Infected blisters are nasty. Doctors think they're very nasty. Doctors scare you into thinking you will lose your foot if you don't go to A&E and get antibiotics an' stuff.

the med tent people cut them off with a scalpel when i finished.  i made a fuss.  i had to have another doctor sat next to my head saying "breathe... breathe".  her obstetrics training obviously came in useful.

if her obstetrics training came in handy I do wonder where the blisters were..........

Cybor - have you got a blades tattoo as well? but at least you have been in the prem recently. its all new to us. Wembley was tops.

JP - good lad - looking forward to seeing it - have you decided on the design - numbers and stuff?

Rio - tough luck - better luck next time i guess - at IMUK the refs were VERY strict and stopped any bikes at dismount and took off their chip off. my missus saw a few people being carted off DNFIC - got to be soul destroying.

Rio - have you got the tattoo yet ?

DTB - i was adding up the number and got it wrong - thought rio had missed by <1 min on first calc.

regarding tattoos surely there has to be some temporary IM, Mdot tattoos out there on the market? to try before you 'dye'

i'll research the web tonight see what i can come up with.

SS - as JJ says felt pen round a cut out of the medal then get Mrs SS to colour it in. You could always use permanent marker, give you a while to get used to it.

I am having the back of the Medal, with the distances on, swim in blue, bike in black and run in red. Not sure yet on whether to have the M in Black or Red, will be colouring some in myself this week to decide. It will obviously clash with the Disney Marathon one on the other leg tho

Quite a few people DNFd near my marshalling point because they knew that because of their pace there was no point starting the third lap.  Most were ok-ish, hacked off but ok... but one girl cried in my arms for a good minute sobbing "I trained all year for this..."...  that brought back memories...

What's the issue with chips being removed? You can still finish, although you won't get an official time. In Germany they tried to physically box cougie in, but he jumped over the fence and ran the marathon anyway.

If you're going to technically dnf due to cut off, you can still run it. It's your choice whether you want to "rio" (hurrah!) or "JD" (boo!). If you choose to quit, no point asking for sympathy.

Innit.

Sore shins I am not allowed the tattoo so hubby is having a pendant made for me instead
And as I said before I was fully expecting to be pulled off.

You can finish with your chip and still not get an official time in Switzerland (but I guess that is becuase I must have hid from the marshals cos they didn't know I was on the course still)
