Can I just confirm ... as a tent camper I just rock up.

Do I have to pay? How much? Do I park with my tent?

Can I cry now? Is there a padded cell for me to gentle rock in and whimper "help I can't do this"?

I'm aiming for a 11pm finish will someone catch me as I cross the line as I suspect I may make it to the line and then my legs may just give up on me.

EP, have you given some thought to how youe can prepare a positive mental approach to the race, how will you deal with things when they innevitably go wrong on race day.  What mental strength will you draw on when the going gets tough and you want to stop.

You need to be ready for this, worrying, crying isnt a sign of weakness but you have to be in a positive frame of mind, your head needs to be as strong as your body.

I was going to be coming over to support on Sunday but alas I cant support because........I'm now part of team 55! I got asked tonight if I could step in due to a last minute injury. I'm on the bike leg, with no training it's gonna be a long day

EP if you are a back marker I can vouch the pirate crowd at the finish just gets bigger and louder and yes the finish crew are very experienced in dealing with people on their last legs they even have beds in the aid tent if you need it

What Barley said is very important get positive think of things or people that will inspire you to push on when inevitably it gets tough and when things go wrong my mantra is just keep moving forwards and my late mum is my inspiration she was such a fighter when the chips were down

Seren has a good approach she dedicates each mile of the run to a friend and when she needs to draw strength or distract herself spends time thinking of happy memories connected with that person.

Not been following for ages... Sorry, hope all are well. Wanted to wish you all a fantastic weekend; hope the conditions are everything you need them to be.

Very best of luck Sian (Boundary Park

As last Pirate home with about 10 minutes to spare at Outlaw last year I can only say that the finish chute welcome was absolutely fantastic and the most memorable and enjoyable part of a very long day.

EP - the end process takes care of itself. You will be tired but it isn't far, your brain will be wired and alive. In fact you will have trouble getting to sleep after the race.

Sure you won't want to run much further but you will be able to plod on under your own steam. Plus we will all see you shuffle the few yeards back. If you need help with your kit you will get it.

At IM regensburg we all had to shuffle the 2 miles back to the hotel, not just a few hundred yards.

Be brave.

If you see me sprinting at any time .that mile I'm thinking of Barley

Hey EP, can I be your inspiration for miles 12-13 on the run... justthink of a braw scotsman striding through the heather with his faithful haggis hound at his side, and there in the distance is the wee timorous beastie, run EP, chase that haggis, its scented us and its away, run EP, run....

Does that help or are you just a little frightened now?

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
