Granite Man 2009

Don’t know whether this link will work, but here’s a link to my friend Heather’s pics of Granite Man 2009 http://www.facebook.com/home.php#/album.php?aid=120336&id=1108189592&ref=mf

Heather was amazing – first day on holiday in my home land of Guernsey and she got up before 6am to come and take these pics of my first sea triathlon. It was a superb event – great goody bag, great organisation and marshalling and great environment to compete in.

Wasn’t my best performance – poor run, but pleasing nonetheless!

Since link doesn’t work for some, have attempted to upload photos below.

  1. I tried to get Heather’s photos but came up with nothing. Anything else I can put in?

    • I thought Facebook might not allow people to see the photos unless your friends of Heather – anyway, have now downloaded them all and will try and upload them on here!!
