Driving up only counts if you're going to stop & give me a lift up the hill for the final run :)

I think I'll come along and watch :)

It's about time I saw some of these Pirates in action - and Multi's always good for verbal abuse ;)

Love you too, Tiger!!

You mean you'll get up at that silly hour to watch? You may as well bring a bike along and join in!

Tiger - If I can't run then you could do that bit for me :-)

Running up that Zig Zag never gets any easier does it?! But are you allowed to have one on the bike and another on the run?
13/10/2005 at 15:10
They don't usually have teams... but if I can't do it I'll try begging!

Who's been lying down on the job? There's a mattress (amongst other stuff) that's been flytipped halfway down Lodgebottom Road. Now if they could move it to halfway up the hill it might be useful...

Less than four weeks to go! Why ain't I excited?
20/10/2005 at 12:14
I certainly got excited when I received the race instructions! What's with this cut-off time of 2:45 to finish the bike ride? They clearly haven't enforced that rule in the past, so is it something that can safely be ignored or is it a new thing this year? There's no way I'm going to make that without driving myself into the ground, which will make the final run fairly pointless anyway. Since this was not mentioned in the application form, I'm thinking of asking for a refund.

Well, that's me stuffed then!!

I worried about the cut off last year... but it clearly wasn't enforced as I think I missed it and there were lots of people behind me.

I've been told I can start running again so long as I do it gently.. so there is still hope of me being there :-)

Looks like I'm gonna have to bale out on this for the third year running. No running since Sunday, and now I think I've got the virus that's working its way through Year 2.

Don't give up hope just yet Multi.... I've not run for 2 weeks...
06/11/2005 at 15:53
I have picked up a problem calf so that will be my entry fee wasted. I can't run, but I could certainly still crack the cycle in 70 minutes (did a practice run last week) if someone was short for a team.

What's really gutting is that I have collected a whole load of sponsorship pledges for Leukemia research.

Any Ballbusters out there?
09/11/2005 at 12:20
Yep, training completed and balls now wrapped in cotton wool ready for saturday. How about you?

Stockie - I htink if you contact the organisers they will give you a partial refund towards another of their races.

Multi - how you feeling? Hope you decide to come along and give it a shot.

I got over my calf injury and then fell off my bike so training hasn't gone quite to plan!
I thin I'll be pootling rather than racing round..... hope someone has booked nice weather for it :-)

There seams to be a problem with the weather!
14/11/2005 at 08:32
What problem? Weather was perfect in the end. Very hard but great fun, beat my 3 hr target time and the freebie top is excellent too.
14/11/2005 at 09:34
Indeed the weather was fantastic, not the showers that I had seen forecast.

Well done on your time Dave, I was pretty chuffed with my 3:30 :-)

Tops are great..... but as always far too big for me. Why can't any race organiser do small tops that really are small?
