I’m a starter in the Leg Ends wave. 

No.14 in a row I think.

Perhaps the auto complete for the usernames of you and Ron need updating too...

Counted 109 in my AG - only because I'm up early this morning waiting for pool to open 😀

Just doing Noosa this year as my hubby hasn't done one there yet.😋

Doing the Family Team thing (swim) with my wife (bike) & her sister (run).

Pondering the usefulness of Slime in the Mrs tyres for the day, as she can't be fragged learning how to change a flat :rolleyes:  Have heard it has a tendency to block the valve? I used to run the Doc Blue in my tubbies & it was good stuff, but you can't buy it anymore.

I'm in.  Only 2 more and I'll be a Leg End. 😂  Everyone needs a goal.

Did it last year and really enjoyed the whole race. Loved the bike course. I'll be missing out this year. Mr BogFrog sags no. We'll both likely do it in 2019 though

Scratch that, you can get Doc Blue again from ChainReaction Cycles.  Ordered two bottles for my wifes tubes.  Fingers crossed :P

Are those big yellow bollards still on the bike course at the start of the climb?  Geez they'd have caused a bit of grief in the past wouldn't they.  Have to warn the Mrs to look out for them.

They take them down for race day don't they? I can't remember. But, they're not hard to miss.

Did I mention about my wife spearing off into the dirt on our ride on Sunday when she tried to have a drink from her bar-mounted aero bottle......

I've only done Noosa once (in 1997!) but apparently I'm doing the swim and run for a team this year

In Atlanta the week before the race for work.... awesome prep. Have been searching for pools, and places to run and not get shot...

That's where my sister lives 😊

Back for #34 :)

trying to keep the total budget under $100 for the weekend 🤔 

Currently, in legends wave > might try for a swap to open masters

(earlier start and less congestion - don't care about the prize $ (not likely to see it anyway))

I scored an invitation to the VIP trackside area for sat and sun!

Was going to travel solo (Halsa Lodge (YHA backpackers)), wonder If I can find a "guest".
