I'm aiming for IM in 2014, so still 2 years away, but this thread is a brilliant confidence booster. I haven't drowned yet and I can run (slowly), but I fell off my bike last year and am being a big jessie about getting back in the saddle. Maybe I need a kick up the backside as much as a confidence boost.

Boing for Newbies who dont know they want to do an Ironman in 2014 yet

Also for those completing their first in 2013 to add their start point if they want.

I was planning on not looking to enter a "big" event until after I have completed the London Marathon in April. This thread is making me think a bit harder........

In May 2012 I had been running for a year and a half, and had just run my first marathon in 4;18, I didn't do any serious cycling to speak of, although had completed the Transpennine Trail over 5 days a couple years earlier, and could swim 2 lengths front crawl.

Hmmm,  Interesting


Can't swim,  legs sink in the water (injury to back) read some good reviews on wetsuits that help with buoyancy?

Just started cycling, bought a Road bike last week upto 20 miles at just under 15 mph. enjoying the cycling. 

Running - O.K several marathons times range from 3:30 - 4:00, btw Snowdon time faster than London.

Started to look at two years time maybe next year?

Oh and well done to you all
