Challenge Barcelona and a good video of Marks Arch to Arc record.

Bella, Charlie and I are back to Leysin now. The weekend went very well for Charlie, he and granny and grandad Bayliss had a great time it seems.

Bella and I didn’t have such a great weekend without Charlie. The race wasn’t a success for us both. I had a good swim and fine bike coming off with the front group with just 1 guy 8mins ahead. I was looking forward to the run but for whatever reason I just had nothing and got slower. I managed to finish in 9hrs 44mins with a 4hr 19min marathon time:) my slowest ever marathon time. But I was pleased to finish, I just kept trying to find a way to get myself going again, which is possible in Ironman but didn’t happen on Sunday.

But never mind, back to Leysin and the sun is shinning so we are enjoying it while it lasts.

The video below is of my brother Marks Arch to Arc record. He is the fastest ever and the only person to complete the swim section without a wetsuit! Last week somone attemted the same but was pulled out of the water after 16hrs with a body temp of 30C and salt water on his lungs, he is now out of intensive care but still in hospital I believe, we wish him well and hope he recovers well. It just showed what an incredibly tough challenge this is, especially to swim the channel in the middle and without a wetsuit. Anyway the video below gives you a good idea of what it was all about.
