And I know a Pirate who can twirl a set of tassles with great flair and style.  And they are not female!

struggling with a major CBA problem, the issue being that IM isn't a challenge as such and knowing I don't have the time to devote to getting a speedy time means I drop into a get-you-round mentality which brings me back to the lack of challenge issue 

Im often in the same position, will have worked 70-80 hours last week and thats kyboshed any decent training (working tomorrow to).

Its not about the challenge so much but the taking part, race atmosphere, being with friends etc.  Some of the video's I was watching last night were showing the last finishers, you just cant beat that electricity.

Incidentally, does anyone know which IM this is?

Funny you should mention it, I was watching this last night, some great drone footage of arrow straight road to Fire Mountain and the twisty road up Mirador.

I remember the first time I was entered in 2007, meticulous preparation included downloading and riding the bike course my tacx imagic.  Rode the first 4-5 miles and sussed that it genuinely was a myth that there were hills in Lanza.

Tan Man, welcome. 

Quite a lot of pirates racing again this year, Lanza being such an iconic event many of us have been a few times.  Can help with advice about the course, build up etc.

There will be lots of pirates in various accoms near transition in PDC.
