Shaun nearly kills himself
Our Studio entertainment provider Shaun is an avid Triathlete and this weekend he went to the extreme by competing in the Outlaw Triathlon at the National Watersports Centre in Nottingham. The Outlaw consists of a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride and a 26.2 mile run – ouch!
Out of around 1,000 entries there’s quite a few who don’t make the finish line so we were over the moon and very proud to hear that Shaun completed the challenge in a very respectable 13hrs 52mins. He started the swim at around 6am and crossed the finish line just before 8pm!
“It bloody hurt I can tell you, the swim went really well and the bike ride wasn’t too bad but the marathon was painful. I nearly passed out twice but managed to keep going to the end.”
We all hope Shaun takes a well deserved break to recover before he starts training again although I heard a rumour he’s already been swimming.
