    The forecast is looking more sunny. Chris was right after all.
    I'll be travelling across this evening in view of the early start.

    Whatever the forecast said, the actual weather couldn't be faulted this year. Overcast and dry with temperatures cool but not cold. Even the ploughed fields were dry. Perfect

    I think I might be down to your pace tomorrow Morgan Note to self - do not switch off and follow someone while eating cake - can be costly

    as a third timer, I thoroughly enjoyed this again. took nearly 3hrs off my disastrous numpTing around in last years wet n cold! and was well chuffed to get under 8hrs. Agreed, the conditions and going couldnt have been much better. There was loads of Scots competing (and stealing 'our' top places ) - They should organise more races up there !

    I did a quick tally of comparing 08 + 09 top results:

    4th in 08 was 2nd 09, 54 mins quicker
    12 -> 3rd, -1h10
    29 -> 8th, -1h34
    17/18th -> 11/12th -1h08
    19 -> 15th, -50m
    21 -> 21st, -39m
    26 -> 24th, -47
    and not comparable - me:
    60th -> 13th, 2h51m quicker!!

    Aye... Coniston was my last tri for a while as I want to focus on the BGR.

    But Coniston... what a long day that was... well for some of us.

    Definitely want to do that one again, but not just now.

    Been a good year?
