Team TRTC 2018 wrap-up.
If you’re prepared to travel, triathlon can be a year-round event. However, for most of us, April through October is a typical triathlon ‘season’. As we approach the end of the season, September was a hugely busy month for Team TRTC, with 15 TRTC team members racing in 6 events over the month.
Amongst the highlights were:
- Ashley Roughton’s Ironman 70.3 World Championships in South Africa at the beginning of September;
- the Human Race Season Finale in Dorney Lake in the middle of September – where 3 TRTC teams (comprised of Vojin Soskic, Jade Rodham, Katie Barr, Paul Lewis, Anna Skinner, Graham Barr, Charles Evans, Emma Kelso, and Carl Skinner) competed in the Olympic distance relay, and Ann Fingleton and William Evans competed individually in the Sprint distance;
- and the 70.3 Weymouth Triathlon at the end of the month, which featured Paul Lewis, Emma Kelso and Ashley Roughton.
What a finale to a fantastic 2018 triathlon season!
The entire season was an amazing one for Team TRTC. And there were so many firsts for so many members of the team. Lots of the TRTC squad were completely new to triathlon this year and confidence (or lack of it!) was cited as one of the biggest reasons that had been stopping them. Taking part in structured coaching sessions as well as the support and camaraderie of the squad made all the difference for these novices making those first big steps (and strokes and pedals). For the more experienced members, the opportunity to share both the highs and lows that every season brings kept them going through the tough times.
Setting and achieving goals, crossing finish lines, setting PBs – it’s been quite a year. And we should all take a moment to look back on all that hard work, bask in the moments of glory and reflect on the lessons learned. Soon we’ll begin planning the 2019 race season and getting to grips with new goals and the start of our winter training.
Well done Team TRTC! I am one proud coach.
Go well guys 🏊🏻🚴🏃♂️💨
