Well it's been a while since I posted on my blog (poor standards I say) so thought I would bring things up to date as to where I am and what has been happening.
Since the last update I competed in two more races in 2012, a trip to my favourite hillclimb at Harewood where I finished second in class and a return to 3 Sisters but a different configuration, again finishing second in class; on both occasions to Mark Teale in his very nicely prepped 306 with Longman engine.
Sadly, funds down currently allow for me to compete in motorsport so things have been quiet on that front, which is a shame as the HSA Championship this year is looking to be one of the best ever.
So how have I been filling the time?
I decided that being extremely overweight, lethargic and generally unwell all of the time, and inspired by the Olympics (a cliche I know) I joined the gym and started to train again. Since then it's been a long steady road but I have lost 3 stone and completed a super sprint duathlon in November
The Lymm 10k, where I just managed to scrape in under the hour barrier (59:58)
But, my big goal had been to do a triathlon again before I was 40. My original target was the North West tri in September, however training has been going so well that I ended up competing in the Wilmslow tri a couple of weeks ago, and I bloody loved it. I'd forgotten how much I enjoyed it.
So whilst this blog was titled Chris Goes Racing, the focus will shift slightly for now to reflect my renewed passion for all that is triathlon and running. And hopefully I will be a bit more diligent in updating it.
