They’re Off!

Posted on August 7, 2011. Filed under: Uncategorized |

Well the swim has started and it is as mental as it’s looks on the you tube video! Grant managed to see Dougie at the transition point before the start and he seemed ok. In the car on the way here it was a balmy 19 degrees at 5.15am. Goodness knows what it is going to get to. However it has been very wet right up to the start which is not great for us Sherpas.
Rory has slept through the whole thing and not even the booming music or cow bells could rouse him.
Going to watch the lake for a bit and then make our way to the fence to see Dougie in transition. More to follow.
