GO JO

So so proud of my Daughter in law, she did the Iron man competition in Bolton on Sunday for the first time. 2.4 miles swim, 112 miles bike course and 26.2 miles run. She came 8th for swim, 42nd for bike and 46th for run out of 250 in her category. Brilliant results for first attempt. This is her half way through the run, she'd already done the swim and bike, and she's still smiling !! Well done Joanne.

Hi, Sokrackers, not sure what's next, but I'm sure they'll be something, she's always on the go. I wish I had her energy.

It takes effort, motivation and determination sadly I am limited in all areas - just human. Your daughter in law is so special. Does your son join in or just from the side lines?

She is an inspiration.

My son Jamie does some triathalons, but hasn't gone as far as Joanne. He supports her a lot though, he drove them to Bolton and booked them into a hotel for the night before and the night after and made and decorated an Iron man cake for her. They really are a lovely couple.

They sure are, I've been lucky, I was married to my first Husband for 33 years, unfortunately he died in 2001. I was devastated, but managed to pick myself up after a while and then met another lovely man. We've been married now for 5 years, and I feel like I've been given another chance.
