Do we get to pampered at Iron distance races with all the support at aid stations. Should we have to be more self sufficient?

Age Grouper of the Week
Freddy sent through this weeks age grouper, Shawn Burke. Check out his email: I believe Shawn should be your age grouper of the week, not just because of his unbelievable race in Arizona, especially in those conditions, but Shawn is just a great ambassador for Triathlon. He has always been more concerned about everyone else than himself and wants to see his friends and clients succeed at any level. Did I mention that he is also a certified Triathlon and Cycling Coach. That's just a part time Job. He has his "Real" job, a wife, and 3 kids.
Shawn is always the first to try out new technology and pass his findings to the group. He trains harder than anyone I know and takes his training very seriously. Everything is by the numbers. Shawn is very analytical (anal) about his training methods and it obviously pays off. Just check out his Athlinks page and you can see his results.
For my first Ironman Shawn flew out to the race just to support me. He wasn't even racing, he just flew out to watch and cheer me on. That's just how he is. It's rare to find a friend who will do that.
We’ve got a few good High 5’s coming up over the next few shows. This weeks one will start the ball rolling. HIGH 5 : How to survive the snip gracefully
