Thanks for warm welcome - great to know there's another person who will end the race older than they started it! And thank you M..eldy. If I didn't see your post I could have lurked indecisively. IE this could all be your doing!

I started "training" yesterday having loafed around interspersed with random running events like a headless chicken. I managed to hurt my knee by killing 10 mins on an exercise bike waiting for the swimming pool to open! No one warned me exercise bikes can be dangerous if you don't adjust the seats! Nothing an easter egg can't cure!

Having just had a sneaky peek at IM Melbourne 2013, and learned that it sold out in just 4 minutes, how fast do you reckon you'll need to be on the trigger to enter this one?

Not saying that I'm going.... or even that i want to go . But I believe that Lanza's a nice place for a family holiday.

I wouldnt expect Lanza to sell out in a few minutes, it could be hours, even days?  maybe even a couple of weeks? but if you certaintly then id suggest entering the morning the race entries open.  I wouldnt fancy the risk of waiting more than a few days.

Until a few years ago it didnt sell out, its now filling quicker every year, I think last years race filled in a couple of weeks?

Porto Del Carmen (race start and fininh), depending on numbers maybe organise outselves between some villas/hotel?

The book of face says 2012 sold out by end of July, but as Barlos says it gets quicker year on year.

Orca, I'm thinking Puerto del Carmen - there seems to be a very wide range of accomodation

I'm off to Puerto del Carmen on Monday for a week I got an apartment via Owner's Direct. I'll report back on what it is like, only 200 quid for a week.

Lee - how big is the apartment (ie how many could comfortably share)? I think there will be plenty of accommodation but it could almost be worth booking that before entries open to get the best choice and deals.

Having said that, I am rather enjoying my year off and am sorely tempted to postpone my glorious return to triathlon for another year so I can get various injuries sorted out and do some training before I get there.....

I'm going next year but as a supporter only. I'm taking a year off the long stuff next year. Unless I end up moving to Arizona with work which is a possibility at the moment. Would be great if there was a gang of us all in the same apartments.

Are you going to discuss with your family????

I can think of better places for a family holiday. Mind you, somehow you have convinced me to have 2 'holidays' in Tenby this year
