Cleveland Short Course Triathlon June 2014

1500m open water swim, 40k bike ride and a 9k cross country run…

Competing in the 50-60 year old category I came 8th out of 21, which is better than I expected. The water was quite cold and I seem to be a bit disorientated judging by this picture! Out of 130 entrants I was 49th out of the water, 43rd fastest on the bike, but lost it on the run (as usual) finishing 86th. Overall I was 59th which I was pleased about. It was 10 minutes faster than the time I did two years ago.

For Christmas I want a time trial bike and a new pair of running legs!
