I'm welsh veteran triathlon champion at middle distance............there were only 2 of us there....I'm well chuffed with my trophy
Well done Vicky. You gotta be in it to win it!
Did you get a prize?
Hey, you can only beat the competition that shows up on the day. A victory won fair and square.
(Kryten, go and sit on the naughty step)
Well done Vicky - you've gotta be in it to win it, so what if you were the only one
Enjoy the glory
Fantastic!! You were there on the day so well deserved. Enjoy your achievement.

Kryten - i hope your butt freezes to the step and you end up with piles!
Vicky - do you mind stepping aside and letting me enter next year?
Something to look forward to next year when I hit "that" age then. Just shows you that alot of wimmin over 40 aren't putting in the effort. You are unique Vicky so well done.
I competed at an off road duathlon a few years back and although it was only 5/15/5ks long it was tough going for all but the young whipper snappers (me 55 next month) and I was pleased with my time of 1:45, However the lassie who won one class took nearly 3hrs or so. They were giving out the prizes as she was finishing but finish she did. If ever there was a reason to carry on that was it - the glory of winning and a trophy to prove it. The time is irrelevant, the trophy sitting for all to see and the self satisfaction of a great achievement is what counts.
Technically I go up a group next year (at least I think I do) but knowing my luck they will move the goal posts Giving 14 plus years in the male vets (40+) group can suck at times . Still I have not been beaten/passed by a letterbox or a gorilla, not yet anyway but I think the bottle of Newcastle Brown beat me in the Paris marathon this year though!!
fat budda - what a shame she wasn't able to go to Kona - these opportunities don't present themselves very often.
Vicky - you can only beat those entered. Best way to see if you have done well is to put your time/age/distance into the Howard Grubb age-grade calculator which has the best times for your age then spits out your percentage. If you've done better than 80% pat yourself on the back. it will also tell you how fast you would have run if you were a young person.
