  1. Kona race day thread

    Ive just finished reading the 11 pages. Nice work everyone. I got to watch the last 10km of the Male Pro Race. what an awesome display of courage from Sanders. Lange was just fabulous in the parts I saw of him. Sanders looks like a wheelchair for a few days will be in order. I was out all day and what a day of tracking people on the phone. I had no drop outs on the tracker all day.. Im truely amazed. I hear the Red Bull app is awesome and has a 9 hour highlights package . Thats tomorrows job. It was so nice to see a few trannies go out there and have a great day living dreams or achieving what they trained so hard for. MountainBoy did a great time of 10:11 with a 3:47 marathon. Mrs IP looks like she was having a blast out there from the pics ive seen. Keeping a friend company. TGL. bloody hell mate if you had only picked up the pace to sub 3;20/km for the last 41 km you would have had a new PB. I had faith in you all the way to get to the end and fulfill the dream so many of us have. I wish Id been there to talk shit for the whole 42 km but if that was the case we probably wouldnt have got to the end. Well done mate. Ticked that box well and truely. A few x club mates also raced today and im almost inspired to get off my fat arse and go for a run tomorrow.

  3. RIP - Nick Munting

    I remember meeting Nick at my first Half Ironman in Canberra in 2009. At the race brief Nick really made sure that us virgins knew what we had to do on the day and after the brief he said he would stick around and chat to us newbies if we had any questions. He took the time to reassure us and make us feel welcome and part of the family. I met him a few times later at other races and he always seemed to be smiling and happy to just chin wag while having a million things going on in the background. First impressions last, Nick gave me a very good impression of Ironman and has stuck with me since. RIP

  14. Relationship Advice

    Im sure once she see's me adorning such classy clothing she will never want to run away. Im in my mid 30's (39) and she is in her late 30's (35). 39 and 35. Thanks for the great responses guys. It'll be interesting to hear from the ladies in the group to get a woman's perspective.
  15. Relationship Advice

    After separation from the wife and getting life and kids stable I've now found myself a really nice woman that seems to be a keeper. I have 2 kids aged 12 and 10 and she has none. She is 35, sane and really stable in life. When I first met her I asked where she could see herself in 5 years. She said blah blah a couple of kids blah blah. At this early stage of the relationship I thought that having more kids would be ok. A bit of time has past since that first conversation and I have now decided that I don't want to go back to nappies and being a taxi for kids for another 10 or so years. It was a hard decision for me to make as I thought to be a complete family again then a new partner would either have her own kids or we would have some together. I knew I had to tell her my feelings and did this in a very difficult conversation. I effectively told her i was walking away as i didn't/don't want to be that guy from stopping her from having kids. The unconditional love that kids bring is greater that the love I can give her. She then went on to say she was willing to not have kids to be with me. She wanted a month or so to think about it while she got to know me some more. The relationship has been going really well and we havent spoken about the kids thing since that day. I really like this woman a lot and would like to be with her but the real question I have to try and answer is "Can I be that person to prevent her from having children?" Even if she decides that she is willing to be with me and not have her own children, will I ever feel guilt free? Am i being a prick? Shall I walk away effectively taking that choice away from her? Any advice would be greatly appreciated from the Tranny collective.
