I've posted base jumping vids before...

But this is a whole new level....

Great music, great camera work, great scenery but most of all - so very, very, very scary.

Town of Runners...

Looks like it will be a fantastic film.

There are screenings around the country,  but don't live near one and want a screening near you?  Then you need to demand it...

When you're tiny you record a 'first' every day.  The first time you see a tractor knocking in a fence post can be a pretty big deal when you're 2 1/4.

This weekend C-man recorded his first triathlon thanks to Hereford Triathlon Club.  It was their 20 year celebration and the festivities included a kids tri for all ages.

C dragged me round the swim (2 lengths)

You can imagine transition was a bit of a struggle... Mummy's expertise in this area was vital in shaving off a few precious seconds...!

Then smashed the bike (2 laps of the hall)

From Charlie First Triathlon May 2012

Before refusing to do any running until he had his medal... upon receiving it he graciously decided to do the run (1 lap of the hall) with his Auntie Angela.

He's been proudly wearing his medal ever since and if asked how he got it replies, after some thought, "Unnning.... and Biking !"

A huge thanks to everyone at Hereford Tri who helped organise and the Tetley family for coming up with a pair of micro-poo-proof swimmies at the last moment!

I have a notoriously low pain threshold...

But I am able to put up with minor levels of discomfort for a while (albeit with non-stop whinging).  And I've noticed that I've got progressively better at doing this (putting up with pain, not whinging... I've always been brilliant at that!).

It turns out that this is likely to be a useful by product of training.  Result!

If Carlsberg wrote ebay adverts...

Then this would surely be their creation.

You'd better hurry, as once it's gone, it's gone!
