24 Jess November 3, 2013 at 1:07 pm

Seriously impressed with your time – you surpassed your expectations by an unbelievable amount. You’ve clearly got a natural talent for endurance sports – the longer the better!

It was actually your blog that made marathons accessible to me, and now I can’t imagine my life without them. I’ll never do a triathlon, let alone an Ironman, due to chronic back pain which is aggravated by cycling, but I’m sure you will undoubtedly inspire many readers to train for one. That’s such a positive thing to do, and something I’ve always liked about your blog.

Congrats to all of you!
