Great racing, pirates!!
Where's the race report?
Top work Whiz.... What's your treat gonna be?
Great racing Whiz.
My treat is Star Trek into darkness on DVD and a few days off! I can't eat at the moment managed like 5 mouthfuls... Stomach has shut down
Aw mate, not even a beer? Darkness is top quality though... enjoy the rest
I feel a bit woosey to be honest and managed a yazoo and a bit of a omelette it's annoying as I need too eat.... A beer will make me sick I think!
Sounds about par for the course! Well done
Blisters in in 13:50; nicely!
Does anyone know what 'spotter' means on the tracker?
Not a clue; the time seems to be at about 9.8k on the run for everyone I've looked at; can't see the point though...
I think it means last seen?
Well done Pirates!
Whiz, recover well. You beat Chris Goodfellow by 1min8s. FWIW he was the first AGer at Outlaw last year and has since turned pro. Onwards and upwards!
Good to meet so many new faces yesterday, and to support you today,
Nope, Carl is now at 30k and still has spotter time for 9.8k...
Weird one, that.
That's what I couldn't work out. And to have it only 200m from a timing mat doesn't make sense either
Lovely to meet you all yesterday and today, great pirate support on the course. Thought i had a bad day and still won M55 bling, sweet. Well done to all the pirate finishers
Brilliant effort, DD
Schmunks, it really does seem a complete waste of time, doesn't it?
The tracker is fecked. Barlos has a 30k time before his 25k.one
Assuming it's just a glitch, he is on target for his projected time
There is a 35k time for Fraggle
come on Fraggle and Barlos.
I expect they'll be a race report from me later in the week but briefly, had a really good day. Got ever so cold coming out of the water but otherwise the swim was fine at was about what I hoped for (80 mins). Bike - I wanted sub 7 and got 6hr 26 so well happy with that. Run was my first ever marathon so I had no idea what I'd do. 4hrs 09 is certainly good enough for me. Overall 12hr 14. Well pleased.
Would've liked to hang about to see Fraggle and Barlos in but my wife - who has been my support team and has looked after the children all day - has had enough so we've given up for the day. Now I've stopped I've realised that I'm knackered too!
Also would've liked to meet Whiz. I don't think shouting "Go Whiz" as he sped past in the opposite direction counts
Finally, thank you for all the support. It helps so much in an event like this.
Hear on fb that Barlos and Fraggle have finished
Well done Pirates. Rest and celebrate well.
nice racing all
knew it was a good idea not to race henley as wizz would have wizzed by me
Massive thank you to all the pirate supporters at Henley yesterday, you guys rock!
First IM in pirate colours and I've never so loved.
Lovely to meet some more of you (even if just shouting at each other on the bike turnarounds) and can't wait for the next one.
Well raced everyone!
Never *felt* so loved...
I'll go back to sleep!
Nice to meet some of you yesterday. That swim was really horrible. Until next time!
