Well done, Penny

Let's just take a moment to applaud my swim-training partner, and all-round, doggedly determined triathlete, Penny, who finished Ironman France in just under 16 hours. It's a brutal course (there's a 13 mile climb in the middle of the bike course - 13 MILES...up a mountain), and an already tough day was made a million times harder by the fact that the anti-fog spray that she'd used burned her corneas (after years of using the stuff without any problems), causing her profound discomfort and seriously blurring her vision for the next 15 hours of the race. Penny is one tough woman, and an inspiration.
