England result at Holme (Pierpoint) – Team Relays Race Report

It all started when Tony said ‘how do you fancy a weekend in Nottingham in August?’ oh yes I thought, it’s a great place for shopping ‘it’s the National Triathlon relay weekend and Ollie is organising teams from Lincsquad.

Anna Gibbs playing chicken with geese at Team Relays.

Standing brushing my teeth on Sunday morning I looked into the mirror to see an equally nervous and sick looking Shona behind me, half an hour later Julie wandered across with Tony towards our tent looking green.
