I have it on good authority that your mentor has sent you an FB message.

Anyone else trying to contact me via RW messages, my RW messaging is knackered, cant open them without getting an error.  I have sent messages to anyone ive been trying to help together with my email, im hoping my email is not now broken to.

Where's my IT geek when I need her?

A fair point tho seeing as the messaging service seems to be up the swannie, I do have one message in my inbox but I cant get passed the first page without an error message, the messages are out of date order and the notification is not working so I dont know who sent it either

Possibly Yums Meldy in relation to Stratty!

any mentors out there fancy helping me out. I have got a very busy year planned for 2014 and would love to have someone who can offer a little help and advice occasionally. 

I am already entered in Outlaw half and full and have a number of other races I am about to enter. I am sure most people will think I am mad for the number of races I am considering but it's not supposed to be easy as it's a challenge and will be raising money for some very worthwhile causes. 

If anyone thinks they can help please email me. My email is tattooedwelshman @ yahoo . Co . Uk but obviously without the spaces

Many thanks

I'd say a bit about yourself mate so you can find a mentor with the same madness we are all different and you want a mentor who can support you and not someone who would have a conpleately different outlook on life, races and if you should put cream or Jam on a scone first.

Hopefully I haven't left it too late but I would appreciate a mentor to help me complete Outlaw 2014. I'm based in the Lake District and have done a half IM and a couple of marathons. Intend on doing the Fink training plan and am hoping for 13 hours although telling my friends 14 so I don't look too silly if I am not up to it!

MTRI thanks for your message and I have just checked my email and can't find anything from you. Can you re-send? Many thanks.

HI I am based in the Forest of Dean, close to Monmouth and oftem work up the Usk valley round Crckhowell and Brecon. If any body would be interested in helping me with my training or even  just going out for some long rides and runs.

I have entered IM Wales for Macmillan and it is the first Tri I have ever entered.

Plannig to follow the Fink intermediate plan but will be getting in some miles over the winter to bring up my fitness level before the start of the 30 week plan.

I'm happy to be a mentor if anyone thinks I could be of use.  I have one IM distance race under my belt (Forestman 2011) and quite a few events at HIM, Olympic etc although for the last year or so I have not done a tri but focused on cycling and time trialling. Planning on going back to triathlon next year and hopefully entering at least one IM distance race.

I've made most of the common mistakes in the past so happy to tell someone how crap I was / am.

I live in Surrey and like cake.

Whearbouts in Surrey, Wheez? Which tri club are/were you a member of? There's a good few pirates about these parts. I'm Epsom, but we're all over the county.

Wheez, I am also in Surrey and am a cake fan. I'm considering Forestman for my second IM, also did the New Forest half last September, is it tough as nails?

Hi Kate. Well, the swim is flat 

I really liked the bike course. Not flat, but rolling in parts with some sections that are quite exposed so can be hard work if it's windy. Only one hill of note and it's very short. The run is something else. Pretty, but very tough, but then most runs at the end of an IM are tough. If I were to do it again and hopefully one day I will I would definitely  run on hills / trail more. I'm a member of Kingfisher Tri and live in the surburian utopia that is Chessington.
