Well done you! And well done everyone else. Wasn't that fab! Yes, definitely triathletes now. Only got over taken by 4 swimmers (including you JCM) so that wasn't as bad as expected. Definitely have the tri bug now. See you at Spalding.

Tip no. 1. Never do a half marathon straight after a triathlon. Horrible. Hated every step of it. How do these nutters cope with Ironman Triathlons?

Sorry about that FS but you made up for it but flying past me on your bike. Have my form for spalding just hope I get a place (have managed to swap the necessary shift) I think you were very brave to even consider the half never mind doing it, I refused to consider it when suggested to me.

Hmm don't know about flying past you, but looking at the results I am dead shocked to see my bike was the strongest discipline out of the three.

You did really well JCM, and you and Marcia are really well matched. I couldn't believe Helen's swim time. Awesome!

It was probably chauffering your children areound on the mountain bike that did it!

Helen was very pleased and very suprised with her swim time too.

I have spent the day feeling smug as I was wishing for a time around 1hr45 and thinking of closer to an hour. I was suprised to see how close Marcia and I were again.

Hey, that's it. Would you like to borrow them, say for 15 years?

Marcia was pleased, I got an email from her today. Perhaps we can all meet up for some bike rides and runs before Spalding. Do you think Wakey will do another tri?

PS Hope your top has stopped twisting!

I would only borrow them on the pretense I could give them back when I have had enough. I think doing some runs and bike rides before spalding will be a great idea (off duty permitting) I hope you are offering to be the frount runner. When I was talking to skidpan on sun eve he said that wakey was pleased she did it but was not going cycling ever again! I will see if she has changed he mind tonight. Thankfully my to has stopped twisting, but it appears mot to have been the only one. Will try and get a non twisting top for spalding

OK. Will email you, Helen and Marcia some dates and see what we can come up with. I'm in Boston today so training with Boston and District AC tonight. Enjoy training in Lincoln.
