London Triathlon

Will Byrne took part in the London Triathlon last year, as part of a team raising money for Concern.

Here is his encouraging account.

My first ever triathlon! All that hard work, stress, training - oh and fun too - culminated in a fantastic day at the world’s largest triathlon; the London Tri Aug 2009. I proudly wore my Concern t-shirt as I sweated through the last few kilometres, with the outstanding encouragement from the Concern team.

Who else

My first thoughts on crossing the finishing line were "I'm definitely doing this again next year!"  My next thoughts were, “who else I know that I can convince to take part.”

Second time

So, I find myself looking forward to my second triathlon with far less stress and trepidation. and also in the knowledge that the money raised will be helping those who are in far greater need that I am.

Highly recommended

I have to say it was one of the most enjoyable days of my life. The atmosphere was amazing. The support from the Concern team throughout the event was second to none. Meeting other competitors and sharing stories was great. It's something I'd thoroughly recommend. You not only get a bit fitter and meet some great people but you also help change the lives of those less fortunate.
