I am going to post a few of these up if they help to imagine what the place was like, this is a german YouTube showing the week before, the White Sands beach part is where the lads stayed, 3 miles out of town and this is you pool !!! Awesome, queen K is just that, it shows the energy lab and yes, finding Bella out cycling or Stephen and Bella out running along Ali'i drive is just a normal day

Well boys you know what to do, head down, it's achievable, pick the right race, you guys are both in the early years but you are about 3 years into IM now, time to kick butt now eh ?

I think it is possible but it's a few years off yet, certainly for me but I think someone else could get very close should he decide to give it a go. One more season of half's and then another go in 2011 for me, then I think I will have the base to build on. Want to get to a level where I feel I am racing rather than completing.

 Well done Rosey

I followed your progress towards hawaii and followed you on race day, and I'm made up that you got to realise the dream.

It sounds like a world away from the bit of sport I do, and I'm not feeling inspired to try and go there myself, but thats just me.

Well done for chasing and realising your dream, more folks should try and chase their own.

Great Blog, Rosey, photos are great!!  Makes me want to do it so so much.  Only done one IM but give myself 10 years and I think I could do it..... Just need to shave about 2/3hrs off and i'm there, easy!!

TB, sorry I didn't get back to you the other day.  I'm in north Dorset, just outside Shaftesbury. Work in Yeovil where everyone in Yeovil works, not far from you at all!

I am based in Crawley now, but am always in Yeovil delivering to Screwfix, and Doozer was in Bournemouth on Thursday, i go to a great bakers in B'mouth is it Idah's and then Sands coffee shop a few doors along,
