Newsletter June 2024  -  Part 2    (Addendum)

You probably spotted my error - but how on earth did I forget two of the more important triathlons of the season so far?   Oh well … 

Tonbridge triathlon on early May Bank Holiday Monday was one of the wettest events I have ever been to.  But it didn’t stop an intrepid team of Theo, Kevin and Me from doing it.  Theo plucked up courage to complete her first triathlon for a long time (she had done Bewl a few years ago).  This was a test of endurance with stair-rod rain all day, and after a small mishap in the run she finished what was certainly a baptism of rain.  Well done to Kevin who completed the whole event without any problems.  I just remember being soaked, and noticing I had puddles in my cycle shoes whilst out on the ride.  It was very cold.  My run was a mission and not very well executed.  But we all finished, and survive to race another day.  

East Grinstead Tri in mid May is part of the Triathlon England South East (TESE) Region Club Senior Series for 2024.

It was a beautiful, sunny and warm start.  A great enthusiastic team from the club consisted of  JoJo, Diana, Christine, and Botts.  Sarah took on the swim/bike event.  There were some great times, great racing and great smiles all round.  

Sarah's swim/bike race went well, and apart from some deer and rabbits sharing the bike route and causing some alarm, everything was good.  

Leanne (Dean's wife) and her friend Hannah also did their first race in the Tri-a-Tri. They did so well, and seemed to  really enjoy it.  Maybe we will see more of these two next year.
