ORSUM.

(definately said, as I'd lost the video feed at that point, just had audio).

Into the recovery tent and onto the scales – just 200g down so passsed fit and released to the massage area.  I actually felt in pretty good shape other than being extremely weary.  I didn't actually discover the blisters till I got home.  Numb just about sums it up and beyond that, relief that it was over and I’d done it.  In retrospect, I did actually enjoy all but about 3hrs of the 16:35:59

The outstanding features of the day have to be the incredible organization and official support crews, the outstanding local support and the unanticipated level of sherpa support from my freinds and their families. 

My thanks again to Aanders, Ally and Jaggy for their comany and support on course and off.  As Ally has already reported, Aanders did a first class job of officiating at our own mini Pirate award breakfast on Sunday and conferring the necessary ranks.  Im proud to be a Scurvy Dog Pirate.

Will I do another? I don't know yet but I would unreseveredly recommend IMNZ to anyone.

Congratulations to everybody.

Trogs - That's one down - you will be back for more.  Sounds like you had some good support but you should try it with the pirate massif behind you.

Jaggy - had to laugh at you being scared of Debs if you didn't finish the swim, perhaps you can understand how difficult my life is now. 11 minutes in T1 is nothing - 21 minutes in T2 is a nice controlled changeover.

At the awards night Mike Reilly said there was a guy who spent 17 minutes in T1 and then 48 minutes in T2!

Right, I'm off for a swim. Only 10 minutes though, none of this 3km nonsense.
