My 2012 Charity: Jessica June Children’s Cancer Foundation

RSR 38 – The start of the trilogy races

Episode number 38 of my triathlon training diary…. Tomorrow starts the first of the Trilogy racing series for me.  This should be pretty exciting as it is one of the shorter sprint triathlons and should be a pretty fast race.  In the past two weeks I have been coming off the “high” from the Alcatraz […]
