did my first ironman at Outlaw this year and the experience was made for me when in setting up my tent early on Friday I inadvertantly pitched in an area that would became irrisistable to the hoardes of arriving pirates over the next 36 hours! Many people came over to introduce themselves , chilli bean , seren mis, troggs , I could go on and on , and (after witnessing some ritual aound a very ornate box of chocolates!) we all went down  to registration on the Saturday morning.

Being a pirate would be great....

I was racing two years ago when Outlaw wasn't an official sailing and the support from the Pirate station was phenomenal. I'll be more than happy to go and help give something back next year, and I'm sure there will be some guys doing the race, too.

I tried to help early on in the debacle , but after a while it  was obvious that some instructions would have helped, and when the solution became apparent it was  a beautiful thing !

I don't think instructions are the Pirate way.....unless its 'Last orders at the Bar!!'

How did you race go anyway, you looked in good form when I saw you at the feedstation!!

Fancy Lanza next year.....??

Seren ,  I remember you , and your hat!   I read through a lot of the post outlaw stuff and laughed out loud for ages at the '' swim bike ambulance'  T-shirt competition. Other than that , I ran on the day in a Raven shirt named after Robert 'the Raven' Kraft who has run  8 miles a day every day for the last 37 years on South Beach Miami and who was a inspiration to me, he also swims about a quarter of a mile at the end of every run between the life guard towers.

Races , I would like to do Outlaw again and the Newby Hall half distance in Sept, and the 999 sprint tri at Holme pierre point again , and  of couse the Leeds Tri and the Leeds xpress tri, and maybe some othes...

Rafiki/Seren , did 14 51, about 2 hours quicker than I dreamed of , mostly because I don't run, 13 miles was the most I had ever done / will ever do ,if its not in a race! Run was 6 26, not that much quicker than the bike!

I am in for Outlaw next year, I could probably get my folks to help man the feed station as they normally volunteer every year.

cole , that's the one, cute dog.

so I guess I need to get a screen name and more importantly some kit! Did I read correctly that kit could be ordered in Sept for next Spring? Are there any more timlely ways to get kit?

Ian - yep you need to get a new name before one os chosen for you!

Because the kit is specially made for us and there is a min order for each item, orders only go in once or twice a year. It takes a while before its delivered etc etc. Pop across to the Kit thread, introduce yourself and place an order!

Hi Ian, and welcome! - I'm planning on doing the Newby Hall half too, if I survive my Oly next Saturday! Are you a northerner, then? 

Yes - you do have to be patient with kit, but sometimes there are folk willing to let you borrow theirs in the meantime ...

Britrisky, Hi, some friends at work are slowly following my jouney into triathlon and have done a few sprints and are planning bigger things. One of the encouraged me to do wimbleball last year but had to pull out due to injury on the bike leg. They all supported me at  outlaw which was my idea and now their idea is to do Newby hall in 2013, going along to sus it out this year. I don't want to tread on any toes so will probalby just recce it with them this year.

I am from Leeds, since university and Merseyside prior to that , with a couple of years abroad in Canada, couldn't find a canadian flag icon (computers not my thing)  The icon is perry the cop from cop versus firefighter on u tube

Hi Ian, think I walked over to registration with you and Mr Zuvai, it's all becoming bit of a blur! 

citizen 146    pirate

heh , quite possibly, I walked over with about 20 pirates, Mr Zuvai must have been one of them as I ''helped'' him with his tent and a few others camping nearby, everybody seemed very friendly and a lot of people introduced themselves and their name went out of my head in the pre outlaw nerves..

I have posted a kit request on the relevant thread and will go looking in the pirate bazaar to see if I can get anything for the rest of the season
