    Whatever happened to Niseko

    He's actually a top bloke in person.

    Kona Slot Giveaway

    Channel Nine would have pushed for this one. Theu probably paid a motza to get it for her.

    I thought he was working as a speech writer for the Katter Party.

    50 Ironmans in 50 days Ashley Horner

    3 hours into the run, and not a single Instagram post or story on her bio. It can't be the "slow upload" like in Haiti? I'm starting to worry about her.

    One of the trips between venues in the latter part of the 50 days is a 9 hour drive. That's going to make it difficult to get through with 15-16 hr times. Maybe that's where she needs to put in 1 or 2 of the extra ones she's planning to get the 50?

    I wonder how many did show up only to find her a no-show. I didn't see any posts from disappointed twichers, which surprised me.

    First half of the bike completed in 3hr 6min, according to her video. That was 5hr 51min after she started. Add the 1:24 swim, and you have 1:21 of breaks not being accounted for in the time. I've got no issue with her taking breaks, however to claim a 12hr IM, I always figured that meant from start to finish. If her coach did the 180km, then I'm impressed. I don't think he'll make the run though.

    New IMWA swim course = chaos?

    He doesn't mean the mayhem at the first turn. They've turned it into a rolling start (which I didn't realise at first). The problem will be that the lead guys will be turning into their 2nd lap before the last groups of swimmers reach that point on their first lap. The quick swimmers will be doing their whole 2nd lap swimming around slow swimmers, and not just a couple of stragglers late on the course. Additionally with no exit between laps, there likely won't be timing on each lap, so it will become very difficult to identify who has & hasn't done 2 laps.

    And that in her home town. They must all love her there to show such support.

    Do you really think we will?

    The last couple seconds as the audio cuts out, she is saying what sounds like "we changed our start location". That one will go down well with any on twits that were going to be at the publicised location to ride with her.

    Someone on slowtwits has put up the drive time between venues as well. Looks like most are only 1 to 2 hours for the first week or so, but later on there are a few 5 & 6 hour drives that could hurt recovery badly.

    1:24 swim time claimed, although 2 hours after the start she's still eating, and yet to mount the bike. Gotta love a long T1. In yet another brilliant piece of organisational brilliance, her coach, who is going to ride with her is currently getting his bike fixed.

    Well, it's now 4am at Virginia Beach, 23 degrees with an expected 31. That's actually higher than it got to in Haiti (where she had to ride overnight to beat the heat), so one would expect here to be starting as early as possible. No sign of anything on Instagram. Her next event in Salisbury has a forecast temp of 34, followed by 35 in Delaware. This could be a short 50 days.

    Maybe they should update their athlete guide? Yes, it'll be an absolute fustercluck.
