￼Brought to you by www.artoftri.com 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
Zoe Cameron sent through this weeks Age Grouper, here’s her email: Here is an AGOTW for you from Ironman Australia a couple of weeks back. Port Macquarie local Melinda Cockshutt, racing in the female 30-34 agegroup took out 3rd female overall in a time of 9.50. Melinda works, she is a mother of two young children and not only that, her husband Todd was also racing and he finished in 10.55. What you can say, except for WOW? I love the show!! Thanks and keep up the great work
Website of the Week
Toby sent through this weeks website: www.responsiblesporting.org Here’s what he said. Hi guys ... not ironman specific, but a good initiative in the US - and they're starting with triathlons (think the guys who set it up seem to be triathletes mainly so they're starting there).
Press release (see bottom of this email) was reported on Xtri two weeks ago. The Council for Responsible Sport is setting up a set of standards for races to be stamped as environmentally responsible. Great news, as to my knowledge most races DON'T do this kind of thing yet, certainly not formally. Would be good to see a few of the IM distance races looking at this kind of thing.
