Crystal Palace Triathlon Pink 2014

I’ve been behind in posting my recent photography shoots, so it seems fitting that the third I’m posting today is for the Triathlon Pink charity race that took place at Crystal Palace in London organised by Breakthrough Cancer.

Béa and a few of her work colleagues have been sweating it out litterally over the last 6 months with intense “boot camp” fitness training sessions twice, sometimes three times a week. They opted for the longest option which is 300m swim, 9km cycling and 3km running. I was pretty exhausted just thinking about it!

It was a very early start this morning, loading up the bike on the car at around 6am, driving into London to beat the Sunday morning traffic.

Here are our little champions just before the pool event.

Here’s Lynn tasting the success of the finish line.

This was my first big event that I went to primarily to support the girls, but it turned out to be far more than just that. Everyone (runners and spectators) had a great fun time (no really!), and the motivation to get through it as a team brings that great reward of satisfaction as they all crossed the finish line.

In fact a few others who came along with us are apparently signing up to do it next year 🙂
