Last week I raced ocean Lava, what a great event it was.  If you like Triathlon and dont have so much on early November next year, come across!  Stay at SandsBeach Resort then race Ocean Lava, a well organised Triathlon event with either an Olympic distance or Half to choose from.
Right on the Ironman Lanzarote swim, bike and Run course.

This year after having won my "retirement race" Challenge Henley, I have been busy with coaching and of course looking after Charlie, but each day when I had the opportunity to train, I did some short training sessions so I could have fun at Ocean Lava.  

It was very special to be part of another great event here on Lanzarote.

I tried to stay on the feet of Saleta Castro which I did for 1 lap but I could'nt hold onto her for the 2nd lap, 

The bike was great fun, taking on the best bits of Lanzarote just in 90km!  I past Saleta and Nicole at about 15km on the bike.  I enjoyed leading the womens race untill 80km but then Maja Stage ruined my fun by passing me giving me not one single second to go with her.  Maja then ran really well and took a well deserved win.

On the run it was great, so much support from everyone watching, 
ThankYou for helping me to have a fun race!

And get better soon James Mitchell and Till Shenck who managed to really hurt themselves by riding as fast as they could into different walls on the bike course!

See you at the races,
