Such a lovely sunny week – I hope you are all out and about enjoying the sunshine?

Team Energised have been racing well at a variety of comeptitions and here is a summary…

BIG Well Done to Danielle Stewart who won the National Triathlon Sprint Triathlon Championships with ease – also racing and placing was Mark Hirsch, Ivan Newman, Ian Howard and Kim Ingleby! An early start, with the mist rising over the lake in Milton Keynes saw the athletes setting off, followed by an undulating bike and a quick two lap run – all finished by about 8am I think! Good times 🙂

Folllowing on from that was the Rother Valley triathlon in Sheffiield with Ivan Newman winning his age group (to read Ivan’s great Blog:(http://ivannewman.blogspot.com/) and qualifying for the World Age Group Triathlon Championships for the third time – Ivan is an awesome athlete and a great inspiration who I have worked with for a many years – well done Ivan!  I also raced there, achieving a PB in the swim by over 2mins which was really exciting. The lake swim was busy but fast, followed by a technical and very hilly bike (making Bristol look flat!) and finishing again with a flat, fast run – good times again.  I am waiting to hear if I have got that last place for the Europeans in 2011 – fingers crossed!

Also to add to the successes – Sophie Whitworth – such a talented athlete, won her 70.3 Austria race by 10mins – brilliant result Sophie – big well done! If you are looking for inspiration, want to read more or sponsor a great talent visit: http://www.sophiewhitworth.com/

In keeping new Team EP client Anita Jones, won the Barcelona came 4th overall in her age group, beating several Elite athletes in the 70.3 race, and continues to be placed highly and heads to the World Triathlon Championships later this year with a real medalling chance – go Anita!! Big well done 🙂

Also racing in more local South West triathlon’s and placing well include Phil Denny, Debbie Jones, Debbie Pocock, Alex Miller, Dace Baber and Phil Nicholls – well done everyone!

And the ladies have been out and about at the annual Team Energised Race for Life event – over 20 clients completed the 5km and 10km races, many in personal bests – a Big Well Done – especially to Dee O’Brien and her clan of sisters who came to take part plus Karen, Cheryl, Kalpna, Isabelle, Holly, Claire, Jo and Kate.
