I’m having another go at triathlon!

A few years back I had a lot of fun going from a pie scoffing slob who couldn’t swim to finishing an Olympic distance triathlon in about six months.

After I found out there was a new triathlon event in London which covered the same course as the triathlon at the London 2012 Olympics I thought it was about time to dust off my wet suit.

It’s a bit annoying that I have to use the sponsor name all the time but the London Triathlon is a different event so I have to stick to saying “Dextro Energy” all the time. Other energy providers are available. Below you can see a video of how the big boys did it last year.

The triathlon will involve a 1500m open water swim (in the Serpentine), 40km cycle and a 10km run. The course is mostly in Hyde Park but also passes outside Buckingham Palace. Click on the map below to get a better idea of the course.

I thought while I was at it I would try to raise a few quid for New Life Mexico which is a British Charity that supports children and young people in Mexico who have been physically, sexually or emotionally abused. I’m trying to raise ¬£200 which will be enough to provide an education for one of these young people for a year.
