It was somewhere around here that Foggy passed me, we exchanged a few words of encouragement and established that his quick release wetsuit had "gone off" somewhat prematurely and he had effectively towed a neoprene bag full of sea with him for about 3k of the swim.
Sorry Foggy .. falsely accusing you of being behind me at some point .. Think it was actually Symes that had wetsuit issues
Despite my dissapointment at not finishing the weekend was fantastic. Staying in Oceanos with the Pirate posse was great fun . Raf , mate what a race to choose for your first IM , so pleased that you not only finished but did it in an awesome time. Pingu .. the official queen of calm , who half an hour before bike check in still didnt have a functional bike. Now thats true Iron Lady stuff.. hardest IM course in the world (probably )on a borrowed bike you'd never riden.. respect. Pirate support was as always top notch . Schmunks popping up on the bike course , Mrs F and Shuffle leading the cheers on the Run. Bad luck that the leg gave up on you Foggy , But to the rest of my pirate pals congratulations on a job well done .. Pirates doing Lanzarote .. who'd have thought
I enterred to answer the debate in my mind as to which is harder Wales or Lanza .. guess i got my answer. So i am back to the easier one in September , and will ponder Lanza for another year... i do realy want that medal now .
