My finger is hovering. I can’t find an IM late next year that gets me excited so might aim for this and do Lanza 2023.

I’m doing the 113 in June. May come down to spectate the Classic smackdown.

May head there for the weekend with the family, we should arrange a meet up on the Saturday.

Will double check diaries, but I’m keen to get involved, if only to prove to myself most of you are in fact real people!

Week after iMUK so I’m out.

Looks like a good opportunity to come and shout at you lot though!

A 1 week taper is a good amount for a half isn’t it?

Week after Tenby Long Course Weekend…very tempted though.

Can we officially start sandbagging then?

Do I officially need to start swimming at some point?

I should probably make an appearance to spectate/cajole/barrack, given my proximity.

I guess we should all try and get in the same wave?

Perhaps we should all wear an identifiable item to make it easy for the hordes of spectators it sounds like there will be for the TT massive? Perhaps tie in with a GWR record attempt, all wear a gimp mask and attempt the GWR for a 70.3 as a gimp (for @Jorgan )?

It wouldn’t be the first time I’ve done that for a tri. It’s the reason I’ll be 15 mins back by T1 and will probably never get that time back.

I could spank you with a paddle as you pass?

Wait until we’ve all entered, then one of us can drop Graeme a note to get us in the same wave and sequential numbers :+1:t3:

He was a TTer of yore and all round nice guy.

I have the Outlaw 2 weeks after this so is this awful or good timing. I was planning on doing Outlaw Holkham, which is the weekend before. That seems excellent timing, this might be a bit close :grimacing:

I am happy to take your advice on this as many of you are much more experienced on this.

ETA: See @mw22 I haven’t entered yet and I am already sandbagging :rofl:

You need to come and give me some physio advice whilst I hobble around :grinning:
