BlueWombat Ran with a broken wrist. Arrived late and crossed the start two minutes or so after everyone else, after a side trip to the nearby service station in search of water. Not a bad time given i have done very little running lately. Cambridge & Coleridge AC, Cambridge University Hare & Hounds 4:38:26 5:14:47 5:14:47 48.56
Cobra Batman What a day, Had a problem at the train station and missed the train, but from the moment  I told Mark they couldn't do enough for us and even picked us up from Stratford train station and allowed us to the start half an hour late and kept the marshalls in position. Brilliant on top of that I had a great run and finsihed very strong.

man,slow Entered relay, not sure whether draw 2nd or 3rd leg, lets hope 2nd i hear it's tougher but more scenic! Stourbridge RC, Black Country Triathletes 3:38:12
Matt the Brum Just hoping to finish.  First race since May, fingers crossed the legs will hold out.

Most comfortable run I've had since getting injured, couldn't believe it.  Finished 1st/56, although quite a bit slower than last year. Stourbridge RC 3:08:10 3:16:40 72:00:00 3:16:40 72.74

Velociraptor They moved the finish-line forward half a mile to allow me to sneak in just under 5:30. Bourneville Harriers ROCK :o) 
I absolutely loved this race. Beautiful course (and not, as I had anticipated, at all boring). Fantastic organisation and very friendly. Wasn't really racing, but wouldn't have been any faster if I had been. And great to meet so many Fetchies, RW-ites and Brummies along the way. Cumberland AC, FERC 5:20:58 5:29:58 5:29:58 51.52
