This morning shortly after 10am a Metrorail Train travelling between Sunnycove and Glencairn stations caught alight. Emergency services were on scene quickly to attend to the blaze and did an admirable job containing it and separating the remaining carriages and hauling then away.
I have 5 free tickets to the triathlon workshop that the Sports Science Institute are hosting this evening Monday 5 October. The workshop is aimed at triathletes interested in upskilling themselves. The range of topics includes swimming training and the advantages of wearing a wetsuit; getting the best out of your bike and run; the 4th discipline (transition) as well as the highly under-rated value of recovery.
The workshop has some fantastic speakers including Andrea Steyn (@an3asteyn) Vicky van der Merwe (@VickyVDM_) and Viv Williams (@veteranviv). There are also some super lucky draw prizes including a GARMIN 920XT tri bundle!

Bianca just buried herself on the run to claw back 21 places but in the end fell just 2 places short of the final ascent and the Black t shirt cut off. I have no words for how I feel and what I have seen her put herself through today. I am absolutely devestated for her but so proud of her for giving it everything she had. She is in agonising pain but in true Bianca Tait fashion she is still running to the white t shirt finish.
