thank you for your time
That has to be the most horrendous experience of my life! It was 39 degrees so non wetsuit. Had a really good swim but totally overcooked it on the bike (first 56 mile loop 2.50hrs second 56 3.20hrs!!! Oops also didn't eat enough!) died completely on the run (or should that be 'walk'!!!) thought it was curtains as went all faint (again just didn't eat as felt sick! Ooops no 2!!) finished in 13.38. Bren was awesome - 10.52hrs!!! Tony, like me suffered and came in at 14.20 something. Over 25% of the field Didn't finish because of the heat and over 500 competitors and spectators were taken to hospital!! Brutal! Xxxx
thank you all you your support raising money for a great cause
it was truly worth it!
