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. That’s where it all began for me, … Continue reading Ironman World Championship 2018 – Run

Ironman World Championship 2018 – Bike

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.

**(Ironman UK preview blog here)** Ever since I got into triathlon, there was one race that I’ve always wanted to be a part of. It takes place in Kona, Hawaii; the Ironman World Championships.
