Based on the condition of his skin, I'm guessing about 1928?

Has he since got a job in the screen printing group within WTC?

Not surprising. Given the late notice course changes the first year, the short swims and whispers of running without the liscencing or world champion spots it all sounds like amatuer hour.

 

Do they drug test?

Insurance. 

If it's not, did anyone taking part ask to look at the insurance for the event?  I doubt it.

Stephen Foster had a great few days. I hope he enjoys his retirement. Makes Cairns Ironman look like a sprint race for me next month.

AP only wants events with big tents and award stages.

I am in awe of these people. It’s like what the average tv watching punter thinks about IM. 

Congrats to all. A different mindset and focus.

It is.

Tri Australia even put on "day"licenses for the event. There are TO's out on course (I know because I got chipped by one for having 2 support vehicles yesterday)

AP hates the attention. Just look at his car it's subtle, unobtrusive and definetly doesn't scream 'I'm a cock'

Steve missed out on the official world record for his age group because of the short swim.  Even if you add 16 minutes to his time to make up the extra distance, he still would have smashed the old record, but that doesn't count of course.  That would be a bit annoying.

Now if WTC owned this, he'd have his world record, and the world would be right again.

Correct. 

There's something very right about it from where I stand. 

 

Firstly, just the distances are ****ing ridiculous. And that ticks all the boxes for me! I thrive on the ridiculous, regardless of the situation. 

 

Secondly, it'd have to be like....what....? 140% mental? Surely?? LOL

It's only 135% if you train uphill in the rain and slam you're nuts in a drawer daily :lol::lol::lol:

I'm thinking if ironman is 70% mental why the hell do I spend 10hrs a week training for the race. I might go see a psychologist for 7 hours a week and get the same results.

This way I can stay in my warm comfy bed longer & sleep with my phone next to me.
