Just been informed (and subsequently found) that they have finally split the results by male /female competitors...

...and I like what I see... 4th female overall and fastest female on both the run legs :)

I was 212th which at least wasn't last!! And anyway I enjoyed it. Lots of room for improvement before next year!!!!!

Nice to see you today my antipodean chum

Lazy day watching my bike being thrashed round the course and admiring all the lycra clad lovelies

looked so much fun I think I will give it a go next year

Finally made it home after this morning's excursion (via Gourmet Burger Kitchen!). Thoroughly enjoyed myself at this, dispite the my hamstring tightening up halfway round the 2nd lap of the bike. Managed to drag myself round the final run leg to cross the line in about 2hrs 4min (i think, forgot to stop the watch....). Though not an exceptional time by the standards of you lot here(!), as my first multi-discipline event, it'll do me :-)

..will be back next year......

Cheers Plummy. Soz I couldn't chat, too busy wearing my undies over my shorts and dispensing some tough love as Super Marshall ... also known as checking race & bike numbers :)

Munch - you looked a lot more chilled than most other finishers, some weary folk out there today.

Anyone else noticed this is last year's thread ? Just searched on duathlon this morning to pick up the vibe, and this was the first relevant one I found. Same peeps, same drivel, and an earlier vintage :)

My bike got round the 45 mins ish even without me on it... so now I know it can go fast if it tries I have no excuse for being idle.

was it just me Kanga or were some of those going in to check their bikes looking for a fight, I didnt think being asked to put your helmet on or do it up was cause for throwing your teddy in the corner but some were getting really stressed and I was there really quite early.

Munch sorry i missed you i thought I saw you out there but wasnt sure, I had my pirate hoodier on first thing but it got so bliddy warm it came off and I became anonymous

So Munch was that you in the pirate gear this morning? Somehow managed to miss you on the first run (we must have run right past you), but you looked strong on the two bike laps :-)

AJH - good to see you this afternoon - but we definitely need to get you a skull and crossbones for your front as well as your back!

Some photos up at flickr. Sorry to those who snuck up on me so I didn't snap!

Hollywood - yep that was me in the pirate kit and you managed to get 2 pics of me on the bike. Cheers :-)

Thats just what I was thinking Hollywood!

But I enjoyed it anyway.

Sorry I didnt see you Plum, it was very stressful getting there and I didn't want to go off and leave hubby after he had to walk about 3 miles to get to the right place. He was slightly pissed off!
