So just to confirm Peter and Bored@ are in?  For the full distance.

No. I only race short, easy draftfest races. Busso is the worlds hardest course.

I will also be retiring after Ironman Maryland. Maryland will be my 20th IM & I'm just looking forward to competing  with no pressure & saying goodbye to the sport.

You should know better Peter. There is only one Ironman distance*...

 

*+- 10 per cent due to WTC courses, sometimes with or without a swim.

So you took the soft option. 

My WOD is on at 10am today in the box. I'm just drinking a bulletproof coffee before I get ready to leave.

Basically.  But busso is a draft fest and we won't be swimming so the focus just needs to be on the run so.....I should dominate.

I've done the flyer drop notifying the local community of who you are and yes the beard is real etc. The local shopping centre wants a Saturday lunch time meet and greet. Thoughts?

Subject to any of the best IM AG coaches (qld or online) pointing the flaw in my understanding, I put Lionel Sanders’ Kona result last year down to his mo.

You didn't want it bad enough. If you were mentally tough & got up at 3am you would have won your age group.
