Blithfield standard distance triathlon, 31st July 2011

Krissie Newton writes >

Blithfield was my first standard distance triathlon, consisting of a stunning 1.5k open water swim in the morning sun around Blithfield reservoir, a scenic 40k bike section around the Staffordshire countryside and a not so enjoyable rutted and rocky 10k run section which my racing flats did not appreciate. I very much enjoyed the whole event and was pleased to only drop one position in my age category from the swim to bike, as the bike section is usually a disaster for me. Overall results:

Total time - 2.40.42
Overall position - 140th / 6th in category
