yep I ended in T1. I think that the bus chaos getting there wound me up which when added to the waves splashing in the face making me chock etc just got to me.
I joined the bus queue to get there at 5:40 and got to T1 after the trip and walk at 7:10 during which time I was worrying about not having nutrition on the bike as we had been told T1 closed at 6:50
I got my blue bag before it was taken away (otherwise I would have had nothing to change into at all) but wasn't able to get my bike and red bag until 2:40 by the time they opened the lorries that had been sat there for hours!
Was talking to 1 lady whose hubby was diabetic and his insulin pump failed. The paramedics *who weren't paramedics* didn't have any insulin and when he asked if he could get back to the start and his spares he was asked if he could get his own way there 'cos if they took him someone else may need them! Insulin is a matter of life or death in some cases so this is a terrible response.
I didn't appreciate getting my white bag in the finishers tent with everyone celebrating either!
