Cake I know I want to, however I had a great time this year at AT but I've decided on the more local, sprint maybe Olympic distances for next year. The double can wait

Chris

for my part, 46, now 75lbs above a sensible weight. was active a lifetime ago, but been running and swimming a fair bit since last summer.  not doing enough bike but spent the money once upon a time for a proper racer ( back when steel was the material of choice for frames and carbon was well  for drawing with )

entered outlaw half and full, going in as a virgin and eyeing a wetsuit to fit in april so I can swim outdoors.

goals ? 7/14hrs events with another 70lbs of lard missing in action.

constraints, wife, kids, work, training indoors ( wife not trusting of me outside around vehicles and stuff ).

problems : ive got too many books, too much tech and too much attitude.

oh, and im going even if I get hauled off in an ambulance. and the wieght loss is necessary for the pirate costume to fit rather unlike a stretchy thing stretched to thin

location is staffordshire, but job means from bristol to durham and crosby to corby

3hrs daily commute, 8hr day job, local pools and beginniing a habit of training at oh my god, is that a time ?

Half distance for me too this year, full distance the year after. The mentor offer here seems genuinely generous. A big thanks to all those will to take part in it.

I'm in the same boat as iron donkey. Two HIMs this year...one being the pirate DIY one and the other being the brutal half in September. I'm based in cheshire, 33, started running about 18 months ago. First mara in October 2012 in 4,07. Used to be a decent swimmer but not done enough and I'm ok on the bike.
I would love a mentor for both the pirate DIY and the brutal half, as it stands the pirate DIY will be my first tri! Not sure who to approach direct so if anyone is still available and would like to help, come and say hello...cheers.

Just read through all of the thread and I am none the wiser, from what I can see all of the mentors have gone?

I know that, I also realise that we must never beat out mentor to the bar

I'd love the chance to run ideas passed those more experienced than me...since this is my first IM.  Am I too late?

 

Thanks
