I'm playing at the Outlaw half next year and then Ironman UK.

3rd at a half marathon today in 1:21:44. Sub 80 next year I hope!

Ironman Uk 2015 who's in?

Not necessarily, but I want to stay at the finish line and watch everybody come in until the end...

The thought of having to go and shower, get in the car and drive to collect my wet swim kit and bike, load them in the car and then drive back doesnt really appeal compared to shouting at others

Perfect... only problem is getting bike back from T2... Do they transport your swim stuff from T1 to T2 I presume?

Any one know if you are able to pick your bike up on the Monday? Last year's info suggests T2 is only open until midnight to collect the bike... which is no good for those people finishing after ~15 hours

Travelodge riverside hotel for me. Would rather be at the race finish for the midnight finishers

Well raced all those that finished, and commiserations to those that didn't for whatever reason. Felt particularly sorry for GB (I'm guessing? who I saw walking pretty early on the bike, but was OK when I asked on the way past).

That was me... Don't worry I had an enjoyable day still. Long standing puncture problem showed it's ugly head again as I got my second puncture after just 33km. Decided to then just have a nice jog back to transition... though 6km with barefeet pushing my bike has left my calves in a bit of a state ever since. Got a few funny looks and told a few people I was just practicnig my transitions

Amazing to see so many people stopping/slowing down to offer inner tubes to a stranger.

Was a bit gutting as I wanted to go for a decent time and position. ~34m for the swim and was holding over 34kph for the bike so believed I was on for a 4:35 total for the race. Wasn't my A, or even B race though, hence only taking 1 inner tube. Ho hum...

Decided to hang around the feedstation for a while before moving on to the run course to shout at a few club friends. Sorry I had to dash off quite early and didnt meet many of you.
