Mrs. Zuvai here............
Im up for volunteering/supporting/doing anything that could possibly need doing!
Thinking positively - doc says I'm to continue swimming and cycling, so if I do get operated on in early March, I won't be too far behind schedule, my IM plan was only meant to kick off at the beginning of April anyway. Plenty of time to pick up on running.........................I've often run marathons off a 16-week plan! Haven't been smoking something funny, honest. And lots of peeps end up doing run-walk anyway.
Always optimistic that's me. Or should it be "blinkered"?
That's rubbish UIW
At least with the new WTC rules on changing events you would be able to cancel and get a 2013 entry for almost no cost

I am absolutely positive you wont need it judging by your success this year........but if theres a bottle of wine at the top im sure I could be persuaded!
Just had a look at Kiln Park for the Long Course Weekend in June. Is that where most people stay when they're down there? Prices looked shocking, tbh;
£171 for a basic tent pitch for 4 nights£225 for my folks to hook up their caravan for the same duration
Does anybody have any alternative suggestions or better ideas? There's a mention of Hungerford Farm on the LCW website, but it looks a little way out of town. Thanks!
If abroad, arrive on Thursday, register and rebuild bike. Friday relax & pasta party etc. Saturday, rack bike and more relax. Sunday - race. Monday - Drink beer and relax. Tuesday, get sherpa to pack and leave for home. How much time do you have ??
I remember being a little shocked at the camping cost for 4 nights in late september at kiln park, for a tent. - ie £80-100 ish I think.....
however that was not the peak holiday time.....
and it was wet and windy.
and we left after 3 nights
but kiln park is close(ish) to the action - no having to drive into town is an advantage.
The pub is 'interesting'
the whole place is "interesting!"
any campsite that has a burger king on site is always going to have its characters! - imagine going there in the hight of the school holidays
i don't think anyone stayed the last night - irene saw to that!
^ you did choose the worst place to erect a tent!
i've not sorted my accommodation yet...
Ive gone for a caravan as well for next time ... Just in case the Americans send us the tail end of one of their hurricanes again.
