It's that time of the year when the big fella in the red suit starts to make his list. We were wondering what you Ironman athletes are asking for? There's no money limit, dream away!
High 5, Staying Calm During Race Week
1. Write a check list for equipment.
2. Take some work to do (stuff that doesn’t have deadlines attached.)
3. Have a list of things to do, tourist things, during the week.
4. Clean bike.
5. Spend extra time stretching.
Age Grouper of the week
Natsha Lydiard from New Zealand came 2nd at the Long Course World Championships in Australia. Natsha had a 1:11:16 swim, 4:32:51 bike and a 2:47:53 run for a total time of 8:32:02. Well done Natsha, good luck with your future.
