Ferret, great report, you did so well on the run.

Bungles, I remember getting into racking after the bike and seeing your run bag gone and thinking you'd blasted the bike after the time you'd predicted ... then doing a double take on the run when I saw you supporting    Sometimes things just don't go to plan  .. and it's a good excuse to go back!!

 I like your approach to entering something that you dont know youll finish.

Congratulations Ferret, great report and result.

Bungles, I didn't finish either due to poor energy levels; I took two weeks off, did the UK 70.3 last Sunday (finished) and can't wait to go back to Lanza, although it will probably be 2015 for me.  You'll be back.

Thank you for all your kind words.

i hope to also go back in 2015 SumoSue, will be doing Germany next year (15hr cut off, like to make it more difficult!)

of course next year I'll be wearing the pirate colours!!

Pingu - when I was waiting at the swim start at Windsor last week, some bloke next to me said 'Oh you're a Pirate, you must know Pingu' and then proceeded to tell everyone around you're bike story from Lanza!! It set to become a thing of legend!! Although I think you're milking a little if some complete stranger knows about it  

He was obviously a dubious character though as he then said ' That Slag, he's s a nice bloke!!' - he's obviously delusional!!

LOL!!

Bungles, don't beat yourself up over it.  What a tough year you had on the lead up.  Well done for just getting to the start.  That's more than a lot of us.  

And with that, I think my mind's made up.  Just need to persuade someone I can do the training as well as losing the weight!!

Finally done my race report, still not checked my GPS data though. They are quite long but there are photos and videos to watch.
