Back in business after 2 years away from competition. Started the season with a win at National Age Group Sprint Championships , closely followed by winning the overall age group female race at Windsor Triathlon. Super happy with this as my time was the same as 4 years ago when I was racing well at olympic distance.
All this came before my main race of the year IM Switzerland, where I won the 40-44yrs age group in 10.38.23….with 12 seconds to spare. This gave me a Kona slot, but as I am age-ing up next year to 45-49yrs [OMG!] I will wait until next year. Of course that involves another 10 hrs of pain somewhere in the world but I am happy to wait. Such an amazing moment to achieve this after a fairly bumpy return from injury / underperformance syndrome. read more
