Oops - I forgot too 

Excellent work SD.  I can see I'm going to have some work to do to keep up with you!

Lewis 11? I thought he'd gone into witness protection and assumed a new identity.

Good to have you back, Lewis

Thanks, i'll do a full race report tomorrow on the blog.

Couple of highlights

I frigged about in T1 for ages because i left my garmin in my bike shoe, worried someone would nick it off my bike. Anyway, it got jammed and took ages to get it out, lol

Finish was good as it was a straight run up an avenue with spectators either side cheering you on, then your name was announced over the loud speakers as you came up to the line.

Great pics . Who do you swim with?

We have the same wetsuit! Although possibly in different sizes.

The lake looks nice. I had to buy neoprene socks because I can't stand the feeling of the squelchy mud and slimy weeds on my feet.

While I find my ow legs so to speak a company called RG Active, I don't mind the mud

Yes I suspect my wetsuit is a little bigger than yours!!

Congrats SD, great time for the sprint!

Evening all.

Second time it's hailed round my way in the past fortnight. Guess what, i was out on the bloody bike when it happened again.

Still, managed a cheeky 37 miles, furthest i've ridden since getting caught in the last hail storm.
