  • no chance - I need my brake blocks

    if I don't beat the cut off then I don't beat the cut off, although it hadn't crossed my mind that I wouldn't

    what I lose in the swim and on the bike I should hopefully gain on the run

    maybe image

    anyway, there's no cut off at Bala
  • I used cut off as a metaphor, meaning the moving cut-off………..  Me image

  • eeek, are we racing Barley?

    ok then!
  • LOL at all the posts, If i ever manage to finish IMCH i am definatley getting a tattoo of the M dot. I do have a few tat's already, but i want to be proud that i have achieved an Ironman, and if anyone asks what it is, and then say they could not do it then i will be happy to tell them "if a fat git like me can do it then anyone can" i know it's a logo of Ironman, but i just see it as 3.8k swim,180k bike,42.2k run, But have no idea after seeing all the pics of tat's what i may have.

    If Funkin does get one, he'd better not put that 5 stone back on that he's lost.  It might get a touch distorted...

    I guess I'd best do an ironman every year to keep the weight off then...

    I just assumed as it was Barley that it had smutty connotations ...
  • So who got the Tattoo's done ? or is going too image
  • And did Debbo ever get her legs waxed?
  • I think I'd decided on "no" earlier in the thread, and I'm sticking with that, no tattoo for me.....
    Strangely it has nothing to do with the tattoo itself, the brand etc.. but more to do with the fact that even though I loved the day and feel proud of finishing, it wasn't a life-defining moment for me.... maybe if I do another IM and race it next time I may feel different.
  • I have one and its rubbish.  I wish i had thought harder about getting it.  Its on my hip/back area so not too noticeable but if someone said that they could remove it for free, i would get rid of it.  Personally, i feel its cheesy in front of triathletes and non triathletes have no idea what it is.
  • I had decided yes before doing it, and now I'm not so sure, but I can't work out why. Tempted by a teeny silver mdot pendant though.
  • I think I'll just follow you Ditchy (and Meldy) and stick a dot after the "M" in my name image
  • Before I did IMA I was planning on getting one but then life interfered and I didn't get round to it.  Now I'm quite glad I didn't although I'm still tempted by a swim/bike/run logo on my ankle, like IW.
  • I won't be getting one - but if I do another ironman and do well I might be tempted......... the jewellery is also nice!

  • I did mine after my second and after I had comitted to my third.

    I really like it and it mostly brings me good comments and has started many conversations in surprising situations.

  • got mine and added a few more , got jan a gold belly button M dot made by local goldsmith ....
  • Warning.

    People should be careful about having tattoos.

    There are side effects.  You might find it brings out previously hidden urges regarding cyclists:
    what tattoes do to some people.

    Bet if he had a wood pecker on they'd haev left him well alone image
  • I saw a bloke at the airport with an 'anklet' of Ironman logos around his lower leg. Without looking too hard, I'd say he had about 5. Presumably he'd done 5 IMs. This was the Friday before the race and he had a bike box.

    As he was obviously competing and his leg was full, I don't know where he was starting the next set. I must say, any thought of an IM tattoo was wiped away after seeing his design.

  • I'm undecided as to whether I would get one, think if I could find a design I liked then probably would get one somewhere discreet.

  • errmm  after thinking I wouldn't get one I am now considering a small black little number.....image
  • can I just add, if I were to do an IM, I would have a massive M. right across my bleeding face.

     I think that tells you more about my ability to do an IM than my opinion on tattoos

  • At IMCH I saw a guy with one m. on his right ankle, the left ankle had an m. that was oulined with drops of red falling into it and he had another full m.d on his shoulder. Huh>?>
