    Any benefit from strength work/lifting

    And Deek famously avoided stretching, while Kenny Bekele was worried that getting massages from a masseuse that worked with other athletes might mess with his mojo...

    I can’t wait for Kona (Wurf)

    There was a guy at my local park run last weekend in a “No meat athlete” podcast shirt - I beat him...

    UTA acquired by Ironman

    Surely the CEO wouldn’t have been passing off a deliberate policy under the guise of a systems issue when I enquired about a transfer...

    UTA acquired by Ironman

    Does this mean IM Asia-Pac will have acquired sufficiently advanced systems to handle entry transfers over a 12 month period?

    Don’t WTC know they should be offering a LCHF alternative (or at very least a gluten free one)?

    Kona spot. No need to qualify

    Maybe WTC can use some of the money raised to upgrade their entry processing system to something that matches what NX Sports have?

    Kona spot. No need to qualify

    With an estimated net worth of ~$95m, if you struck up a rapport with Elle over dinner I reckon she could sort a Kona spot for you no worries...

    NX sports are awesome.

    So the translation of the response from the IM Asia Pac CEO is something along the lines of “these aren’t the droids you’re looking for”???

    NX sports are awesome.

    To quote why IM Asia Pac wouldn’t offer me a roll-over: “I know transferring 12 months is a desire of many but this does create tax, audit and an administrative nightmare, therefore the calendar year is needed. With over 50,000 managed entries, to have a credit system in place at this stage is just not controllable” Although other posters don’t seem to have encountered the same difficulty with transfers from the same organisation...
