...I might be able to say that I am Triathlete!!! First timer at Nantwich tomorrow (and when I say first timer I don't just mean first time at Triathlon but first time at ANY sporting event EVER in 32 years of being alive (not counting school sports days in which I was rubbish!!!). I still can't believe that 2 years ago I was 5 stone heavier and didn't do any exercise at all!
I really REALLY think I can do it! And that's because my boyfriend is incredibly supportive, my friends and parents have been fab and people on here have also been really nice, supportive and helpful. I am so thankful for all of that!
So, if you're going to be at Nantwich tomorrow please give me a hello and a cheer (No. 544!) as I'm probably going to be rather grateful for the support!!! My amazing boyfriend is cheering me on too so that'll make a big difference - it's actually him who got me involved in Triathlon but usually I'm the cheerleader and he's doing all the hard work!
I am very nervous, pretty excited and even though I know I'll be one of the slowest (and certainly one of the least fit!). The swim and bike will be veeeeery slow and the run will mostly be walked I think but I do feel confident that I will do it and for me that's going to be a huge achievement that a year ago I really would never have imagined possible!
Exciting times ahead!!!
Enjoy every moment.
enjoy yourself, have a great time and you will feel amazing when you cross that finish line!
I did it!!!
2 Hours 10 Mins, which is really slow but I don't care - I finished!!! Found the bike and run hard in the heat, but absolutely delighted and feeling really proud of myself
Marvellous Leanne, you do know where this is all leading.
well done Leanne, doesn't matter how fast/slow you are, it is taking part and finishing that counts.
planning another yet?
Great stuff - well done Leanne. And in this heat too so be proud.
Well done Leanne!! Great effort!! What's next?!?
Very well done Leanne, sod the time, you did it !!!
Glad you enjoyed your first time.
Nice one. I can feel the bug coming on to you now!!
Awesome, well done
lol - well my first thought was "next time I'll be faster". So, I felt like rubbish, I was hot, sweaty, uncomfortable and just needed a lie down...and I was already thinking about the next time! I think there might be something wrong with me ;p
