Started pissing down as I got off bike. Dumped bike (stuffed in last of jelly babies) and grabbed baseball cap - hate the rain on my face
run was 4 laps on grass round the park, funnelled between bits of tape. Rain got heavier and heavier til we were all looking completely drenched and ridiculous.
Spotted sister who claimed not to know which lap she was on (but she, unlike me, has a working garmin so doesn't need to count). Turns out she was nearly a whole lap ahead of me and at one point overtook me altogether. Looks like training does make a difference after all.
Highlight of the run was some woman saying to me "come on love, you're so brave!" Er, do I look like I'm on my last legs or something?!
Spotted mr daffs and sister with medal, annoyingly I still had entire lap to go but at least the sun came out by the time I finished.
Walked back to car before realising we'd forgotten to collect bikes (you don't go past the transition once you've finished). Got bikes, then realised we'd forgotten to collect swim stuff (ridiculous system, wonder how many unclaimed bags they had left at the end?!)
Got changed, walked several more miles til we found M&S cafe and had cake
