is anyone getting dizzy spells?  i keep on getting dizzy, never had that before.  it's nothing too major but it's getting a bit annoying.  may have to break the habit of a lifetime and go to the doctor.

virus infection in the ear JD? that can give you dizzy spells but it could be something else. go see your GP

yeah it could be.  it's not blood pressure or blood sugar.  i'll book in.

if it was blood sugar you'd have sweats, dry mouth, and other symptoms not just dizziness......

I got it as well. I've put it on here for anyone who didn't get it. As a new pirate, I feel a bit of a fake answering her questions! I also need help to answer some of them, like how many pirates there are etc.

I am a Swiss Journalist writing for the newspaper „Neue Luzerner Zeitung“, but I also work as a free journalist for the „Fit for Life“ (, a Swiss Sportsmagazine. I’ve seen that you finished the Ironman Switzerland – with a yellow-blak shirt. I did some recherches and found out, that you’re a member of the „Pirate Ship of Fools“. So we decided to write a story about the sporty pirates and I would be very happy, if you could tell me something about you.

How became you a pirate?
Do you know other pirates?
When and where have you seen for the first time one of the pirates?
What did you have to do to get a pirate?
What is fascinating on the pirates?
Are there any pirate-rules?
Do you know how many members the pirates have?
How often do you run/swim/cycle (per week)?
What are your goals?
How many Ironmen have you already done?
Your fastest Ironman?
Your age? And you live in…?
Your Profession?       
Are there some moments, where it’s very hard to be a pirate?Thank’s so much for answering.
Best regards,Daniela Zeman

Think we might destroy her perception of 'sporty' with tales of beer drinking and try something new on race day approach to IM ...

Have RW ever put the Pirates in the magazine?

And 220 only did it accidentally once when Cheerful Dave and CRAB snuck into a big pic from Ballbuster a couple of years ago.
