So in an attempt to gain any advantage I can I went to see the Brownlees on Monday, for anyone that doesn’t know these are the guys currently ruling the world in the triathlon sense. In fact Gold and Bronze in the Olympics and this season everyone else is competing for second !! (they currently have not raced each other this year yet)
They were signing their book in Leadenhall market in the City, Jonny had just flown in from Madrid where he smashed the field in the ITU event on the Sunday and looked pretty good.

The plan was to get some ‘Brownlee magic dust’ in order to enhance my chances for the big day..guess what, it doesn’t exist, so it seems I’m on my own, but it was great to meet two genuine ENGLISH stars.
