The morning came far to early this morning and before I knew it I was up, dressed and ready for my 1st race for my new triathlon club. It was the final meet of the cross country season, 5 mile track around the reservoir and back home. This is my first competitive event since I played rugby to a high standard about 10 years ago. I do have a competitive streak in me so I was going to give it my all. I had to register when I arrived at the event it felt funny, going to a table in the corner, saying my name and running for a club.. me... running for a club. It was only £4 (it could have been £2 if I was registered with Wales Athletics) but I didn't mind paying it for my first turn out for Celtic Tri. There was a good turn out from the club but I was the only one without a team vest :(
11am on the dot the starter got the race off and away I went. I went out pretty quick but I was coping with it, I knew I could go out quick as it was only 5 miles. I averaged a 7.11 minute mile and I felt the burn after the 3rd mile into the breeze. I kept going as I wasn't to make that impression on my 1st event. I finished with a 36 minute 5 mile race and I've hit my 100 miles today to. I really enjoyed the race and the team community I cant wait for the next event.
I mention to the team organiser that I didn't have a vest and I felt left out, she opened the boot of her car and passed me one, I was well chuffed... But my wallet was £20 lighter :)
