Bit like own brand value soup but with bigger bits you mean?

No more like one of those readymix things that never actually mix properly and leave a nasty taste in the mouth when you get to the bottom of the cup and get a gobful of unmixed powder and a lump of dried pea.

But in the end I suppose it's a meal, after all soup is soup whatever the make.

So I s'pose as it's obviously a non-event, not worth mentioning, LJS, Jo, Doug and myself needn't expect any support for our efforts then.

Oh well, as you were then. Won't bother with race reports.

But I must admit, the Danube river canal does sometimes resemble soup!

IW I would like the race reports - I intend staying independant and should be able to afford this next year

ok maddy, just for you then.

Ta IW - not that anyone else will sneak on and read them off course ;O)

I'll move away from the spade now I was only messing. At the end of the Mervyn 140miles is 140miles in anyone's book.

(In fact after a quick bit of navel contemplation and self-analysis I think the only reason I went on about it was a reaction to it being put forward as the greatest race in the world - EVER. I haven't got a Scooby on the basis I have never participated in or even witnessed anything involving more than one discipline let alone IM Distance.)

So I wish all those participating (whatever the stripe count on their trainers) all the very best.

As you were then.

CRAB - it used to be the original IMDE but the organisers fell out with the WTC (ironman brand name folks) and decided to go it alone - very sucessfully - it is the biggest IM event and has all the whistles and bells just not the logo

I've been trying to forget about this race.....I need more hours in the day!

CRAB it would be the same but Broth is notorious for being a short course

Not when you're out on it, it ain't, believe me!

CRAB - say it in kms, 226 sounds better than 140. ummmmm......no,maybe not.

smiley lady - no worries, you're only doing the bike!!!!!
