|Wet Wet Wet at Worthing Tri 2015|
Anyhow - This was indeed how we felt the rain on Sunday, as did pretty much everyone we saw running or walking. We felt the rain in both our fingers and our toes.
However, nowhere in the song does it mention rain. The one rain scene at the end of the film where our bumbling hero played by Hugh Grant realises that he does love her after all, is generally considered to be ruined by her delivery of the line "It is still raining ? I hadn't noticed" . Well we did.
The rain on Sunday wasn't really that romantic, and it was wetter. We didn't notice the rain that much either, mainly because of the hypothermia that was setting in, despite wearing winter clothes and waterproofs.
Welcome to Summertime everyone and well done on getting through it !

Here are some other galleries from past weeks - which judging by the web traffic have been missed - probably due to the start of the summer holidays and end of exams:
At the Worthing Tri on Sunday it started raining at about 8:30, but it wasn't until 9:45 that the main squall hit - so the sprint tri was basically dry, and the standard tri - wet... As it was the European qualifiers - they need to bear in mind that it does rain in europe too, so all good training in case it does on the big day...

Meanwhile over near the River Thames, on the Purple Patch Down Tow Up Flow (DTUF) Half Marathon... it had already started to rain when the race started at 10am
|All good at the Marina - boats available in event of flooding|
|The flood plains were dry as long as you ran fast enough|
|Down past the Lock at Dorney (might take a strimmer to that hedge stopping the view next time)|
|Keep your feet dry they said. Good Luck we said.|
|Not quite what they meant though|
|Double thumbs up and flying into the finish. No supporters on the bank this year in the rain though...|
|Mel and Rich made it round with the biggest smiles of the day|
We had phtographers at the start, just after CP2, on the section at Bignor Hill after CP3, up the climb after CP4 and then at the finish from 9:20pm - because even at CP4 it started to go dark and we like a bit of light if you want a view of the countryside behind you...
Very well done to everyone who made it through the 60miles and also through the rain !
|Not far enough in for some people|
|Good team running|
|Oxfam team finish at the Brighton racecourse|

Congratulations on finishing the challenge of the weekend and the weather !!
until next time
p.s. yes I did like four weddings and a funeral when it came out, and Wet Wet Wet in the 1980's and 1990's. I also like Ikea Hejne Shelfs for garage storage with the deep shelfs...
