T minus 2 hours
Then I’m off 🏊🏻
My numbers have been checked, my timing chip collected and my bike racked in the huge, cavernous, hanger like space that is home to the London Triathlon weekend.
It’s a throng of Lycra and neoprene clad, multi sized bodies to a sound track of excited chatter, well oiled cycle mechanisms and pulsing beats from the PA.
I’ve acquired the free gels and attached my number to the belt – to displayed to the back for the cycle and to the front for the run.
I’ve had a look at the transitions and the routes in and out. Most importantly I have my bearings on the finish.
Here we go!
