Good luck Pammie!

While I’m not lazing in bed on Sunday, 6000 miles…regular and blogrollee, Ordinary Life (aka Pamie Jane), will be spending (she hopes) around 14½ hours swimming, cycling and running around and around the sleepy village of Port Elizabeth in the Ironman South Africa triathlon.

For those of you who are wondering, that’s:

  • 3.8km swim (through shark-infested waters, nogal!)
  • 180km bike ride, and then, just because you do,
  • a full (42.2km) marathon.

Nuts. Completely and utterly nuts.

If you want, you can track Pamie LIVE on the day via the ATHLETE TRACKER link on
Her race number is 875.

Good luck Pamie, from all of us at 6000 miles…

Note: regular readers will be aware of my dislike for large-scale athletic events which disrupt the daily lives of local residents. This event, however, is completely fine by me as it is some 750kms away in PE.

  1. WOW Good luck then Pamie!! I wish I was fit enough to do that! The Mansfield HALF marathon is gonna kill me, let alone that TWICE with a bike ride and long swim! I may well track her on sunday! Good luck again 🙂

  2. Thank you VERY much for your support. It was greatly appreciated.

    I did not get eaten by sharks, although somebody did bite my foot??? I did not fall off my bike or die of heatstroke – both very good things.

    All in all it was a fantastic day. Thanks again.
