The 2014 Outlaw feedstation/supporters thread

Posted: Today at 20:00

It's a shame that I didn't get to experience the Pirate feed station but from what I've seen on facebook, and from all I've heard, you do an awesome job

I was a little concerned about the non-bra wearing!!  Did make me chuckle though

Those 'I'm just going to do a couple of miles.  Oops turned out to be longer' runs are great aren't they?!  I'm all for making hay while the sun shines!!

Whilst breaking up too many runs isn't ideal for stamina purposes, if that is the only way you're going to get the miles in then it's better than just binning training for that day.  I'd still try and get that long run in and, if needed, break some of the shorter runs down.  At the end of the day though you need miles in the bag you do need to be able to stay on your feet for 26.2 miles.

The loud music, interspersed with banging portaloo doors, made me glad I'd remembered my ear plugs!! Albeit that they didn't do a great job of blocking all the noise

The marathon that was so much more!

Having done 150+ marathons it gets harder to find something a little different but I’ve made a real effort this year to start doing that – first marathons in the US, several new European marathons, my first 24 hour race and taking the opportunity to be part of a team plus getting as close as I’m likely to do to doing a tri! 

The whole Outlaw experience has been amazing – right from the point when we entered through to the weekend itself.  My last experience of being involved in a triathlon was being Mouse’s Sherpa at IMDE back in 2010 but even that didn’t really prepare me for the sensory overload I felt on Saturday when I first hit the lake.  So many people, so many different elements, so much to see/do/remember!  I can’t remember the last time I was so nervous about a single marathon!

Yesterday morning it was over to the lake with everyone to see Mrs SA and everyone else off on the swim.  Then it was bacon buttie and a cuppa time before dropping Pudge down at transition and off to the hill to watch the swimmers come in and see the Pirates off on the bike.  After that it was back to camp for the very odd experience of finding things to do while waiting to go back to transition.  Not knowing when to start preparing to run was as hard as I expected and somehow not something I want to do too often! 

As expected, Pudge bossed the bike and time soon came for me to head out on the run.  Now I have to say that I didn’t hugely enjoy the run – it was too hot for me and I didn’t overly like the course.  That said, I still loved it.  Seeing the other Pirates out and about on the route and the ever growing Pirate support squad at the finish really lifted the spirits and everything that’s been said about the reaction that Pirate kit gets from supporters proved true.  The enthusiasm to reply in true Pirate fashion as the wheels began to fall off certainly waned but I tried my best!!  I wish I’d been able to hold it together a bit more for Team TBC and get a better time but it wasn’t to be.  Finishing with my team-mates though was really very special and huge fun!

After that came the madness that is supporting at the finish line as the evening wears on.  I remember it from the two IMs I was at but this was so much more full on – or maybe that was just the gin beginning to kick in!

 All in all a really wonderful weekend.  It was great to catch up with old friends as well as make new ones.

See you all next year  – if not before

I have no idea why an old post of mine has re-appeared!  I'm really not going totally mad - well not yet.

I hope the weather's kinder than it is here right now. Drenched and distinctly ticked off right now!

Just home after a really great weekend.

Thanks to everyone for making it such a fun time .  Been far too long since I've been to a Pirate event - won't leave it so long next time.  If you'll have me that is

Wasn't my best run of the year (though better than some of my recent performances!) but I never do well in the heat and tbh feared it would be a lot slower than it was.
