Race Report – Louth Triathlon

A successful race in as much as I loved it and came across the line with a smile on my face. The swim was calm and I was hugging a gorilla and was being a little teapot whilst blowing lots of bubbles, this may have fallen by the wayside, and I had a couple of […]

My Challenge, My Journey, My Ironman by Marcin Zimny AG 35-39

Three years ago I said I would never do a long distance triathlon and that’s just beyond my reach. A year later I brewed up a plan to start open water swimming and try olympic distance in year 1, middle in year 2 and finally the long distance in year 3. Knowing it’s so far […]

Morzine, 44 South 2016

A wonderful home for the week – cooked meal on the decking in the evening sunshine. Marcin always seemed to get a bigger helping than anyone else. With stunning views and wonderful company throughout the week, who could ask for anything more? Not to mention the amazing cafe stops, where one cake just isn’t enough […]

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.

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 […]
