I’ve recently read in a very good book about endurance training/lifestyle that back in the day, one of the authors, Mark Sisson, had to pay 85$ to enter Ironman Hawaii. Hahahahahahaha

As an 18 year old IM Finisher, I can safely say it was the hardest year of my life. 11 months of training, hours away from family, friends and school. It was all worth every minute!

I don’t know how to feel about the hours spent, I do that amount of hours and I only train for Sprint’s

Join a triathlon club and do a race that other members are doing. It is so much more fun to have a crew to do a race with. training with them and racing with them creates some of the best friendships about it.

How many are fit enough to finish in under 17hours within 2 weeks?

Money is the big deal for me…

Not yet… but I am working on it.

Going with friends and sharing the costs helps too.

I would love to see a video on You GTN guys. How do you fit in training, work and family all together? Awesome Show!

Cheeky – I see you’ve multiplied all the actual costs by 10 for this video 😛
