As I'm not getting any younger, coming to towards the top of my age group, I knew I needed to work extra hard, but not only training but fund raising, as we are all self funded.
I trained through the winter in all weathers did small amount in the gym but most of my training was on the Derbyshire hills, I also put a 10k circuit in although this was not ideal as it had a set of traffic lights on it but it was at least safe.
It’s always a pleasure to catch up with my team mates and friends from around the world at the World Transplant Games. Race day came and as always nerves set in, but everything ran to time so we got a good warm up in and we were off. I put all I could onto my 10k individual time trial, then just had to wait for a few hours for final results.
