Morning all. It's a lovely day for a race. Water could not be more different from yesterday and hardly a ripple compared to yesterday's waves. 

I am not racing - it's a long story so won't go into it now. 

My mate is racing and has taken my black and yellow so if you see an unknown pirate it might be him so tell hello and get him to move faster.

good luck all and don't be shit.

EM - tried to text earlier but must have written number down wrongly - water was a little choppy earlier ! Sure we saw people surfing

I will be there tomorrow afternoon with a mate who is racing. We are camping so will probably be looking for somewhere with comfy seats that serves coffee. Would be good to meet up if anyone is about.

Any idea of the temperature of the water at the moment? I am feeling cold just thinking about it.

Glad to see Dave you have decided to join us.

how is everyone's training going?

I am massively underprepared but will make the start line and it will be a bonus if I make it through the swim, a miracle if I complete the bike and I will be dreaming if I finish the run. 

Anyone staying in Bala the night before and any plans for a meet up for a cola or two ?
