Synergy Swimrun wetsuit

Synergy Swimrun wetsuit

First time at Petrol Station wearing a wetsuit

So after the walk at Stainmore Summit, wearing the HUUB Brownlee Agilis wetsuit. I had to choose to keep it on or take it off. I was like if AI Lads, can do it! So can I!

But it mean, I no choice but to keep it on for the rest of the drive back to England! So around 150 miles of driving! Which took me just over 3 hours! Just wish it had been day light the whole way! In the summer, I will need to do it again!

I did, have to stop off at a Petrol Station on the way back! I did go for easy option and put a jumper on over the top of the wetsuit! Once back in car, the jumper came back off again!

Here is a mini video, to show it really did happed!!
