Challenge Roth – 07/07/2019

Challenge Roth is one of the biggest triathlons in the world. It’s been running since 1984, taking place in the small town of Roth, near Nuremberg, in Germany.

Ironman World Championship 2018 – Run

**This is the 3rd post detailing my race at the 2018 Ironman World Championships. You can find the swim here and the bike here** Excellent. We (me physically, you mentally) have successfully negotiated the swim and the bike, with just my bread and butter to come. The run.

To be fair, there’s nothing wrong with Richmond Park - it’s just not quite Hawaii. After getting through the ordeal that was taking … Continue reading Chicago – Part 1

For the one of the first times in my life, I found myself injured in the immediate aftermath of the race, … Continue reading Road to Kona – 5 weeks to go

Ironman UK; the improved version. A view from the inside, by Katie Lysons

Katie (my long suffering girlfriend) has written a much shorter, funnier report on what really went down this year at Ironman UK. I'll get my coat... Aloha Team, I don't normally do this kind of thing, but I thought I could make an exception for a small achievement. England didn't win the World Cup, but … Continue reading Ironman UK; the improved version. A view from the inside, by Katie Lysons
