Great reports, everyone - here's my little contribution

No triathlons for me this year, or running either, for that matter, but I got a pass for the weekend, so I couldn't wait to get myself over to Chiltern Avenue to top up my pirateness.

I wasn't disappointed - I arrived in the pub and straight into the arms of SA - best hugger on board ship, I say! So good to see everyone ... made me feel all warm and mushy inside 

No swim for me - I think I've forgotten how to do it ... so straight out onto the bike, into the wind and the rain ... with Red Stripe at first and then on my own, true TT style. I loved it - the feed station was ace, but I also liked the bend when the headwind bit hard as soon as you headed downhill - it was brutal, but fab, in a sick sort of way. I got colder and colder and my mph started dropping towards the end, but I was very happy to be peeling off to T2 after lap 12.

Run - well I'll called this the 'Go' - as in Elliptigo ... I was glad I bothered to squeeze this into the car, because I loved doing my 4 laps of the run route on this. I felt I was earning my Millionaire Shortcake sundae and my hot chocolate later on. I was tired and cold, but very happy, swishing along on my cross-trainer on wheels. Of course its cheating, because I did my 4 laps in just over an hour, but it was the extra 500 calories I needed for that pudding at the pub later 

This event is just ace - thanks to SA, Mrs SA, Little Clown, Jordy and everyone, old and new (I'm sounding like an Oscar winner now) - I had such a boost seeing folk again ... just what the doctor ordered ...

I'm having a major op in May, but I'm hoping to be recovered by then, so can you please provisionally add me and my son to the list?

Just realised the cuddles are to give to a baby - I thought I could get one? Maybe we could have another list for that ...

Polo shirt for me, please - small, please

Is there a photo of the T shirts? I got back to 300/420 posts ... I'm sure it'll be back there somewhere ... 

Dead excited ... !

Paris Marathon 2015

Hi everyone

I'm a bit late to the party, but I'm injured, so unfortunately the most expensive marathon I've ever entered will be a DNS 

My question is - can I get my goody bag without my medical certificate, and is it likely to be worth it?

I'm in ... couldn't resist the clean waters and the beautiful setting ... not sure about the marathon leg and my dodgy knee, but I'll see what the outcome of the arthroscopy is and then take it from there ...
