Agree mate. If i can keep making the same progress with FC that i have the last few months i'll be laughing.

Your right about that monkey, one less stresser.

Do you know when IMUK 2013 entry would open for Bolton & is it one of the ones that sells out in minutes?

I believe that it is shortly after this years event, I don't think it sells out to quickly but someone else will be able to better say, my question would be will it be in Bolton again next year?

No date confirmed yet! Past 4 years have been Bolton, but to be honest I don't care as long as dates remain consistent... I've got a wedding to attend just weeks before...

They should do it in Norwich. Two laps of Whittlingham Broad. Cycle a slightly extended Norwich 100 route round the coast & have T2 at the showground. Then do two laps of the Norwich half marathon route.

Job done.

And you wouldn't have to travel/get up at stupid o'clock, I'm guessing?

Maybe i'll put it to the Tri club, start a Norfolk Ironman.

The men from Norfolk have been called many a thing, but I doubt Iron??

IronTractorMan bit of a mouth full but it works

fyi - there's a pirate called Iron Tractor Boy.....

24/05/2012 at 16:50
Well as long as he doesn't grow into a Man then IronTractorMan ok

Chrissie Wellington grew up in Norfolk. She's done ok, lol.



Maybe she could be a patron for the Norfolk Ironman

As soon as we know the dates we'll decide - IMUK or Outlaw.

There's already an IronNurse

And you can count on me to come and laugh at you at whatever venue you chose

Well, the sight of a 6'3", 20 stone, bearded bloke in a tri suit will certainly be amusing.

May I vote for an inaugural IronJock?

Mid July

Freezing cold

Pouring rain

Swim in the Firth of Forth (which would be easy, because you could just glide across the crust of jobbies and used condoms)

112 mile uphill bike

26.2 mile run at an astonishing pace (which will be essential to outrun the midges)

Feed stations handing out deep-fried Mars bars and Buckfast

Anyone?

Gastank - I see you've enter Shas for this as well. Have you told her, or will I be getting the blame for that one too

And Nurse, you may have to work on your sales pitch a little
