Was up at Whistler the other day and have some friends landing tomorrow to go do the race at the end of th month which got me thinking,
It is is a beautiful part of the world but a full on nut job place to do an Ironman at first glance. I then had a look at the course profiles and started to think, sure it's high to begin with and there is plenty of climbing but also some really long downhills. Obviously the weather could be anything as well.
so what are people's thoughts on doing an M dot in the Whistler type environment. I'm not comparing it to Norseman or the like but it also is in no way a busso or Cairns and at the end of the day you get a medal, same same but different.
So thoughts on doing one somewhere here like Whistler ? Is it worth the effort ? Is the effort actually that much when you look at the downhills ?
Thoughts ? Personally I think it's nuts.
