It appears that the person who was doing the swim has also had to pull out and that also means the person doing the run will pull, so it appears we need to fill a full team

Duda, which bit would you prefer Bike or run?

And anyone else fancy doing something

Well not quite what I planned

Great swim

Bike started great then 10 miles in started getting sciatic pains shooting down through my backside
Shifted posistion to try and stretch it out, pain killers, etc, still riding
stopped and unclipped to stretch set off again stopped and had to get off the bike to walk around, ambulance stops and asks if I want to quit, no, I'm carrying on
set off again, had to stop again, this time, lying down in the road with my leg stuck up in the air, ambulance and commissioners car pull up and ask if its really worth hurting myself further, to which Q says no and pulls himself from the race and like a big kid throws his helmet into the lava fileds
So 30 miles in on the bike and thats the end of my race 

Back in the apartment now, going for a shower and then out to support the pirates still on the course and get drunk

Today was not my day

kudos to everyone who puts themselve on the start line for this event

PS I had to get my helmet back

This morning sea swim was choppy and salty

1 hour on the bike, fighting with the cross winds to stay upright, when you come out of the wind you are drenched in sweat

someone tell me why I thought it would be a great idea to do this race agian
