Race 3 of 9 Slateman Duathlon

Wow, what a great event! I think that sets the scene for my thoughts on my exploits up in North Wales at the Slateman Sprint Duathlon. For someone that has never been a fan of hills, trails or fast bike descents, training for and then racing this event rather took me out of my comfort […]

6 of 6 Crashed and [Wo]Burned

Last Saturday, all tattooed and keen, I made my to Woburn for the ‘Woburner Middle Distance’ race. Full of big hopes, feeling very good about it, and actually on top of my game. Confident that I knew what I was supposed to be doing. The old body felt like it was in good enough shape […]
