Hey all, not being a pirate (burn him), I have to say guys it was a pleasure to talk to a few of you an witness the support, of which I benefited from the shouts and abuse! Didn't get his pirate name but Dave who I ran the last lap with, thanks mate ! It's really strange how you share an intensely personal experience with a compltee stranger but is going through the same thing as you!
oh and yes, the swim was the worst I have ever done, the bike was freezing and I didn't get any rain on the run either!
Also did Reading half, run was fantastic and support amazing, didnt push it but got a 1.41 PB so goes to show all the training is coming together. Organisation was terrible as has been said, numbers were based on predicted finish time so guess what, everyone was together, took over an hour to get bag and then another hour for the shuttle bus !!! Shocking !!!!
