Depending on how my races pan out next year, fancy giving me a second shot at you?
race on fella..... but not toooo serious...we are Pirates after all
Stanners be careful, I seem to remember Calf and Rosey having a bet about who would run the quicker marathon at IMUK a few years back, cost Rosey a night on the beer with him having to buy all the beer
Great reports and performances from all
Aaah if only that was the case...I ended up buying the beers on that occasion, think my standalone mara is quicker than Rosey's but he's a bloody animal at the ironman (and annoyingly great bloke too boot)
And for those of you worrying about panic attacks etc....I was telling the g'friend just before the start how in my first open water swim tri at pembrokshire 7 years ago I was a flapping panicking mess (some would say not to different to today) and ended up racing (splashing alot, going round in circles and breathing in water) the last 10m when myself and another guy realised it was between the two of us not to be last out of the swim.....2nd to last was in my mind a huge victory...as was surviving.... so you do get used to it...you might not get any faster but you do get used to it...
And clello at under 38 mins for the swim with a little panic and breaststroke at the start that's a cracking swim time.
And reiterating my peoples comments..well done all that finished...that was by far the hardest HIM I have raced!!!!
