Saturday 14th August – Lakeland Triathlon

Report from Karen Best:

It was the Lakeland Triathlon on Saturday and this was both our first open water event and standard distance triathlon. As you can imagine we were somewhat nervous.

The weather was glorious although the sun did little to heat the lake up! The views on both the bike and run were stunning… yes, I had time to look and maybe that combined with my novice transition times cost me a few places. Never mind my transition times I think Lloyd had his hair straightners with him!

I was third FV40 and twelfth lady overall (I’ll also ditch the hair and toe drying next time).

Our overall results and oh, I guess we have to give those splits as well, are from and the overall event was won by Chris Joyce ( in 02:04:05.

Lloyd is being a man about being beaten by wifey!
