Massive congratulations to all the proper athletes on Sunday who did the entire course, a couple of laps of the run course nearly killed me!
Hello to everyone I met and apologies for not talking longer, I had my "support" crew (aka the rest of the relay team) hurling abuse at me if they thought I spent even one minute not in absolute agony. I love them really.
Anthony, at 400m in Outlaw 2012 (my first IM) I had a complete meltdown and was treading water for about 3 minutes before I could talk myself into carrying on. All the cool kids do it. I would like to say I have improved since but that would be a bare faced lie. My Sunday highlight was that I didn't have to get in that lake (thanks there to my sister!).
Absolutely great race though, it deserves its reputation though, as my relay partner commented at registration "even the swim is hilly". Might even man up to try the whole thing next year...maybe...
