12:00 am Me, Boats

Congratulations to Carl, who spent most of yesterday competing in the ORCA Longest Day Triathlon. That’s an Ironman-length triathlon, which for the uninitiated means a 2.4 mile swim, 120 mile bike ride and a full marathon. Which is clearly bonkers. Anyway, Carl managed it in 12 hours, 11 minutes and 26 seconds which sounds mightily impressive to me. But then, all I did this weekend was tinker with boats and then decide not to go out in them because it was too windy…

Frighteningly, this is the same Carl who I managed to beat in a run/bike/run event about eighteen months ago. Somehow I don’t think I could manage that now. Well, maybe if we tried it right now, this second - he’s probably a bit tired.
