Since be­ing talked into do­ing our first tri a year ago, me and my mates have com­pleted sev­eral sprint and Olympic events.

But I just wanted to write in and say how proud I am of the com­plete strangers who sup­port us at ev­ery event; our other halves for com­plet­ing their first Olympic re­lay with phe­nom­e­nal times for ev­ery dis­ci­pline; my lit­tle brother who is achingly close to age-group qual­i­fi­ca­tion; and my mate, who first talked me into the sport, for do­ing his first half-Iron­man.

I know I’m go­ing to be even prouder in 2018 as our group’s old­est kids start rac­ing with their par­ents. If you’re start­ing out on this jour­ney, know that tri will change your life for the bet­ter. Stu­art Han­d­ley
