Sunday – 6th July 2003

It was a long day indeed, but a very good one. It all started with Matthew and me getting up at 5:00am. We got up so early because we were going to watch a Triathlon with someone that we know called Ashley Allen taking part. He did very well indeed. In come in at number 43 out of over 150 people. Which is very good indeed, because he had ever done a Triathlon before. So well done Ashley :).

In was also a really good day because I got to see lots of guys in wetsuits, which was one of the main reasons that I wanted to go. The best looking one was number 43, called Lawrence Fanous. Now he did look hot in his running, swimming and cycle gear. I only got one really good photo of him. But it was only the back of him. I would love loved to have got a photo of him, with his wetsuit on. He’s the sort of guy that I would love to model for my Wetsuitlads website that I am working on.

When we got back I felt very sorry for Matthew, because he to go to work. While I went to sleep for a number of hours.

I was a bit pissed off, because I said that I would cycle down to see him at 6:00pm. But for some reason my alarm did not go off. I have a feeling I may have set it for AM and NOT PM. I still went a cycle, down to see him. It just mint that I did not get there, while he he was still on his tea break.

When I got back from seeing Matthew at work. Mark and myself went to The Willoughby Arms to get food.
