Great to be back after missing last year due to an aquathlon I was organising. Not so great to be nearly 5 mins slower but not been biking more than running recently so not a big surprise. What was a big surprise was when I decided to run through one of the larger puddles early on and it turned out to be mid-thigh depth. Weather was good but a tad cool for a thorough soaking in ice cold (literally) water.
Big thanks to Dr Rob who was very understanding when I turned up 20 plus minutes late (care of train at Guildford leaving from the wrong platform).
As usual, good quality medal and momento. Breakfast well appreciated, esp. the veggie sausages which are often missing.
