How Triathlon Kept Me Sane from Depression

I went through depression for two years and it wasn’t something that I wanted to openly share to everyone.  Just like anyone who suffered from it, I continued to live life “normally” as I wanted other people to perceive without knowing the burden that I used to carry everyday.

Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon 2018

Hong Kong & Macau
