststroke and run less than 5km at that point, there was a lot of work to be done. In order not to disrupt my time with my family, I woke up at all kinds of unearthly hours to train. I did many things to motivate myself. One of the ways to avoid giving in to complacency was to sleep in my training gear. I would wake up, wash up, lace up my shoes and go. Even though the timing was nothing to shout about, the thrill of crossing the 70.3 finish line before the age of 40 was a dream come true for me."

This weekend, Dawn will be taking part in Challenge Iskandar (same distance as the Ironman 70.3) so let's cheer her on from here! #rockthenakedtruth #challengeiskandar #triathlon #triathlete #fitmummy

  • Women are emotional creatures but that is also a form of strength. Don't be afraid to be vulnerable at times, we are only human after all... so Long as you know when's the time to let go and move on. #rockthenakedtruth
  • Lady Gaga suffered from bulimia and anorexia since she was 15. She used to induce vomit after eating in high school. •
Then, she wasn't confident of her body and wanted to be a skinny little ballerina, but instead, she was a voluptuous little Italian girl whose dad had meatballs on the table every night. •
She used to come home and say, ‘Dad, why do you always give us this food? I need to be thin.’ And he’d say, ‘Eat your spaghetti.” •
Weight is still a struggle for Lady Gaga. She confessed that in every video she's in, every magazine cover, she was made perfect. But this is not in reality; it is unreal. She is against the idea of dieting. The dieting has got to stop. •
Everyone just knock it off she says! Because at the end of the day, it’s affecting kids your age — and it’s making girls sick. •
So in 2012, Lady Gaga decided to join the body revolution to "inspire bravery." Her public battle with eating disorders has spawned the creation of Gaga's project, "Body Revolution," which she describes as an "offensive against body-shaming." She also founded Born This Way Foundation with her mother, Cynthia Germanott. •
The inspiration behind the movement stemmed from the Born This Way Foundation, is to stop bullying and embrace individuality. “This profile is an extension of that dream: Be brave and celebrate with us your ‘perceived flaws,’ as society tells us. May we make our flaws famous, and thus redefine the heinous.” #rockthenakedtruth
  • Congrats @keanenlee on doing your first triathlon! ••••••••••••••••••
"I was first introduced into the world of multisport by my friends in @rockrunnerssg. Back then I was mesmerised by all the cool-looking bikes and not long after I got myself a bike. I was always interested in the idea of doing a triathlon because I loved the fact that it forces you well outside of your comfort zone and requires one to have a lot of grit to even complete the race. However, one of the main things that kept me from signing up for a triathlon was the swim. A little over a year ago I couldn’t swim. Eventually I learnt how to freestyle but was still unable to swim breaststroke/tread water. After attending a ROCKtri workshop introducing us to triathlons, I decided to take the plunge anyway.
•
Cycling and running were never an issue for me. I spent a little more time on my road bike and did my running sessions with the ROCKrunners. For the swim, I was really lucky to have Cheryl and Raynor from RR who taught me proper swimming techniques and drills for me to practice. Two weeks before the actual race day I went to Tanjong Beach for my very first open water swim. Though I was also supposed to have an open water swim trial a week before the actual race day, it was called off due to inclement weather. And thus I headed into the race with only one session of open water swim.
•
I didn’t want to give myself pressure for the swim so I really took my time. I swam so slow the next wave caught up but eventually I was so glad I was done with the swim. I spent my entire bike leg admiring other bikes and the run leg encouraging those who were really tired. I finished the race not in the best time but definitely in the best mood.
•
My first tri was a really good experience and I hope to do more in the future. My aim is to follow a training programme more strictly before attempting another race. Hopefully this way I’ll be much more prepared the race wouldn’t seem so daunting!" #rockthenakedtruth
