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

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!!

I paid £11 for a pint of guinness last Jan in Stockholm, and all the taxis have chip & pin machines cos the fares are so expensive....

Sweden interests me, I missed the discusion on next year's Lanza, is it full?

<Waves at Mon>

Lanza 2013 is the nominated international IM, it's only just opened and there's a separate thread for it.

I'm not participating in IM in 2013 (think I said that for 2012 as well though!),   but may well pop along to Henley and support if there's a pirate ship sailing down the Thames,  I didn't think it was as difficult a course as people make out though,  there is some climbing involved but it's only really 2 hills per lap and there are plenty of quick sections for the bike.   I think the run was reasonably doable as well,  although to be fair I can't remember a big chunk of it having messed up on my nutrtition.

2014 both IM Sweden (despite the price of the ale) and Vichy look good to me,  (particularly as my in-laws are moving to France later in the year!)

Cake, follow the Thames West from London, it's about 30 miles out from central London.

Henley-on-Thames, my dear old thing. Home to rowing regattas, business schools and the poshest picnics in the land. Nice spot.

And Jaffa... you did say that about 2012. I distinctly remember it, so well done on dusting off your swimming goggles after all, mate.
