Race Report – 70.3 IM Staffs

We had a really great weekend at 70.3 IM Staffs. Weather could have been better but I don’t think it impacted me to any great extent but would have been better for friends and family. On the whole though a really great event – in some ways slicker than other events I’ve done, certainly more “pizzazz” and excitement […]

Race Report – Frankfurt IRONMAN European Championships 2016

This was my A-race for 2016 and my first full distance ironman. Since I have moved to Germany recently I had decided to register for the European Championships in Frankfurt and I don’t regret it. This race was not only this year’s A-race but something I have been wanting to do since I started triathlon […]

Race Report – Leeds Triathlon

I entered Leeds for the experience of riding on closed roads on the same route as the elites. The organisation was pretty confusing, but I loved the whole day! It took me some time to get my head around registration and the two transitions and we did end up driving in circles around Leeds city […]

Race Report – 2016 Ironman 70.3 Exmoor

I decided last January to book a race after the outlaw as my second half distance. I know now why it was perhaps easy to pick up a place. Exmoor Wimbleball ironman by many experts is the toughest 70.3 out there and I at the tender age of 54 had decided to do it, oblivious […]

Rcae Report – IRONMAN 70.3 Kraichgau

This was my last race before this year’s A race: the European IRONMAN Championships in Frankfurt next month. Due to a conflict of family events I ended up going alone to the race on Friday and staying two nights in a local hotel until Sunday, race day. This gave me time to rest, explore and […]

Race Report – Outlaw Half Ironman

I completed the Outlaw Half for the third time last weekend.. It is a fabulous race – really well organised and friendly. Being a local race, you can usually be sure of lots of pockets of support around the course, and the fact that Absolute mans one of the feed stations guarantees you a big […]

Race Report – Llanelli Elite Junior Super Series

It was my first experience of a simulated beach run in start, to which I managed to gain clear space. The nature of the swim course meant it was 2 laps, where I made up places on the run back into the water.  After the quickest female T1, I became a member of the main […]

Race Report – Llanelli Elite Junior Super Series

The race started well, I had a good run in from the beach and a good sprint which got me into the top 10 at the beginning of the swim, but then when I got to the first buoy I started to fatigue and by the end of the first lap I was about 25th […]

Rcae Report – Baur Triathlon [Duathlon]

As usual this couldn’t be a normal race. Something had to happen and so it did. As expected, here in Germany, the race would start at 13.30 and so I made sure I had a relaxed morning and would be there early enough to register and rack. As I arrived, I soon found I had […]
