The morning after the day before.
What a great day only spoilt by the cold rain at the latter stages. Still even that was better than was forcast.
It was great to see familiar faces both before and during the event in the guise of BT'ers.
For an Englishman along way from home it was great to have friends out there. I think that alone proves what a great resource this site is.
Well as for the race, I had a poor 1:31 swim, a solid 6 hr bike and a 3:49 marathon giving a total finish time of 11:29:03
My goals were a sub 4hr marathon and 11:30 total.
As you can guess I am pleased with myself, although very very sore.
hope everyone else had a good race. I know tobin did as I saw him at the finish having done a PR of 3:07 . Well done mate.
Hopefully see some of you at awards dinner. Just hope by then I have got my appetite back!
2 weeks off training now before resuming training for IM UK in 6 weeks. I just hope the people of Bolton embrace the whole event like the community of CDA. they were great and also the hundreds of volunteers including my daughter Charlotte who spent over 6 hrs at run feed station 1. Thank you all.
