I think there are showers and food at the finish line.so you can then get sorted

The spread of food last year was rather good, I thought. 

HPP has showers up the horrid steps and turn left, you need a code to get into the changing rooms. It's worth trying to find out what the code is from reception the day before. You'll prob walk past the changing rooms going to the briefing.

awesome!

So far I have
Dad - kidney removed for cancer Jan 2012, Jan 2013 told he had prostate cancer, Just finished radiotherapy
Grandma - died of cancer
Grandad - died alone in hospital I was the last family member to see him (both these grandparents were my biggest fans as a kid and traveled miles with me doing horse shows.)
Mum - open heart surgery

Probably with thinking about grandparents is it brings tears to my eyes - I never really cried when they died as I knew they were both in a lot of pain and it felt selfish when I knew they were better off out of pain.

So in that case

Cake at the end of my HIM (and also him doing airoplanes on the run)
The marshal at the end of my HIM making me run the last 1/2m for ice-cream (it worked!)

I'll keep thinking

@EP, A few events ago, I was thinking about a friend who died of cancer and I wound up greetin so much that I had to stop and get my breathing under control. Great photo finish of pinched swollen and red face with snot running down my nose. My mate would have thought that was hilarious! I now think of happy memories, fun and inspirational things. I was reading a book on visualisation techniques that suggests you visualise yourself going through the chute at the finish, strong and happy, with all of your friends and family cheering and happy as they watch you finish. Any negative thoughts that creep in your head, just wipe them out like on a blackboards, and replace them with the winning thoughts of finishing

So silly question. Where do we put change of clothes, shampoo etc Guess this makes a change to worrying about the race itself

The steering headset from my bike always gives me the little bit of extra motivation when I'm feeling at a low

You should get three bags at registration. The first one you put your bike kit in, the second one, you put your run kit in, the third one you put your gear that you  take off before the swim and anything you will need at the end.

Should be there by 1:00 and I've bought a new camping chair, so I can sit down, drink beer and supervise you putting your tent up

And in case anyone else missed the location of Pirate HQ.......

did someone say that you drive onto campsite, park car and pitch tent next to car?

that means I can keep my bike in the car if needed.

so nervous now, but cant wait to experience my first pirate outing and meet you all.
