I decided to quit Smoking and Took up Triathlon in 2005 as a reason to stay fit, 10 years on I've spent money I've saved on lycra, bikes and pointy hats

Fowlmead Duathlon (1.9m,10m,1.9m)

trilifedbby trilifedbApr 4th 2011
1.9m Gravel run, 10m - 5 laps on tarmac purpose built cycle track, then 1.9m gravel run again

I'd done this once before back in 2007 so had a time to beat 59:41
I turned up full of snot with a cold and finished 20th out of 45 in 54:41 so a perfect 5 min's better than in 2007, what other sport can you get better at as you get older? Golf/Fishing don't count !!
There were free cakes after too!
Really nice race organised by Deal Tri and only £3.

7 Stu Mcleod 49:33
20 Dan Butler 54:41
32 Richard JAmes 1:02:31
40 Clare Mcleod 1:06:58
43 Moira Butler 1:11:40

Kids had somewhere to play in the new playground, Thankyou Cath for looking after them.
Deal Tri are doing a summer series on Wed's eve fingers crossed I'll get along to a few.
Next winter I'll aim to do more of the winter series too.

Now to shake this cold off and taper for London Marathon, after that It'll be time to swim outside again....
