You can always catch up with Joddly at the awards, Slim!
She is always there with a surprised look on her face when they announce her name . Every year!

Really wanted to do this but will not get enough bike time between now and then to do it any kind of justice.. also won't be running up any hills between now and then either It would just be suicide. Maybe next year though! I probably will come along to laugh at you all though - i mean to support you..

Boooo No Ballbuster in the Funkin household now...someone broke his rib windsurfing and can barely sit up in bed let alone do a 16 mile hilly run. Might still come and shout...

Oh my goodness Mrs F. Give him a gentle hug from us.

Bad news

You could take his place MrsF? We could get you a Monty Python/Life of Bryan beard to race in.

Hehe Cat - can you *imagine* it...actually I kind of can "Briiiaaaaaaaaan"...

Meester Kanga, slight problem in not being able to walk well (let alone run), or sit forward to ride, or do anything really besides sit up straight. HC, gentle cuddle administered

I've just eaten a loaf of bread and pumped up my tyres.  Bring it on.

Have to say my motivation has been non-existant in recent weeks with a resultant lack of training.  Did do a half marathon a few weeks back which went ok so just hoping fitness from the summer will carry me through!

Could be very chilly, but looking forward to good conditions tomorrow . Will be bringing shoe covers to stop my cleats clogging up in T1 - I recommend it!

See you at the NT cafe at about 7am....

Enjoy. Watch out for the fog and irate traffic on the forst run and bike.

I'll be XCing it tomorrow in the league.

Box Hill was stunning today. Before the start, the view south (?) was a blanket of low mist over the contours that you could see for miles. Then, as the sun rose higher, the tree colours throughout the course were spectacular. Perhaps I sustained minor hypoxic brain damage during the race, as I even spent most of the drive home feeling overwhelmed by the beauty of the English countryside today!!

Plus I won my age group...

Great to catch up with CD, Slim and Gladys - see you again in March!

It was a great day with fantastic weather...although I cant say i spent my drive home feeling overwhelmed by the beauty of the English countryside...more overwhelmed by the cramp in my calves and tiredness! 

Well done Joddly on winning your age group...podium again!

If you dont mind I'll give the Spring one a miss - see you next November

I had a bad day at the office, just couldn't get going. By the time I was at the bottom of the hill for the last time the engine was still willing but there was nothing left in the legs.

Traffic on the course (cars, non-competing bikes, even a group out running round the course together) was far worse than on the usual Saturday race, but some of that may be down to the post-Olympics popularity of the place.

Good to catch up with the regulars though, and apologies to menace for responding to his request for a smile wi a resounding 'No!'.

Well done all. Next time CD; some days you catch fish, some days you mend the nets. Or sometimes you're the pigeon, sometimes you're the statue!
