Relay members needed!
Hi all *wave* I know it's been a while since I stuck my head in, but life has just been very very very busy recently! Should all calm down a bit shortly so I can have a catchup on what everyone has been up to, but until then....
I had entered Vitruvian Tri as an individual this year. However; a little bike accident & broken shoulder sort of got in the way of that plan & as I've only just got back in the pool this week there is no way that I will be able to do it on my own. So, rather than pull out are there any folks out there who want to do it as a relay with me?? I will be able to do the bike so am looking for a swimmer & runner....
Might be able to help out, depends on the date though!
Oops, sorry, I guess a few more details might help!!
It's 70.3 distance & is on Sat 8 September near Leicester.
OK in that case yes I can help out, assuming you can change your entry to a relay. If you put me down for the swim! I'm not particularly fast though!! Probably about 45 mins for the swim!!
I've got the Glasgow half marathon the weekend before, I think I'd be pushing my luck to do 2 half marathons inside a week!
Shas I might be up for the run but I'm sh*t at the moment to be frank. So willing to take one for the team but thinking best to step aside if anyone else step's in. Just pointed some good swimmer's your way.
So Little sister Shas and Trucker relay. Cool
ST - the vit run course wont be anygood for a recce for the mara - even though its a part of hte same course the Vit is run on the dam mainly so doesnt take in all up and downs and trail parts, its basically a road half mara, in fact some road halfs are more hilly
I really am sh*t at the moment if someone else whats to do it.
any excuse there cake!
Actually sarah has pointed out that I had agreed to help her mum's teddy bear show in london that weekend. You can't make it up sometimes.
So Little Sis is good for the swim but still looking for a runner if there are any takers...? I might throw a post on one of the other forums too (scary to go outside the triathlon forum safety net I know, but sometimes you just gotta do it!!).
Cake - I'm really not fussed on times at all if you did want to do it, but if you have to attend to teddy bear duties then you gotta do what you gotta do
If you can't get anyone I'll take one for the team kid and will talk to bookie about it. I'm suprised no-one else has said yet they are interested.
If anything happens nearer date and you need a swimmer, give me a shout. Im fairly local and will be at event anyway, so can swim at short notice.
Im rubbish at running so you would not want me for that.
I would be up for swimming and intend to be supporting anyway.
Just a quick message to say after a bit more digging found someone through a friend of a friend that lives nice & close in Leicester and is available so all sorted now, but thankyou to all for your help, much appreciated!!
thank christ for that through I would have to do some training or something. Shas good luck kiddo and hopefully see you soon.
