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 […]

Race Report – Nottingham 10k

This time round I have been tied up with the triathlon training and had not done any specific 10k work since the Longhorn back in March, so was relying on the fitness gained from the 3 disciplines to get me round, along with my new running technique. Race morning was here far too quick and […]
