    Shawy Yeah it takes me so long to load up this website then trawl through the several TR24 forums, I end read moreup giving up some days!  Back to back runs are tough, but hopefully will give me the legs needed for the laps at TR24!  

    Hopefully my Triathlon training will begin after TR24, but not got one booked for this year so plenty of time before next May!

    Best of luck on your Ultra this week, just keep thinking of all them weird and wonderful accents to get your head around and you'll pass a couple of hours at least  :-)

    See you soon  eeeeeeekkkkk I'm so excited !!!

    stevemon Hi Shawy et al

    It seems we may have cross wires - 2 TR threads. I intend to arrive Sat am. So many accents I may have to bring Google translator.

    ranizia - contact Fiona Bugler - see thread elsewhere

    Training - back to back runs (Sat eve/Sun am) sounds good idea. I haven`t prepared specifically been training for triathlon and first ultra (this sunday).

    I see 10k runs, some in light, some in dark, most tired but fuelled up and a good laugh in between - sleep deprivation.

    stevemon prompted by Dan and his departure - welcome to Fiona.

    Looking at this thread there was lots of discussion prior to last years TR24.

    So here is my attempt to start new thread/continue from last year.

    I am really looking forward to meeting the team(s) members, camping, taking part in a 24 hr running event. I will bring a large tent, some cake (flapjack optional), possibly some family members, running bug t-shirt (unused), water?, cooker, veggy ingredients, a sense of humour, oh and a geordie accent. What will you bring ?

  14. respectthestupidity

    respectthestupidity I like the sound of that. It would help prevent solo runners boredom - wondering where the beer read morechair would be next, and who would be riding it. Although it wouldn't take you long to find the highest point. Stand on tip toes and you can reach it.

    Liewal, a monster of a hill in Norfolk????? Far too many years of 'shrooms I'd say.

    Adam Do both! Two of our crew did the same and they're just as sane now as when they started.

    You know, we could always enter TR24 2012 as a pair. Both set off with a chair, find the highest point and set up camp. Hand out Vitamin H to RTS every time he passes.

    Hey - I never said I'd actually do it (and I've got a lot of time to think about it).

    Daft B, I'm just going to drop this here for you. The weekend after TR24, same location.

    I'm now be musing about doing both. A 24 event 2 weekends in a row - I can't see anything going wrong there?

    Sleepless in the saddle 2012 - It didn't take long to find a quorum of bikers. Unsurprisingly it includes RTS but also Sam and finally Lee - currently recooperating from a broken collarbone, acquired on a mountain bike. He's not been part of a Stupidity event before but you'll gather he's of the right mental state.... 

    Thunder Run 2012 - On the assumption there's the hint of a chance that the Bug may possibly be putting teams forward I'll be throwing my cap into the ring for one of those. Obviously I'll be in tow of The Beer Chair.

    liewal You bet!

    Oh and I didn't just find any hill... I found an absolute monster of one, I felt like crawling up the darn thing! Oddly enough, it was more like a big dip in the landscape, very strange & in a dark forest...lol... maybe I should have avoided those 'shrooms!!!

    Should you guys ever venture a bit further south / central, I might just join you.

    CheekyOtter Will take you guys up on that.

    I need to get back out running locally so could no doubt combine the two.

    Beer is always fine as long as it is 'medicinal'

  19. CheekyOtter

    CheekyOtter Hey,

    Where did you go in Norfolk? If you found some hills you did extremely well.

    I would imagine you were cursing my name with every stride on the ascents!
