Stafford to South Africa via Edinburgh

We’ve all been there. We’ve finished a race, looked at our time, picked up our medal and gone about collecting our kit before going home without a second thought to the prize giving and roll down ceremony. This is what we did after Ironman 70.3 Stafford. It wasn’t that we had a particularly slow time, on the contrary Leanne was in the top 5 and I was also at the sharp end of the age group, it was just that it didn’t even cross our minds to go to the roll down ceremony. Maybe the World Championships weren’t on our radar then? Whatever it was, we packed up and left only to be told afterwards that both our names were called at the roll down.
