2.4miles on the bike for me. It is raining stair rods anf freezing Need to man up a bit and add a few warmer and waterproof clothes to my wardrobe. Now going shopping I seriously hope its not raining on July 7th next year.
Watched TV coverage yesterday with my OH. Now he's "proper" worried
SS - it rained last year on July 1st. For some like me, it was on the bike, and made the last 20 or so miles a nightmare. Others complained of a wet run, though the sun was shining later on.
Twas a might chilly yesterday morning with a base layer, summer jersey and arm warmers. It did warm up a bit later on, but lesson learnt for next weekend. Get a good warm jacket and mudguards. That way at least your behind remains warm and dry.
Is this true that there's a half on the 2nd June?
That's the rumour. Watch it sell out in 24 hrs!
I shall be very temoted, even though it's a bit close to the real thing. I may see if the OH is interested
It could be her surprise Christmas present
when will we hear for sure? I don't want to miss out but I also don't have much cash having just forked out for the real deal!!!
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
Iron Pingu wrote (see)
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
