Perspective is probably the only word I can use to describe how I felt post race. From feelings of achievement to utter shock in the matter of minutes as I heard that a fellow runner/athlete had been receiving CPR on the course and finally to bewilderment when I found out that he had passed away, it wasn't his first half, he was a fit guy and was only 25!!!
My thoughts are with his family and friends. I'm sure if you know the family you would have heard so I'm not going to post his name just in case you haven't - I wouldn't want my blog being where you heard it first.
Report to come in a few days
- As an ex-National League Basketball player I took up triathlon as a development from cross training. I won my first Sprint distance race and placed second in my first Olympic distance. Since then I have raced the UK Elite Superseries coming 24th in the National Elite Champs, raced Vegas 70.3 WChamps and helped Paratriathlete Iain Dawson to World, European and National Titles. In 2011 I obtained Pro authorisation from the BTF and am pushing my development by stepping up to top level competition in 2012. Aside from this I am a L1 Swim and Tri coach and Professional Lloyds Broker.
