Me
 
In 2002 i ruptured my ACL and MCL playing football and was told i would not be having an op on the NHS and could never play again (along with many other things!)... After doing some freeride / downhill MTB'ing for a couple of years, I starting to swim again in August 07 and thought, i cycle, i swim...all i need to do is run a little..how about earning a little money for charity and sign up for the London Oly! I went on to enjoy my first season in tri so much I have done a 2nd, gone sub 2:30 for an Olympic distance got round an ironman and am still going!
When not training I can be seen at the Boleyn Ground being a long suffering season ticket holder at the 1966 World cup winners West Ham Rolling Eyes

Round 4 of the Kent XC league was a slightly earlier start at 2pm as it was men and kids only this week as you only race 4 of the 5 rounds. It was going to be a relatively flat course but I knew the park and knew that there was potential for something out of the ordinary....and there was, they decided to run us though a bog on each lap!
The gun went off and lap one of four was used to just settle in as usual. It was quite quick in parts but the bog was horrendous. I made a note to run to the right not the left on the second lap. The rest of the lap was steady with a smallish hill in there but not too bad, and there was more bog in one section, but it was only ankle deep, not knee deep. Lap two I took heed and went to the right of the bog only to nearly disappear down a hole. It was deeper...Ok back to plan A for lap 3. I was getting lonely now with no one to race. I had left the very slow and was watching the average runners in the distance but Im sure I would catch a few as there are always some who go off way to quick in these events. Lap 3 I survived the bogs of doom...done ok and caught a small group to help pace me round lap 4. OK now to turn it on, approached the bog and heard a squelch and my foot was wet....looked down and Id lost a shoe...GREAT! walked back through the mud and water, struggled to get it back on and had to work now to catch the small group. At least this gave me something to chase again and as we approached a mile to go there were 3 of us left. It was good fun and one of the guys tried to go but I held, he went again but i upped the pace, guy 3 was gone now hurt by the two injections of "pace" Wink then as we hit the hill I went but could still hear the breathing so I slowed a bit let the guy sit in and as we crested the top went again...still no luck I looked at him and said I hope you can sprint, laughed and went a third time. He didnt respond and I crossed the line in 46:58 for a good finish of 142nd out of 173. Not bad for me and a great cold but sunny afternoons run.

Afetr 3 events I sit in 68th in the Kent league. OK its mainly because I've raced every event but still...I'm quite pleased!
