Hebburn Triathlon 2008: Swim - Karma catches me up
Robbie and I had both wangled early starts for the race - I was in at No. 19, setting off at 7:39, and he was No. 23, two minutes behind me. Fat Robbie’s a slightly faster swimmer than me, so I’d reckoned that we’d both be out of the water together.
Not so. Last year my swim time for this race was 8:07, which is a pace that I just know I can’t swim. I’m pretty certain that the marshall at the end of my lane in the pool pulled me out 50m early. Well this year, I think they made up for that mistake, and I swam two lengths extra - making 450m.
So by the time I got to transition, Fat Robbie was already there, and had headed out before I even got a chance to put my shoes on . . . .
Could I catch him on the bike? Find out in the next post: Hebburn Triathlon: Bike Chase-down
