It was a close days racing with the favourite Sam Gardner (#148) coming in only a second ahead of second place (#325) - the race results are here if you are interested:http://allabouttriathlons.co.uk/results.php
Underfoot the conditions were good-to-firm as the cold had hardened up the soft ground, as had the ice and snow that still had settled up at newlands corner. The sand up St.Marthas Hill broke up after a few runners had gone over it, so conditions were as dry and heavy going as usual.
Heavy cloud was the main welcome for trying to take photographs, and it wasn't until about 50% of the field had gone back past the church that the sky began to break into bits of blue between the clouds. Overall perfect conditions for running (in winter, in england), if a little on the cold side.
For those of you who made it to the Barn for breakfast afterwards - how many of you noticed Sandi Toksvig in there too? I was too British to interrupt her Saturday morning, choosing the full english to pass the time. Worth a try if you're in Guildford any time and like a fry up. The salmon and scrambled eggs is a plateful to behold.
Anyway, you probably didn't want to sit here reading about a great Saturday breakfast on a Monday morning - you wanted to show off what you did at the weekend. WelI I figure there's on average 20 photos each - so get to the gallery and have a good download.
Stick them on your facebook and drop me an email link to prove it ! (because that would be cool) firstname.lastname@example.org
