Wales Triathlon, Fishguard – Simon


This was near where we always holiday so ideal for us. It was a half ironman with a sea swim,; the weather was ideal, sunny but not too hot. It started at an early 7am. I had a great swim finishing 8th place, then 56 miles on the bike moving up to to 6th place, then a 13 mile run, where believe it or not I did well up to 10 miles where I hit the wall and had a very slow last 3 miles where to my total surprise Mike Pfeiffer came past me (the guy from Builth running club), did not know he did Tri’s! Anyway I finished in 8th place overall out of 303, claiming 3rd vet 40-50 in my cat, so very pleased; time was 5.10. Very tough hilly course especially the run, which was all hills !!!
