Pirate DIY Half IM, The second coming!



  • I think Slaggi is on FB, if you pm me, we can sort out details.
  • thanks colourin can u inbox me your details.

  • If there staying at yours, you may find out why he is called Button Mushroom



  • I thought button mushroom was female.I'm getting all confused againimage

  • I'll let you know Seren!;-)
  • I'm a man with a button mushroom
  • Does that make you a " fungi" then mate image
  • Razor that was awful you should feel ashamed... I should be too I chuckled like a child. . .
  • Bricking it now. Only done one middle before which was little woody and that took 6:30hrs. Horrible course though. At least it gives me a chance to try out my nutrition plan for Outlaw
  • Dont worry Ozzy. I've only ever done one half it took me 7:50hrs.  Next weekend isn't going to be any quicker.  

    Looking forward to a fun social weekend. And a bit of biking/swimming/plodding. 


  • Jamie. image I'm ashamed.

    Ozzie Like Soupy says dont panic, its a great weekend with no pressure on any one to do anything they don't want to do... Oh and it s a good laugh as well, with brilliant hosts ( I think that gets me an extra sausage butty). image

    As Jordy has no concept of time, for the last (lost count of how many weekends!!!) he has thought the Pirates are coming. image   He can't wait.  Neither can i actually. image   If it turns out anything like last year, it will be fab! 

  • Mrs SAMrs SA ✭✭✭

    Razor .... noted "1 extra butty".

  • image Jo, tell Jordy we're nearly there.
  • I think we should start charging people for the butties

  • I think I'll change my mind about brilliant hosts.image
  • Hello all!!  Sorry i've not been on here for AGES.  I'll trawl back through in a sec to see what's happening, but i'm still coming and will help out on Saturday, but just do the run on Sunday (or I can swap if that helps folk?). Anyway, i'm such a slow runner at the mo, I should probably start when you're all out the pool, and I might just finish at the same time as you allimage

    Ozzy - its not  race for me. I don't even race at "races" lol. I complete rather than compete. image And sometimes I don't even complete. image

    Same for me, hahahaha.

    Right, i've read back and copied the race instructions.  Les Boules and myself are staying in a Premier Inn (I think) from the Friday, so we'll be around during the day/early evening I expect and can meet up with folk that are around? 

    SA / Mrs. SA - let me know if I can bring any food or supplies for the race. I'll be able to help out on Sunday morning for the swim/transisitions etc and then I can just do the run at some point on Sunday if that's okay.  Can't wait to see everyone and meet some new faces image

  • oh, just one more thing!!!  How much are the t-shirts, and how much for the event etc?

    Ta!! image

    I'm completely unprepared and haven't read this thread for ages so I have no idea what I am doing.

    As long as I can get a swim or two in I am happy to be a general dogs body for the rest of the weekend.  If I'm supposed to be doing anything else before arriving, please let me know as I'm completely disorganised

  • Lee its £10 for the t -shirt, everything else is free, you don't need to bring any supplies unless you want any gels etc, we will provide water and flat coke for the run.


    SuperCaz you can swim both days, you don't need to do anything else before hand, you have already paid for your t -shirt, the swim will be £4 for each day, have you got accomodation sorted?




  • SuperCazSuperCaz ✭✭✭

    Thanks SA.  I believe that Soupy has booked us into a hotel somewhere.  I'm relying on her to tell me where I've got to be and when.

    I'll get more organised after this weekend.  I'm got a mammoth swim event tomorrow and can't think beyond that at the moment.  Nerves are all over the place and frankly I'm scared about it.  Next weekend will be a welcome break for me.

  • Great you are only 1 mile from us then if you are staying with Soupy, are you coming up on the Friday?


  • SuperCazSuperCaz ✭✭✭

    I think so.  Need to coordinate with Soupy as to whether we are sharing transport etc.

  • Just checking in image.

    Not been on the forum for ages, real life has been mad busy, but I've been looking forward to this.

    Not long to go now, yey !!!

  • 100 lengths done in macc pool as a recceimage checked out the fire exit/t1 etc. can't wait
  • Not sure who is more excited about this in our house me, Mrs SA or Jordy


  • Holidays are comin', holidays are comin'

    Pirates are comin', pirates are comin'
