Feedback

Firstly can a say a massive thank you to all your team and volunteers who where at the Cheshire triathlon in Nantwich yesterday

I had never been so frightened of anything than taking on this huge personal achievement, last April I had Breast care surgery for very early stage Breast cancer Now I was one of the lucky ones and got away almost scott free But for a Middle Ages overweight smoker it was time to change my life around So in February this year I started with some walking to try and loose weight and get a little bit fitter

So as you can see to complete the pink wave is something I am extremely proud of.

Your staff where absolutely amazing from the lady who a spoke when I registered just 3 weeks ago who convinced me I could do this for (I think her name was Jackie but I'm not sure ).

For everyone shouting encouragement to me on my ride to the lady at the finish line who I fell into her arms crying (sorry but the achievement and the emotion of the day just got to me). When she put that medal around my neck my friend and family where all crying with me she arranged photos and loads of them (Please can you advise how I get hold of these ).

Truly your staff are inspirational.

Thank you again and see you next year.

Joanne Thomas (race number 812)
