So after a week of not sleeping well and constantly thinking about the race I decided to book some accomodation etc for the event.
I researched for hours and hours comparing hotels and locations compared to the race start which was Exmoor National Park in Devon. I picked the accomodation and booked it up. I went for the Dunkery Beacon Hotel B+B. http://www.dunkerybeaconhotel.co.uk/ , With fantastic trip advisor reviews and the mention of the ironman on their blog I thought they seemed the best choice for me. Deposit paid and then it sunk in, thats the race and accomodation booked... no going back now.
