Like many others, I am not a marathon runner and don’t consider myself athletic but I wanted to challenge myself and get out of my comfort zone. The Jersey Girl Triathlon was beyond all my expectations from the training with Brian to the Facebook page advice, I felt supported and motivated and never judged!!! I will 100% be participating next year and hopefully for many years to come. If you want to challenge yourself and meet outstanding friendly people Jersey Girl is the event for you. I loved that they called everyone’s name as they crossed the finish line, I’ve done a few 5K races and they never announced names unless you won so that was truly a moving experience I could help but get a little emotional!! Give the Jersey Girls Triathlon a try and you will be hooked... I am!!!

Top Tips: 
Attend the open water swim practice to calm your nerves and practice the transition from bike to run! Legs feel a little like jello after 11 miles and a couple took a spill... I almost did but thankfully I caught myself but other racers and volunteers were there for support immediately!!
