Happy birthday to me!

Yes, it's my birthday, not my blog's birthday or anything silly like that. How things have changed in the last few years... I got a two piece tri racing suit as my main present and I am crossing my fingers for the New York Marathon lottery draw which is any day now. I have to say, one good thing about triathlon and Marathons is that now I'm looking forward to being 40 next year, when I'll be competing as the youngest in my age group...

Last year I spent my birthday in Paris (no, wait, it wasn't like that...). It was the time of the volcanic ash cloud that caused aeronautical chaos all over Europe. A couple of work colleagues and I managed to get to Paris on the Eurostar, arriving at the hotel late in the evening, and then we had to get up at the crack of dawn to catch the first plane to fly out of Paris for about a week. So it wasn't exactly a romantic candle lit dinner celebration. This year we will be driving five hours to Asturias....


  1. Happy birthday to you Rob! Wish you a good gift one month later, that is, finisher in Brazil Ironman!!!
