Sorry we missed the meet-up - got held up parking and then we had to find the loos - and it transpired the pub wasn't where we thought!! I had a bit of a mare of a race - but Mr AL stormed to a PB despite his shoelaces coming undone and his phone falling into a puddle!
Is anyone else's finishing text about a triathlon???

I enjoyed that. Ran it at a slower pace than last week's marathon but I'm happy with that, having had a mild virus for a couple of days. A long sleep yesterday afternoon seems to have helped.

Great to meet Nelly! Hope you had a good run.

Nice to meet you Becca & sorry I missed you AL.

I see NN put in a fantastic time.

I PB'd by 2mins, so am very happy.

Well I was right about the weather. Organisation seemed good from my experience - I'm guessing about 5000 runners in the end?

Great runs Nelly and Mr al. Obviously credit goes to you AL.

Couldn't imagine that a week after a marathon becca. Top stuff.
