Set at the Penrith Regatta Centre, Nepean Triathlon is the oldest triathlon in Australia. This year the organisers had put up a huge prize purse attracting most of the top triathletes in Australia.
The swim was a 1km straight down the Olympic rowing course. I actually had a decent swim, coming out with the main group of girls.
My transition was terrible, and I lost touch with the group at the start of the ride, and it just got worse from there. The run was a struggle, and I have never been so glad to see the finish line!
I ended up in 4th, behind Emma Moffat, Ashleigh Gentle and Natalie van Coeverden.
Thanks to the organisers and sponsors for their support of the race!
