This weekend didn’t go as I had planned… Continue reading “CRASHING OUT”
For the third consecutive year, I raced Outlaw Half Triathlon in Nottinghamshire. Entries for the event sold-out in less than two minutes when the race went on sale last August and both my brother and I were lucky to bag entries for this 1900m swim, 91km bike and 21.1km run (half-ironman distance) triathlon.

I previously raced this event in 2013 and, being new to triathlon at that time, I had made several mistakes in training and racing. I felt like I had to come back to give this race another crack.
