I dont know Seren?   That seems a bit bizarre but then again they are in competition!

So I think some of the newbies could pop their cherry in glamourous Bolton then, officially call themselves pirates, get tattooed, have a bit of a rest and still be able to officially participate in Henley if any of us think we're hard enough....

40th & getting hitched 6th July (venue/registrar permitting), 21st July IM Bolton, Challenge Henley 15th Sept

Got the honeymoon to taper then... exciting 2013

Same weekend as IMWales this year, so unlikely to change next year.

Just had a meeting of minds ....

PSOF Championships (UK) will be Challenge Henley 2013

with the Extraordinary PSOF Championships (international) being IM Lanza 2013

Will get the thread title changed and there is no specific rush to enter Henley so once this years race is over and done with we can negotitate our discount!

I told you she'd choose. Meeting of minds my arse.

Would love to do IM Lanza but I got 'The Look' when I suggested it. Not in kids holidays, bloody long way to go (although in reality little extra travel time compared to Southern Germany), and cost. Not sure the risk/reward balance is there.

Vichy I would get away with and Henley would be easy peasy for permission. Although it is likely to give me an issue with a 50 miler I do in September but hey ho can't do everything. Although the European IM theme is appealing.

Glad Meldy has got it all sorted.

Personally id like to see us get back to a full Ironman in 2014 if we're doing UK/non Ironman for the pirate champs in 2013.

Sweden would be top of my list for 2014 as its the only European Ironman the pirate ship hasnt sailed to yet.

Sweden sounds good for 2014 and yay for Henley next year.

Barley - stop micromanaging your life.  You'll need a spreadsheet soon to keep up with it all.

Mmm Challenge Henley looks very tempting, I'm also looking at a trip to Roth next although Sweden is also tempting. Lanza will never happen for me!

I do have to say that I like the look of Sweden, the swim looks different, the bike course looks great, the run looks very complicated. Beer is very expensive in Sweden

Seren i distinctly remember you saying at Bala in 2010 that you were never doing an IM again, and look where that got you

One thing you can say about Ironman Sweden, the swim would definitely be Baltic!!

I'm thinking about doing Sweden next year.  When I say 'thinking' what I really mean is I'm really excited/scared by the challenge but can't turn down that desire to challenge myself, so I will be doing Sweden next year. . . . . . I'm just not quite ready to accept it yet. . . . . . or tell my wife.

one thing's for sure - Sweden would be a PB course for many - it's as flat as a pancake - rises to 50m above sea level at most!!!

the other thing's for sure - it won't be cheap when you're there!!
