A New Ironman Race

Just got an email from the Ironman folks that they’re adding a new race in St. George, Utah. May, 2010. I can only imagine how stunningly beautiful and challenging that course will be. Or how fit one will have to be to cross the finish line. Just checked the weather average for May is 51 to 86 degrees. Record high is 108. Record low is 20. Yikes, how does an athlete prepare for 2.4 miles of swimming, 112 miles of biking and a marathon in temps like that with elevation to boot? It’s going to be amazing!
