Since my last entry I have taken part in the JLL Property Triathlon Event at Lake on 3 July 2015 representing Montagu Evans.
Alongside several colleagues from the Planning department, I completed the duathlon event (run 5km, cycle 21.2km & run another 2.5km), which was my first ever attempt at an event of this kind.
The day was a glorious one, even with a 5.30am start to get to there for the 8am kick-off. The challenge was quite tough, however I completed the first 5k with a personal best of 22.46. The 21.2k cycle leg I completed in 43.53, and the final 2.5k (completed on a wobbly set of jelly legs) took 13:12. All in all, I finished 63rd out of 179 competitors with an overall time (including transition) of 1:22:52. The photo below is quite accurate in displaying how I felt after completing the event… Bring on next year!
