The benefits of a lottery are huge for the people that dream, but surely $50 is a bit steep, why not make it $5 and a additional $15 to a nominated charity. Surely that would create more enteries and greater revenue overall see conversation

It has to be my Outlaw t-shirt, well Outlaw Training to be precise, it's grey, tell's total numpties what I want to achieve, and fits perfectly, (even with the seasonal gains). More over the grey t-shirt with white and orange writing and logo stand out. I am now contemplating buying another, so I don't have to wear anything else... (is this wrong?) see conversation

Ok, so I have man flu, chest infection, general feeling crappy.  7 days so far and not trained a single day, and am hating it.  My little demon on my shoulder is screaming to get better, or hit the turbo or sweat it out.  But I resist.  Don't think my lungs can take it.  So what's the best thing to do, wait until I recover fully, or bite the bullet and swallow that dirty Man Up Pill?

Sketty you could always politely advise her, that its either she accepts the bike and lets put it mildly, budgie smuggling lycra, and becomes in harmony with your desires to escape to the great open road, or you may have to find a more optimal life component to co-exist with.  Just make sure their is about a living rooms length between you when you do

That's what dedication to your dream gives you.  I do think though that our women elite are going to get stronger after though.  Rachel and Jodie definitely have a point to prove.  Good luck to all of them though.

As a tri virgin last this year, it was easy to source training plans on the Web, and the most expensive thing I bought was a tri-suit at ??30. The golden rule has to be, find a plan to suit your lifestyle, you will need to change a few things like less beer maybe. But to start with don't let it consume your life. Before you race I would advise a dry run from a local pool, there is nothing like convincing yourself you can do a sprint distance Triathlon in calmer surrounds. Besides which it gives you a bench mark, and ideas of where you can improve.
To this day I haven't joined a club, because of expense, my monthly pool membership is enough. However you will find plenty of help through websiteso and forums like 220 full of sound advice. You will even meet fellow triathletes in the pool.
If you have a weakness train at it, until you get better and better. I couldn't do 400m in under 18min, this time last year, without having a near death experience. Now I am doing 1km in 18mins, and then doing another km afterwards with ease. All I did was practise, train, learn, tweek and push myself.
If you can do it, try each discipline three times a week to start with, and then test yourself regularly.
At the end of the day you have done the hardest bit, deciding to do a triathlon. The rest will be down to you and how much effort you put in. see conversation

Couldn't have put the top ten any better if I tried. Gomez is phenomenal, a master in a class that is hard to beat. So now as this year is almost over what does next year have in store for all of them. (now where did I put my crystal ball?) see conversation
