watched becci compete in chester triathlon this morning. i managed to get out of bed for 5.30am which is an amazing achievement even relative to bec's brilliant race result of 3rd. she did great finishing in a time of 2h25min57sec and clocking the fastest run leg in the field. she was 27th i think after the swim (1500m in the river dee at 8.10am is beyond my comprehension), ploughed through the field on the 40km cycle like a possessed jenson button cutting up a formula 1 race coming to transition in 6th then made up several minutes to catch and pass 3rd place on a storming run in the rain. bec is definitely not one to boast so i'll do it for her. brilliant.
speaking of jenson button he won the canadian grand prix today having had to pit 6 times including a drive through penalty, two crashes, rain so heavy the race was suspended for hours, and working through the field from last place at one point. it nearly compared to becs performance.
