Awesome - inspiring stuff.

Ever considered motivational speaking? I'm sure you could do one of those management/self help books yourself after this...

Your race report reads more like the IM reports 'ordinary' people put in which in itself it amazing, taking twice as long to reach a similar point. It's a great read.

But what now? What's going to get the mojo going now the double is out the way?

Nice one Mr D.

First in the race, and by the look of it the first to post the Race Report! (I'm still writing mine!)

great report - you do realise some people wont read it bec they will think it is a pic of a super large bike stem - or is it just me!?

cant believe I didnt feature in it after all the help I have given you (acting as your rabbit at Draycote, slowing down so as to not overtake you on the run which would have been disrespectful etc )......

ps have you seen the comments about you on the RW thread?! Someone's got the hots for you and was v excited to see your bum in T2 and there's history too - when she first found you attractive etc. Laughing

Thanks Peter, you sure its not a fella.

Its been a long journey and yes, you were with me on a lot of it. It was great to see you running well in the early hours. You looked one of the strongest out there to me.

I enjoyed reading that report Towel, but it wasn't nearly as enjoyable as watching you doing it in person. The word 'awesome' is used a little bit too flippantly these days that sometimes it's true meaning comes across a bit diluted, but throughout this event you were truely awesome.

Sweet report, man.

Has to be said that no one can get through that alone ... I wish I had your support team even for a sprint. Be very thankful.

Chuffed for you and looking forward to your next adventure.

True, they were great. But thats how the club is. I have put in a lot of time helping others in the club through the year. They wanted to help me out i guess. Would have had more there if it was not for the relays on the same day.
