And they're away!

 

RACETIME: 00:00

 

Whoever wasn't awake in Port Macquarie 10 seconds ago has just been woken up, as a massive cannon just signaled the start of the race. The competitors are away, the music is roaring, the 2008 Panthers Ironman Australia has begun.

 

Finally.

Lovely scenic run you have there roo. I almost had heart failure as I had forgotten to charge my Forrunner and it died 10 mins into my run. I was lost without it! :lol::lol:

 

Fark I wish I was up there. :D
