David Stuart travelled to Fort William on Sat 17th mar. to take part in the No Fuss Events Wee Triathalon. This was Davids first attempt at a triathalon and consisted of a 400m swim,10mile MTB ride and a 3mile run.
The swim was held in heats in the pool with David in heat 5 finishing his swim in a time of 8.14mins. Then the entrants were given a race number in order of their swim times and set of on the bike leg at the relevant time gaps. Setting of at number 31 on the bike leg David made good progress through the field and by the time he came back into transition he was up to 16th place albeit with several riders coming in just behind him.
A poor transition ( you would think by 41 years old I could get my shoes off and trainers on easily ) saw most of the people who followed him into the change pass me and out onto the run. The run was going fine until the first uphill section where David's legs tried to give up, pushing on David eventually managed to finish in 36th place out of 67 .
