The racing started today with the Fleet Half Marathon!

Hi all

this is my first attempt at the blog

I went to the Fleet half marathon today and scored a pb!! not bad for a 40 year old. I just keep getting faster with age.
I scared myself early on with a 5:25 for the 1st mile but knew it would get slower....and it did. I seemed to run around the 5:40 - 5:50 mark and finished in 1:15:41 taking a whole minute of my previous best. Well chuffed.
Let's hope it's a good sign of things to come in Ironman South Africa. 3 weeks today!
You can follow my race at ironmanlive.com on 5 April 09. I'll try to make it worth it watching.

Excellent race from you. However I am concerned that the rumours of you being injured for the past few years have been false and that you have been training your little cotton socks.

Nice photo with the 80's tri suit
