2010 Ironman UK: 3 from 3!

Thursday, August 5th, 2010

Ironman was something I have always been in awe of since I started to race triathlon – the distances alone are pretty crazy when you sit down and actually think about them! – but from the start of the year Ironman UK has been a firm target for me and that ensured I was always looking forward […]

TriAthy Olympic 2009

Sunday, May 31st, 2009

It’s taken a while, but I was able to get back to winning ways and defend my 2008 title yesterday at the TriAthy Triathlon in Athy, Ireland. Despite there being plenty to improve upon, the result marks a positve step in the right direction for me as the season rolls on in earnest.

Fraser won Tri Athy 2009. “TriAthy was a success I defended my title from last year. Gutted for @gavontwitt who punctured at 5k into the bike. Lovely weather” More info will follow…

Florida Ironman 70.3, Disney World

Monday, May 18th, 2009

I didn’t finish today and I am not really in the mood to write an extensive report on the subject to tell the truth. It is just really frustrating right now. I was looking forward to moving another step towards full fitness, and had hoped to get myself a top 10 or better, which would’ve been […]

St Anthony’s Triathlon 2009

Sunday, April 26th, 2009

Just a quick race update from this morning here in St Petersburg – 14th place, 1:53:16. My leg didn’t hurt either (well, they collectively ‘hurt’ as a pair, but my sore spot didn’t hurt!) – and that is progress in the land-of-Fraser right now, let me tell you. (And I even outsplit the fastest girl on […]

Ironman 70.3 South Africa 2009

Tuesday, January 20th, 2009

So the racing has begun – 2009 is well under way and I’m delighted to have kicked it off with a 2nd place on Sunday in Buffalo City, East London. I started to get a little ahead of myself around 30k on the bike – got a tad excited shall I say, as I reckoned […]

Ironman UK 2008

Tuesday, September 9th, 2008

Well, i didn’t finish. Just to clear that one out of the way. Unhappy? Of course. Stiff and sore today? Aye. But not really much worse than if i had emptied the tank racing a 70.3. My point being? Simply that i was never going to ruin the end of my season by simply finishing an Ironman, […]

Countdown to Ironman UK 2008

Thursday, September 4th, 2008

It’s Thursday morning and we’ll head off down the road in the general South West direction a bit after lunchtime. Blair and i are thumbing a lift with our great friends/second family/often-helpers-in-a-bind/supporters and most recently providers of transport (alas, the Clio died a death and we had to scrap it…. but thankfully there was a Punto going spare for […]
