Job done

Matt and Joe finish togetherMission complete.  Matt did himself and us proud today when he crossed that finish line at around 5.30pm this evening.  His aim was to complete and finish the 3.8km swim, 180km bike and 42km run as a thank you to everyone who has supported and donated to tri4joe over the past few weeks.  It was quite an emotional day for Matt and I, especially when I handed Joseph over to his Daddy so that they could finish together.

Matt’s finishing time was 10 hrs 46 mins (for a full breakdown of his splits, if anyone is interested, click here.  Matt’s race number was 2323). The weather as I said in my earlier post was dismal up until well into the marathon – I don’t think this helped anyone and there were lots of cold looking athletes out there today.

Waiting for Daddy to finishMatt is now tucked up in bed after a short leg rub to try and keep rigor mortis to a minimum.  Joey is snoring – it has been a long day for him too.  When Matt has a bit more energy I’ll get him to give you the low down on how the swim, bike and run went in a bit more detail.

Thanks again for all your support.
