hello...people...i'd love to do a race report but i'm too tired...as you might know mrsB was racing too yesterday..i was a few minutes ahead in the swim...few more after the bike and she caught me up about 10 miles into the run...then...to my delight we finished it together...it was amazing.
it was a really tough day out there....made so amazingingly better by wearing a pirate top...i've never ever known support like it just because i had that shirt on...i wont race without it again and i thank you all.
we are now chorleys answer to steven and bella bayliss....only a bit slower
Hey guys i've registered....number 1767...i dont have a pirate t-shirt but i will say hello to any i see at the briefing this afternoon.
quick question...where is the pirate support? i heard 57 and 99 miles...so i think thats around mawdsley back towards standish...but not sure (i doubt i'll miss you anyway though...i've heard SA shouting before)
this came from a pirate a couple of years ago and i always loved it...seems apt to post it here and is better than good luck
Have a great race. Love your day. You've probably trained harder than you ever have, gone out in sun, wind, rain, snow.
You will have done things you wouldn't have thought possible, covered distances inconcievable.
You will have fought of all kinds of problems, experienced gut wrenching moments of doubt and come through them to find yourself standing in transition, in the dark, sick to the pit of your stomach.
But at some point, during all the miles and all the months, something, somewhere will have changed.
Somewhere inside you is a voice that says 'No. I will not stop. I will not give in. I will go on'.
That's the ironman you have made. That's the ironman you are. Just show everyone, your friends, your family, your fellow competitors what you already know - you are an ironman
Show the the world. Show us you are ironmen. Love your race.
Hi Guys, i sadly cant make the pasta party (never been) or pizza express on friday night as i'll be sat sitting around at home. i'll be wearing pirate kit on the ride so give me a shout if you pass me.
