errrm -  I only had one pee during IMW and that was as I came out of T2.  perhaps I got my hydration wrong....

Wasn't it Candy who had peed on the bike forgetting that his bento box was attached to the seat stem rather than handlebar stem. Seem to remember he only noticed once he'd tried a couple of slices of slightly bleached maltloaf.

I'm sure someone from the Pirate ensemble peed in transition once, sadly on a dry day before the swim so rather obvious I guess...

I think the esteemed pirate king noticed his error before eating any of the affected items.

One of the highlights from JD's IMDE report from 2006 was him successfully describing a (possibly first time) T1 'on the move' pee to the soundtrack of 'what have you done today to make you feel proud'.

I know Candy peed in his wetsuit in one of his first Ironman races.

Except he didnt wait until he was in the water - he was on a bone dry concrete slipway. Nice flow of pee running past his fellow athletes feet.

Oops! Thought Debbo had done so too thinking about it, what do I know...?

I remember a bloke at Cheter Oly last year wetting his suit during the safety briefing on the pavement near the bandstand. Just stood there, listening politely, with his arms folded, while a pool of his piss accumulated around his feet and spread. Classy.

you don't need to stand close to me then pre-race - that's usual for me as well.  often more than once.....

On the LCW earlier this month I was desperate for a wee on the bike course, but as it wasn't officially a race, and as I was surrounded my a lot of cyclists on a clear bright day I didn't fancy doing it on the go.

Anywhoo there just was no where to go. I kept hoping for a discreet gap in the hedge to appear and for miles there was nothing. Finally I came to a gate in the hedge and decided that would have to do. It was set back from the road a little but there really was nowhere private. I didn't fancy climbing over the gate with my speed-plays on. There were loads of cyclists passing and I was seriously regretting purchasing bib shorts. Every Time I was set to go another peloton would come up the hill. 

So in the end I went to the roadside and shouted down the hill at the top of my voice, 'Eyes *that* way please'. Much laughter  followed and most of them did look the other way.
When you've gotta go, you gotta go!
