I'm very sorry to have to say that we're not coming now - stuff happens, and all that ... I won't bore you with the details, but I'm not happy 

I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for a great weekend for you all

I'm in a girls only cycling club in Hull - there may be a couple of bargain bikes (possible one for free if you make a good case) among our members - but its a bit of trek from County Durham?

Don't stop smiling - you've paid a lot of money for this and put a lot of effort in, so remind yourself to enjoy your day out!

Thanks for sorting this all out - my son and I will have a tent each so does he need to be booked in separately for the camping?

I don't know if its too late, but a broken collarbone means I won't be swimming on the Saturday now, but we'll both still be helping on the feed station, although I shall be mostly one handed

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 ...
