After writing down my 20 goals in 2015 it was time to take action and start making progress to achieving them.
After a little bit of research I found the perfect triathlon to do to; The Cheshire Go Green Triathlon which is based in Nantwich, South Cheshire. This is an easy location for me to get to and it has the added benefit of the swim being done in a heated outdoor pool!
