Good luck to everyone - as you pass me (if you are actually behind me) I'll be giving the chant of Go Pirate Go so tell me to HTFU
I had 2 aims - sub 4 and to run all the way and I did both (3:33 with the last 5 miles being tough but 30 minutes better than last year)
I really like the event as it is hard work but my 'scamper' up the hills technique which I have been working on seemed to work well
Wind was a bit cool at the start but soon warmed up and then just tried to keep going and plod it out
Will look to do it again next year and knock a few more minutes off if I can
Results are up here
My wife did it as her first ever half - 2:32 - so she was well pleased to have finished.
Myself and the kids supported in our bright red wigs !!!
Excellent report - that means I overtook somebody on the bike leg !!
Now just looking ahead ...
IM Wales 2012 ?
IMUK 70.3 - go shorter and really give it a go - I like Vegas !!!!
