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 – IM70.3 UK

Having woken up to a beautiful sunshine on Saturday morning, I knew then I would be racing on good weather. Had something to eat and by 9am I was by the water for a 500m swim practice on the lake I would be racing the following day. The lake was considerably warm but what blew […]

Race Report – Hilpolsteiner Duathlon

This was supposed to be an ‘easy’ duathlon one considering it was just 8kms run, 30kms bike and 3kms run. Somehow however, things always get harder on the day. I had no plan except finishing but my mind had calculated a time around 1h55m. This was assuming a 5min/km for both runs and 30kms/h for […]
