Should have done my run in my wetsuit this morning and got some practice in
It's a bit wet out there!
Did everyone get the same text I did today??
2nd June, the Outlaw Half at the same venue...half the distance, half the price, same quality event....entries open soon!!!
I didn't get a text nothiing on the website. Half the price makes it a bit pricey for a half, but then, I know the company put on really good events, it is close to home so makes it perfect for me (well, apart from all that swmming and biking)
That's strange...I wonder why they'd send messgaes out before putting it on the website.....
unless it's just for me!
...am I the chosen one? Hmmm, a whole event just for me, I have to say I'm flattered, but there must be some other way of ensuring I finally come in the top 1000 of a public race.
I'd better start training now if I'm not going to come in last.
Bugger, just found the 'half outlaw' thread....
apparently some other people have been told about it too.
Not just me then, sniff!
I got 2 texts, so am I doubly important??
Got the text but didn't notice the bit about price though.
BBT.are you sure you didn't enter the outlaw twice and pay twice and thats why you have 2 texts
I got 2 texts too! BBT and I are special

BBT and I are special
BBT and I are special
Indeed you are - very 'special'
I farted about and didn't get an entry fast enough, so I dropped them a grovel note in relation to the Waiting List. I'm #178. That suggests that I have 2 hopes....
I got one text, so i'm only half special
I've started training Well, essentially for VLM, but then i'll have to figure out how to manage the training inbetween that and the Outlaw marathon....but i'll worry about that later
slower- same here mate, sold out too fast and pay day didn't come round quick enough. Are you looking at other IM races?
I got two text as well, so another "special" person here
the enduroman half is £80 this year but they give you a very generous 10 hours to finish the race on the same day as the outlaw half
I never realised that it sold out that fast.
Mind you, I didn't actually get a terribly positive response when the wife reminded me that it clashed with our wedding anniversary. She thinks that I forgot the date....again.
Don't know if this has already been covered - but does anyone know what the bike route is for 2013? Is it the same as 2012 (which seemed to be 1 loop NE of Nottingham then 2 loops E of Nottingham from what I can make out). Any idea what the total climb is?
Rustman - Last year's route had about 1,500 feet of vertical, according to mapmyride. Year before about 1,900 feet.
Blisters - hopefully they'll gain agreement to increase the entrant numbers and release another batch. Might be worth getting your name on the waiting list.... or maybe just plan for a better wedding anniversary present?
