The clinic had 2 competitors taking part in the competition. Elizabeth Waller was racing to raise money for charity and Andy Bray was racing to see how well he could do.
The 400m swim at the YMCA St Annes swimming pool very went well for both participants. The swim was Libby’s strongest event which she excelled in. Andy also had an impressive round in the pool.
Next up was the 12miles bike ride. Thankfully the winds were none existent. Andy is a seasoned pro when it comes to triathlon and he certainly looked the part on the bike! It was Libby’s first ever triathlon so had a slightly different bike and technique to Andy.
The last and final leg was 5km run up and down the promenade. Both competitors had to dig deep for this stage. Andy was in a great position going from the bike into the run. Libby had made great time and actually did a personal best time in her cycle. The run was to be her next challenge.
I was on hand for encouragement as Libby went round Fairhaven Lake. Both runners completed the run stage, again with Libby smashing her personal best time. Andy had a great run stage and ended up finishing in an impressive 3rd position overall and the 1st veteran over the finish line.
Libby raised a superb £299 beating her target of £250 which was fantastic.
Well done to Libby and Andy for a great day of competition and completing the tough challenge!
