"Michael, I agree with your comment about the bike and run symmetry. I had a pretty slow swim, much slower than planned because it took me a while to realize how far left I was being blown and having to repeatedly correct my course.…"
"Does anyone have anything special they do after the race to be able to recover and sleep that night? The last endurance event I did was Lotoja (Logan to Jackson Hole 206 mile bike ride) and my night was horrible. It wasn't pain or…"
"Amy, I agree about the 70.3 attracting people. I love doing things in St. George, but with 70.3's getting so popular there are a lot more options for cheaper price, and less travel than through IM. I really want this IM just…"
"Does anyone know whether friends/family can track progress of athletes at IMSG? I thought I read somewhere that there is an information tent at the finish line that you can see which check points people have passed, is that through IronmanLive? "
"Troy here is what it has in the 2012 Athlete Guide:
Bike Cut-Off There are multiple cut-off locations throughout the bike course. The cut-offs are at mile 21 at 11:30 a.m. (start of the first loop), mile 64 at 2:05 p.m. (start of the second…"
"Sounds like my yesterday workout, except it was the swim I had to bail out on. Somehow I kinked my neck yesterday morning when I woke up to go work out. It hurt like crazy to turn my head to breath in the swim and just got tighter so I…"
"So with the temp hitting 90 in St. George this weekend, would people rather have the race in sunny 90 degree weather, or 80 and windy? Just some food for thought after hearing about the Boston marathon being so dangerous being in the mid-80…"
"Random question. My dad was at a group century ride over the weekend and was drinking gatorade on the ride. One guy told him that he should mix it with water or have one water bottle and one gatorade because the gatorade has too much…"
"Hey it's easier on the bike than the run. Last year I did a Half IM in Provo, and the run was on a trail that skirted some streams and on one particularly busy section where people are going both ways on the trail, one gal decided she…"
"Question about the nutrition on the bike course...do they hand up the Ironman Perform and waters to everyone, or is it necessary to actually stop at some of the aid stations? I'm curious if I should bring my insulated water bottles to…"
"@Amy - Try Willard Bay. I haven't swam there before, but they do have a triathlon there early June so it must be a decent place. Looks like the water temp is slightly colder than Sand Hollow, but it would be a good place to test the…"
"Amy, sorry I didn't realize that was you that was pulled over on the side. I was expecting a bit more of a pink jersey! My dad was saying how bad the winds were on his way down after Veyo, but mine wasn't too bad. It was…"
"Amy, I will be down there as well, but a different plan. I'm going to swim for an hour, hop on my bike at Sand Hollow ride the full course, but just one loop. Then Do 1-2 loops on the run depending on how I feel.
"I will only go sock-less for sprint tri's. I tried it for an Olympic once and was in great deals of pain the last couple miles of the run from blisters. The bike is one thing to not wear socks on, but if you plan on putting them on…"
