Last year I was lucky enough to do the DIY HIM in preparation for Outlaw. This year my VLM club place takes precedence (sorry, SA) - I loved that last year, partly for getting to meet some lovely pirates, and partly to tick a box on the Fink plan.
I've been looking at HIM events as preparation for Outlaw 2014, and haven't been inspired - either too late, too far away (Bala, Marshman, Enduroman), or they haven't been given much of a thumbs up ...
Would a DIY of my own do the trick - swim, bike, run on the same day? - do I really need to spend all that money to practice race day 'things'?
