    Crumbs... that really was a surprise, wasn't it? I'd thought better of the lady's grammar.
  • Bump for OC!
  • Yippee!! The Vit thread boinged. How many of us are in this now and how many camping?

    Racing
    Soup Dragon (hoping not to be last or next to last this time)

  • I have had to pull out of this due to injury, so once again, The Vit manages to beat me image

    I have cancelled my hotel, but am still considering coming along to support

  • Thats really tough luck Schmunkee - the Vit is really jinxed for you it seems.  image
  • It does seem that way, doesn't it image

    If you ever do a Vit course recce, please count me in (date dependent) as I wanna smack the arse of the Ripple at some point.

    Am allowed back in pool from Monday, gentle cycling in three weeks, running in 6-7 weeks, so no reason why a jaunt out should not be possible July/August time

  • Recce sounds good in the summer. Perfect. image
  • Have just had a word in hubby's shell like and he has agreed to come with me and support...............wooohoooooooooooooooo.  Loved racing this one last year and going to enjoy supporting you lovely lot.image
  • I think I may have entered but blanked it from my memory
  • or it might have been cowman...............
  • ................ or both...
  • Well I think I may sneak my wetsuit/bike/trainers in the car and then if anyone needs a relay member I could just step in and help out. image   Ssshhhhh don't mention that to hubby though.
  • Plum - your name was not on the list when I checked the other day.  So if you think you're doing it, you're not image
  • Subject to the calf healing properly, I may be up for the swim or the bike but wouldn't like to commit until far far closer to the day.

    I cancelled my hotel and wrote to Pacesetters the other day.  It was a sad sad day image

  • ^^ *makes mental note of Saffers plan* image

    Edit - adds Schmunkee to a possible relay team plan image

    Sorry to hear that Schmunkee. image

    We are not sure about camping/hotel.   Thinking maybe hotel the Friday night but Pirate camping on the Saturday as don't want to miss the fun.

    Mum's the word image  but I would say the swim doesn't appeal.....I am a bit scared of that swim start even now....LOL
  • I have a full entry for myself....and I still can't swim image
  • but you still have plenty of time.  All will be fine.
  • I also can't run or cycle at the moment because of my slightly dodgy back, but as you say, I'm sure it'll all be fine image
  • I think a penny is just dropping Frodo......have we just become friends on FB?  Do excuse me....real names and stuff and being blond!!
  • We are FB friends, Saffers image
    I have pink shoes as my FB avatar at the moment.
  • If I do come and support it will be camping on the Fri and the Sat as I can't justify the expense of a hotel if I am not taking part
  • Schmunkee....luckily for you, you don't have to keep my hubby happy. imageimage

    Frodo, plenty of time to get that back where you need it to be. image  Positive thinking.

  • Oh and lovely pink shoes they are too Frodo image
  • Little Ninja has been leading me astray with shoes image

    Yeah, but i would have to share a tent with someone who snores loud enough to wake the whole of Oakwell (and I am not talking about Soupy) image
  • Oooh you are sharing with my hubby then! image

    Only kidding.....he is nearly as bad but not quite!!!

  • I'll be camping and having to keep the hubby happy..... probably need to provide lots of booze....
  • Little list lady - you & me both are jinxed for the vit!  I entered last year but my knee was stuffed so had to do it as part of a team; entered again this year but by the time I recover from my little recent accident & can start training again it's probably pretty doubtful I can do it on my own.

    So....anyone fancy joining me as part of a team image While I should be swimming & running by then, I won't be up for those distances but will be ok for the bike so if anyone wants to join me for the swim & run please let me know!!

    I have actually booked B&B accommodation but if there are a bunch of pirates camping would love to hear more & how it all works etc; although I don't have any camping equipment which may pose a wee problem! image
