I did it! My first triathlon.

Sunday was the big day, my first triathlon – and I did it.

I managed the Super-Sprint at Eton Dorney in 2 hours 6 minutes & 55 seconds. Well within my target of 2 hours 20.

I’ll post a proper review soon but here are just a few pictures from the day.


The 400m swim was challenging (!)


The 21km bike ride was fast and flat but with a tricky wind across the lake.


I had to walk most of the 5km run due to my hip injury, but managed to sprint for the finish line.


It was great fun to take part with a team of fellow cancer survivors – 3 of us crossed the line together.


The all-important medal!

So far I’ve raised over £400 for Medecins sans Frontieres. I’d love to get to the £500 mark – you can sponsor me here:
