For those of you who don’t know, I work for a sports events company! We organise triathlons, duathlons and half marathons! This weekend was our biggest event of the year, the Outlaw Triathlon! Which is a 2.4 mile swim, 112mile bike and 26.2 mile run!
Now I am not saying that watching the athletes take part and cross the finish line has inspired me to complete an outlaw, but it really has inspired me to get back to training and entering events.
I know it sounds cheesy but watching people who have spent months and months training and preparing their bodies for the event and finally crossing the finish line is really inspirational. Even though they all look like they’re in agony it really made me want to push myself again and have that feeling.
So far I have completed the London marathon, the Humber Bridge half marathon, a couple of 10k’s, a few 5K’s, and two sprint triathlons.
I would love to do another half marathon, and as many triathlons as I can! I am actually quite tempted to increase the distance and try to complete a standard distance tri.
So, with that in mind I’ve got a little bit of research to see what races are left this year and at the start of next year. This is what I found:
I would like to know what you’ve got on your Race calendar for the remainder of the year and what you’d like to take on next year
