Let the fun begin - he said. I've just signed up, and paid good money, to do a marathon (Stratford upon Avon) at the end of April next year! If I'm going to do all of Henley next year I thought I'd better make sure I can do the runnin' bit.

That's my winter mostly sorted then!

Fraggle - did the guys from the Tri shop manage to lend you a decent wetsuit for the race?

Frags - Cake may be right - I am carrying my "winter wetsuit" a little early so it protected me from the cold.

Still delighted to report no stomach bugs etc...was expecting to be moving from both ends by now but glad to report nowt!

Challenge have announced that next years event is on 8th September.  It clashes with our biggest event of the year and so for that reason, I'm out.

Brave of CH to take on the Bachuus head-on!

 

Shame they clash

Oh no, now I will need to make a decision, Bacchus or Henley Half. Simple really, but I will need to train this time, then I could cycle to and from Bacchus.

I'm going off the idea of Henley, think IMW is starting to look better for me.

I keep trying to get excited about Challenge Henley. And every time I look at it, I end up thinking "there must be a more exciting event" . Maybe I'll look again in a few days and it'll have grown on me.

FF - based on recent experience of IMW.... it has the Wow Factor. Bloody horrible but perversely enjoyable, like being waxed, cycling in hail or eating a filthy hot curry.

Looks like Vichy might be the best option after all. Steady Bacchus wouldn't be the same without you :0)

Saves me having to decide between the full and half I suppose

Not going to be too difficult to win a prize at the awards ceremony afterwards if this is the Championship race

Hmmm .. what options do we have instead ??

I would add a disclaimer that moving to Outlaw would be unfair now that entries are closed ....

26/09/2012 at 20:47

Is Vichy an option do we think?

I would think that the chances of Vichy being reduced were quite high?


Henley was chosen partly for ease of cost and travel, Vichy I think would be quite prohibitive?

That's the royal WE, I should clarify. I ain't IMing next year.
