Leg report in answer to demand from Red - still not able to run properly, am limping but will try and run again tomorrow, I need to be able to complete the run at the end of Sunday's sprint triathlon.I'm really frustrated to think I may not be able to run a 5km! The 500m river swim and 23km bike ride I have no fears about, I'll certainly race up to the end of the bike leg and cross my fingers for the run. I keep thinking, even if I make my leg worse, it's the last race of the season.
TE I know what you mean about T-shirts, I have a whole cupboard full of shirts I haven't worn in years but can't bring myself to get rid of, each one is a memory. About online entries, that same scenario has happened to me several times, it's frustrating.
Runningfox - My running has been confined in recent years to the run at the end of a triathlon, or running in the woods with the dogs. I have been running since I was 11 and began as a track runner specializing in hurdles, then I became an orienteer before running my first 10km aged 23. I was 31 when I ran my first marathon, 42 with my first triathlon and 50 when I raced my first Ironman tri, finishing in 15 hours 51 mins and 31 seconds, which incidentally still remains my best IM time. My best marathon time is 3hrs 48 mins done in Munich.
