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)?
You just have just start posting on here on threads that take your interest you will soon get used to people and the " characters" on here if you want some pirate kit I think you have just missed the boat for this years order but lots of people havecspare on here they are willing to lend /sell and if you are thinking of IM for 2014 how about joining the trip to IM Nice Welcome
... oh and sleep with Barlos (allegedly)****I hasten to add this was added to the constitution a year after I joined
Not again!, dive for cover.
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)
Burn the witch
get yourself a better pirate name for starters
Hi...I did Wales but was a bit slower than you and loved it............I also did outlaw which was much much flatter........
I'm doing Outlaw again next year.......

I thought Holy Cradduck was a pirate name
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!!
Yeah, 'cos the last person who did that ended up with the name.....Gladys. And she's a man!
I think Meface had it done to him too
Yep, I did it to him but he did ask for it
Have we scared her off?
Shall we just rechristen her while she is away ?? I am sure she wont mind ...
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!!
How about Crollie Haddock? It worked for Candy Ollier...
Love it !!!Crollie Faddock
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)
