If you've done a 13 hour Ironman tell me why.

Recommended Posts

Huh, the same year I probably won't be doing one!

This thread makes me want to do an IM so badly, just so I can respond to the question with "why not?"

I'll respond for you Goughy…   Why not?

I've gone over 13 hours, and I've also gone under 10 hours & done Kona etc.

I thought going over 13 was better!

That is all  :thumbsup:.

Hello Mrs Turtle, yes it's been a while, I hope everyone's well.  I've got a couple of mates racing in Kona and thought I'd log on to see how they were travelling.  You know that I can't resist a good 13 Hour IM thread!  :boxed:

Might take me a while to catch up on things...  Don't suppose you want to give me the one minute version?

Every body played nice and we all got along without controversy. Not a bad word was said about anyone. Not even those unfortunate enough to accidentally break a rule. 

The End.

When did they extend the cutoff to 13 hours ?

If you ever went to Kona youd know they give you 17.

I’ve been to Kona twice and came well inside the cutoff every time

Is there a cut-off? I was drunk by then.

After Yoyo got the Shiv he dropped Macca faster than a rat down a drain pipe

Isn’t Macca rolling around on a BMC these days? 

I think Niseko approved of those, if not certain middle eastern values...

ok I will admit -

My first IM 13.05 at 43yrs old

Did 6 more all under 13hrs

PB on my 7th go at 50yrs old - 11.29

Now 54.. not as fit as at 50 but never say never doing another one day... hmmmm..

My motto always was.. race to finish and a good time is a bonus and DNFs are not in my mind EVER.

Your assumption on why this question was asked is wrong. The idea was to highlight the different angles everyone is coming from and to identify that not everyone values the same things equally.

So you saying it's a stupid question is a stupid statement.....from my perspective.

No, it's a stupid question. Sit back, think about what you want to know and the information you want to draw out of the forums audience. Then write it down and read it. Look and see if it can be worded better. Frame your thoughts on what you want to find out and the result you are seeking. 

Going by your explanatory statement in your response above, it would appear you are looking for several different items that you want people to respond too. By presenting them in a bullet point format you could focus responses even more. It could even be worth a poll which can present a data format which may assist you in using the information you see requesting. 

Then your question may not appear so stupid.
