  • Any idea how quickly the 2013 event sold out?

  • I don't think I entered until August last year, Pudge.

  • Ah, thanks for that M..o.use.

    Our of interest, is there any significance to the dots in your name?  I'm guessing you have two ironmans and an outlaw to your name perhaps?

  • I'd keep an eye on it though, as it seems to sell out faster each year. Although that said, they did release about 100 places only a month or two before race day.  If you are prepared to train anyway, I think you can gamble on a last minute place if necessary and if you watch all the appropriate social media for updates.

    Sort of, the two dots after the M are one for an IM and one for a Challenge and then one after the O for the Outlaw.  I got another IM on Saturday but I'm thinking that M...o.use is just going to look stupid. image

    I wouldn't worry about typing all the silly dots either, Mouse is good enough.

  • 4 Months, I think, so plenty of time.

  • Please can someone take my computer away from me... image

    If I'm not careful I might end up doing something stuuuuuuuupid like entering!

    Being a redhead, the heat is NOT my friend and this would be suicide

     

    But it is very tempting....

    Hmmmmmmm

    Think there must a bug on the website, because it took all my details and then took all the payment details and then sent me email saying it was confirmed.

    Still don't know how or why

     

     

  • I too seem to have suffered from one of those momentary lapses in reason.

    I'm in.

  • Stop it you lot!! Everyone on twitter and facebook is tempting me to enter...I should wait till IMUK is out of the way.  That would definitely be the sensible thing to do...

    Remember its Lanza so normal rules dont apply,so the sensible thing to do is enter now  image

    It's Tim, he's a Tri-talk veteran, he thrives on peer pressure.

  • I told my OH the registration was open and he's now trying to bully me into doing it.... I think he's just showing his sadistic side...

  • Haha!! I guess I'm going to be having a conversation with OH and coach then...

    They're two different people by the way... image

    In all seriousness, having been on the island for a week long camp in February, there's something special about the island that's not like anything else I've experienced. 

    You feel it when you land till the moment you leave - the island gets a kind of hold on you and you know you'll be back again.

    It also makes the prospect of racing there mean a lot more than the other options for me next year, which would be IM Austria, Germany or Switzerland.

    One disadvantage is it's early so you have to train volume through the winter, but the advatage is that it's also over early in the year and I can spend summer with the kids.

  • Haven't even done my first IM yet ... although "Fancy a week in Lanzarote?" might be more attractive to the OH than "Fancy a weekend in Bolton?" this year.... 

  • Totally agree...and my OH agreed to Bolton... image

    Premier Inn at the Reebok, or All Inclusive at Playa del Carmen... image
