Blood, sweat and nearly tears. What a superb weekend in Donegal for my 7th of 10 charity triathlons with TRI10.
Hugely impressed with the Lakeside Msc Tri. It’s a gorgeous course, really well organised and set in stunning country, by a lake, surrounded by mountains and sea.
I loved the swim. My bike saddle killed me on the cycle which is odd because it was never that bad before; and it took all the energy out of me for the run. But I got around and I loved all the encouragement along the course, the ladies and fab kids at the water stop, and the two marshals who encouraged me to run up the last hill. I would have walked it if they hadn’t urged me on and I was delighted afterwards.
Overall I absolutely loved the experience.
Thanks also to TRI10 buddy and sponsor Jayne Orr for throwing open her home to us. It was wonderful to kick back and relax with the rest of the team.
Definitely want to come back to Donegal, and I actually think that I now want to do it all again. 😀
Don’t forget to support our charities! 😉 www.idonate.ie/tri10
