hehe I've done it before and I would've done it again last year
but I broke my collarbone so I had to watch. The problem
this year is that I had no intention of doing it. I was a half-hearted
backup. 2 weeks out, the main dude pulls out and I'm now the
one racing with no swimming or running training... pain, pain, pain!
After this weekend I'm hittin' triple kilo figures.. I'm not worried
about stopping, but the other two in my team are pretty quick
runners... doh! Better make up about 20mins in the 10k ride! :-D

dishing out something worse than what I've already
ridden in before...
