Race description, weather, atmosphere:
This was my first Sprint Tri in Nottingham with 2 transition areas and first deep open water
start with 250 ladies starting all together. I was just a little nervous.
Weather sunny and warm/hot especially out on the run.
There was a great atmosphere and people were really encouraging and supportive. Many
from Bassetlaw Tri club who raced before me and the ones registering for the Out Law half
were there to support which was a great help and support. Matan made sure I did the right
amount of laps on the bike by shouting out how many I had done. Overall it was a great day
and a great race.
