The day after my birthday I raced Kenneth Gasque’s Ocean Lava here on Lanzarote. It was a another great, well organised race on Lanzarote that felt great to be part of. Since retiring from full distance triathlon 2 months ago and now concentrating on coaching I had been training less so it was interesting to see how I got on. I pushed hard and enjoyed a competitive battle with 4 girls. In the end, Maja Stage Neilson won, me 2nd, Nicole Woysch 3rd and Saleta Castro 4th.
