IN THE THICK OF IT

220 Triathlon Magazine - - YOUR EMAILS & PICTURES -

I’m writ­ing to let you know that I’m no longer a triathlon vir­gin (you printed my email in the Fe­bru­ary is­sue)! I’ve since done Merthyr Sprint Triathlon and Merthyr Tri Club Duathlon, and I have to say what amaz­ing ex­pe­ri­ences. Both bril­liantly run events and ev­ery­one so en­cour­ag­ing. You hear this from other first-timers but you never quite un­der­stand un­til you’re in the thick of it. I’m plan­ning on an­other cou­ple be­fore the sea­son ends and have also pur­chased a wet­suit so I can push my­self in open wa­ter as well as longer events next sea­son. Alan Monks
