Big race day

Today has been a bit different to usual in that it was the Western Australia Ironman race( 2.4 mile swim 112 miles cycle race then finish with a Marathon ) in which our eldest daughter Abi was taking part so we have been watching most of the action via video link over the Internet, and i have to tell you it is hard work when your kids are doing something like this, as you mentally run all the way with them so it was quite a relief when she finished and i could have a cup of tea. Her time just for the record was 13 hours 42 mins 59 seconds, her goal was to beat her previous PB and thankfully she did by about 1hour 10 mins, so if you read this Abi you can retire now and give us a rest.

The picture is of her finishing the first one she did last year as today's picture is not yet available.

Hi James, congratulations to your daughter for beating her own record! You surely deserve a much-needed rest!

Digtoplant, this is Walk2Write. Seems we have a connection in dynamic monikers as well as with Kanak, who is also very dynamic. I like your initial description of the race: quite breathless. Congrats to your daughter!
