I recently did Ironman Wales and completed in 14 hours. I am competing again next year as well as doing Outlaw.

During the IM Wales course saw the eye catching Pirate suits and heard the support the Pirates give. I suffered with a knee injury on the bike and one pirate was kind enough to wish me luck and another saw me twice to double check I was still going strong on the run.

How do I join your group of merry men (and women)?

Hollie, I was one of the pirates that spoke to you as we were soaking wet going up yet another hill.  Just join in the fun on here and as Max said i'm sure there will be some kit you can borrow. If I remember correct there are several pirates local to you.

(warning folks, she's good on the bike)

I thought Holy Cradduck was a pirate name

Welcome Hollie.

I'm a bit confused though Foo.  Was she a lap ahead of you or something when you overtook? Only if you say she's good on a bike and you overtook her .... ,   (Yes, I know, Hello kettle!)

Seriously Hollie, you need a decent Pirate name!  I'm sure we can come up with something very quickly if you can't! But, you may not appreciate it much!!

So who's going to start?

How about Fanny?  

No, not for that reason!  You lot have some dirty minds!  Honestly!    

As in 'Fanny Cradock' that well known former TV cook of course and their last names are similar!!

Sorry for the delay and awful punn in my first post. Depsite my age I am shit with technology and didn't know how to find my post again...

As for the name I know it's not wise to leave it to you, maybe some 'helpful' directions towards one. I did think Fanny would come up though...

And great to track you down Flat Footed. I think what you meant to say was I was good on the bike until my knee buckled. Managed to pull out the run though somehow.

I'm also doing Outlaw next year as well as Wales again . Am also going for Kona after finding out a family tragedy when I crossed the line so doing it in memory of my niece. Would love some kit!

Thanks all! (know I now how to find this thread I'll be checking again sooner)

Crollie, sorry Holly 

Kona? are
