1st place – 1:53:32
The end of September was a serious stretch of time ago, and yet that was the last time I raced an event. The year started in a familiar fashion, with a useful stint in my home from home over the years – Aguilas, Spain. I had a further training trip to the Canary Isles, spending some time on both Lanzarote and Fuertaventura which went perfectly well save for me getting a little too aquainted with the tarmac during a run. – I stupidly tripped over my very own feet and did a Superman dive, giving me some frustratingly nasty cuts to my hands and an achey shoulder for my troubles. It could’ve been worse though; no broken bones.
With that behind me, I looked forward to starting the year off with a race at home here in Stirling – the Scottish Duathlon Championships over a 10/40/5k non draft format hosted by Stirling Tri Club. It’s a superb event; extremely well organised and complete with a friendly and supportive atmosphere – give it a try next year!
