220 Triathlon Magazine - - Feature - He­len Webster

Triathlon can be a head-down solo pur­suit at times, but it doesn’t al­ways need to be. If you’ve got a friend or part­ner that wants to get in­volved, but isn’t ready for the full event, then a re­lay is the per­fect way to share the fun. One of my most mem­o­rable race ex­pe­ri­ences was at Iron­man 70.3 Wey­mouth. My friend re­cently had a baby and was only bike-fit, so I got to do a beau­ti­ful sun­rise swim, soaked up the at­mos­phere while she did the bike, then took over again for the half­marathon. We cheered each other on and had a blast!
