Portaloos, pork pies and being chased by waves of men – its Emma Watts Vitruvian race report!

So this was my 3rd attempt at a half iron man distance triathlon. My 1st was Grafman in May last year which was just a ‘get round’ then my 2nd at Steelman in July this year. I’d had a strong swim followed by a strong bike leg but fell apart on the run. Despite being able to comfortably run half marathon distance on its own it had proven to be a real challenge after a 1.2 mile swim and 56 mile bike.

Halls well for Team Hall at Vitruvian

On Saturday 9th of September both myself and Neil took part in the Vitruvian half iron distance triathlon along with quite a few other lincsquadders. I raced as part of a team, whereas Neil braved the whole thing.

So for those of you who don’t know where vitruvian is raced, it is based in and around the beautiful Rutland waters. The swim is a 2 lap swim, followed by a 2 lap bike which circles around rutland waters through the local villages, then the run is 2 laps running on the pathway that surrounds the lake. It’s a very spectator friendly race, with plenty of opportunity to see the racers and cheer them on. Read the rest of this entry »
