Joy at Boston

Once again I signed up for Boston. As usual, arranging transport was harder than doing the race :-). Joy got to ride on Anton's trailer (thanks!) but I was another matter.

Here I am:

Not enough compression, which together with a variety of other flaws in my sculling style explains why I didn't win my category. But! I did handily beat the old Mas Nov D 1x course record, and I did come in under 5 hours, which I was rather pleased with. Though doubtless the tailwind had something to do with that.

Top tips from this year:

  • Gels not chocolate bars made for far faster food stops: good.
  • Despite extra padding, my arse still hurt. Lots.
  • Transport is a pain. Did I mention that at all?
