the return of three border tri Nadine


21/06/2012 by Carl Reynolds

Back from her adventures in Germany, Switzerland and Austria, healthier and wiser, Nadine was down the lido this morning with Nando. I did a length with them (and a few on my own), and then we chatted. And chatted. And chatted some more. Such are the demands of a swimmers life.

Being cloudy the lido was pretty empty. No mummies with ankle biters queuing up by the paddling pool, or freelancers sunning themselves and posing in their designer sunglasses. It was like the winter season days; members milling around making tea and toast, playing handball (thanks Jonathan and Alfonso) and…chatting.

Nadine’s trip is pretty special. Read all about it on the Nadine Horn: Three Border Triathlon blog. Oh and give her some dosh, if you’ve any to spare.

I got a nice plugin on Mr.Ape’s blog. […]
