Right, thanks for the heads-up on this one Kate.  I've just heard from the helpful race organisers and it looks like I should have the opportunity to sign up next months after I finish London Oly unscathed.  Weather permitting, I'll head over there on 11th to have a go at a couple of laps on the bike course.

Attempt 5 at getting my IM GI issues sorted.  This time out, liquid only.  That's going to be a killer (hopefully not literally) for a man with my appetite!

Unless something happens with C226, I reckon I might join you at the Immortal Kate as not too far from me.  It would mean me having to reign it in a bit at London Oly the weekend before, which will be annoying as I've rounded up a bunch of mates I'd like to beat.  Hmmm.

Bastion was also recommended to me by C226 organiser.  It appealed until I spotted that the pro who won it last year managed it in a time just under 10 hours.  I'm chasing a time.  The Bastion aint the course for it!  I might make a (un)reasoned plea to Outlaw (the only other weekend I have free this summer).  I don't hold out much hope but in my favour, I did take part in 2012 to receive, after half a day of flogging myself to death, one of the most measley finisher medals EVER.  Not sure that'll carry much weight in my search for a place in a sought after race.

13:17 is still a pretty impressive time given your self-confessed crapness at descending on a course which is 90% downhill!  It was also a pretty hot start to the run, from what I can remember.

IF by some miracle I am allowed to particpate, I suspect I would end up sleeping in the boot of my car.  If that's on the campsite, by a technicality, I guess the answer would be "yes" Mrs Digger.

Went out there for sub-11 (as I should have managed last year in both IMA and Barca) but was thwarted AGAIN by gut and despite being on target for a 10:15/30 finish I keeled over after 127 miles.  Took a 30 minute nap on the grass by the canal.  Got up, gave it a mile to work out if I could slog it out or DNF.  Staggered, got teary eyed, couldn't muster speech when I saw a mate and made the tough decision to give up.  Unfortunately GI issue can only be provoked by 8-9 hours of "going hard" over bike and run so trial an error is an expensive and infrequent occuring opportunity.  How about you?  At least you have a medal!

Did you e-mail the orgniser?  He's been very good in coming back to me.  Although it seems logistically he may have his hands tied, with the prospect of selling TWO more places, he may be more inclined to try and find a way?

I made a last minute attempt to get in to this event, having DNF'd at Austria on Sunday but I've missed the cut-off.  Gutted as the setup looks perfect to right my IM errors.  Best of luck to those who are out there racing.  Don't make the race reports too great, else I'll be doubly gutted not to have been able to join you.

DNF here. Pulled out after 128M. Annoying but 5 minutes of cathartic crying I'm over it. Will explain later.

I'm incredibly grateful to the Pirate support off & on course, with Swiss Bob walking off course to prod me to make sure I was still live. Genuinely amazingly helpful. Thank you.
