Ironman Wales, Tenby

Ironman is a tiring event where you swim 2.4 miles in the rough sea, cycle 112 miles and then run a marathon which is 26.2 miles.  Last Sunday my Daddy became an Ironman!  We saw him run to transition after the swim to get his bike and then we saw him go past. The cycle route went past Kiln Park where we stayed in our caravan.

This is me and my sister with the banners we made to cheer him.  We also had cowbells.

At Kiln Park there is an amusement arcade and I won loads of coins on one of the machines.  There was also a cool candyfloss machine so we were allowed some for a treat.  Click here to see the candyfloss machine

We saw Daddy zoom past on his bike and then we went into town and saw him run past doing the marathon.  He did 4 long laps! Each lap got lap bands and the colours were yellow, red, blue and green.  We stayed up very late at night to see him go through the finish line where we met Grandma and Grandad.  Then Daddy got his medal.
