Swim, bike… marry? Triathletes find love at Challenge Weymouth
What did you do for Valentine’s Day? These two British age groupers got married after meeting on the picturesque roads of Dorset at Challenge Weymouth five months ago.
Phillip Henwood and Alicia Livingstone first laid eyes on each other during the 185km bike leg last September, then spent an hour or so cycling at a similar speed and chatting away before Alicia pushed on with her race and left Phillip to finish the route on his own, still thinking about the “glamorous athlete” he’d just met
Luckily for Phillip, Alicia contacted him after Weymouth and the pair decided that their next encounter should be at another race in October (Ironman Barcelona). They both completed the long distance triathlon race and discovered they didn’t just have triathlon in common, as romance quickly blossomed.
