Nice one Budgie, i'll see you at the lake on Wednesday, you still have to do those 4 laps

Sorry to jump on this thread right at the end.  I too am looking to 'pop my IM cherry' on Sunday.  I've just heard on the news they've called in the bomb squad as a grenade has been found at Blackrod - I think that's near T2!!  

Looking at all your training reports I'm sure you'll be fine, I'm getting nervous... I did go on the 'taster day' back in June,  did a lap of the bike course, have changed my rear cassette to save the legs up Sheepwash Hill.  Not looking forward to the third lap.

Is anyone doing the swim on Friday?  I'm going up rom Kent on Thursday evening to try and get a couple of decent nights sleep as I'm sure I won't sleep much on Saturday night.  Not sure whether I'm excited or just plain scared!!!

The very best of luck to all especially the first-timers.....CJ

Budgie well done and a great report. Good luck to everyone for Sunday I'll try to track you all but am on holiday so as bit difficult. 

Stop worrying you have put the training in and will be fine

Now is not the time to panic, stay calm, focus, think about how far you've come and what you will achieve on Sunday and you'll start smiling, you won't be able to help it.

See you all ( well those racing IMUK ) on Sunday for some well earned abuse

Greetings from the Bonkers thread !

SD I only realised in the last few days that it was IMUK that you were training for . I hope we all meet at some point over the weekend. I will be racing in Pirate colours, but I know a lot of others are in club/charity kit.

Have a great day!

I'll be riding in NEWT colours and running in Pirate colours.  Go pirates!  

Best of luck to everyone racing on Sunday.

How come when I look at the bib list I don't see any Sausages nor DimTims listed? hahaha (I know you guys on Facebook, just messing around.)

01/08/2013 at 18:32

I'll look out for everyone. Good luck all.  I'm wearing a Help for Heroes cycle top for the bike leg then changing into trianglia kit for the crawl 

knocked out a brief update prior to my trip up to Bolton in the morning

Good look all, I am down spectating in the morning  

See you all next year in it too
