It was fantastic!... will do it again next year... maybe even do the London Triathlon!!!
Managed 1:47:48 in the end (Run 0:41:26, Bike 0:41:09, Run: 0:20:45), half an hour quicker than I thought it'd take me, so I'm really pleased!
Everything was a bit of a blur, so many numbers on the course, it was hard to spot you all - but I do remember spotting a Marmite vest in the crowd somewhere.
The first lap was a bit like your average 10K run (but not pushing yourself as hard), transition was interesting and added to the excitement, the bike leg was great too; although my calves started to cramp up on the second lap, but it soon managed to sort itself out before the 5K, which in turn felt like a slow-mo sequence out of an action movie!
Will definitely do it again, loved the atmosphere... and the sun even showed it's face!
