Tempus Fugit

Postby jonathon.e » 20 Apr 2019 09:49

How time flies

The BCTTT will reach the grand old age of 10, this year, who would have thought it, from the early days of the 220 forum to today. The forum buddies T-shirt if you had one, to club kit, people came, some stayed, some moved on, but all enjoyed their time ( I hope ).
Not sure exactly when the Birthday would be, sometime in May when the t-shirts were first produced, or July when the club was first mentioned. Anyway, it is ten this year, Happy Birthday to one and all.

A decade. That's a good percentage of most people's lives.

I believe everything happens for a reason........possibly the most misused phrase in common usage :D

10 years??!! Where did that go?

Just passing through... loads of crap going on. Back in full time work (post redundancy) - which is good and bad... no time for any exercise, so very fat and unfit - need to get a grip on life again, but a lot to deal with first.
Back to C25K, and some calming yoga on the side to get my head in order.

Hope all are well...

Wow! From my perspective that's ten years of DNSs, failed plans, missed goals and poor choices.

But on the upside, there's a bunch of good stuff in there, too: a number of PBs and lifetime firsts; meet-ups; shared events; shared experiences and advice.

Mainly, the friends. Some of us have never met yet still stay in touch more than many 'real' friends, some of us have become 'real' friends. I have shared experiences with some BCTTTers that I wouldn't swap for anything.

Off the top of my head:

First 100km ride (thanks Ade and Nick for dragging me around Magnifitwat)
First 100 mile ride (again)
Longest swim ever in my pants (encouragement from Jibby and others, Brownsea)
Longest / hardest swim training session ever (Chris Weeks still owes me)
Most regular middle-distance run training seasons ever. (AndyB challenges)
Hardest I've ever cycled in a triathlon (trading places with CCS at Windsor)
Best sports-based laugh ever (all of you at the Relays)
Hardest sports thing I've ever done (Jon and Craig, with my mate Paul, Red Bull TimeLaps)
Best advice I've ever had in some dark times. (You know)
And of course countless meets at so many events, either competing together or cheering each other on. IF I ever need a shot of adrenaline I picture myself running down the finish of Windsor Tri, struggling, but somehow a "Come on Bopo!!" bellow from Simon helped me find a sprint finish in the bottom of the tank. Gets me going every time.

What a ride. Well done everybody for making it so good. A heartfelt thanks from me for some of the best of times.
I had fun once. It was awful.

That is a great list Bopo :D
And good to see that CCS is still going strong.
The FB club site has the date as 4th July, whether that is anything to do with I dependenc, I know not :lol:

The bcttt.com domain name was registered on 7 July 2009.

At 09:49:24, if you want more accuracy.

That's probably a good starting point for it being born. I.e. not longer talked about, but with a name and made real.
