Not sufficient hill training.

Event comments:

Camp Pendleton had tons of military personnel that volunteered. However, actual race venue had little or no course volunteers and those that were wearing the shirts did not know simple items such as where to go to athlete check-in, where the swim leg starts, were to turn on run, etc..

Some mistakes I made during the Hawaii Ironman 70.3. Don't be caught out on the course not knowing how or not having the equipment to change a flat tire.

It was the morning of Ironman Newfoundland 70.3, I felt queasy. I didn't want to eat or drink anything. I had a full blown case of the pre-race HEEBEE GEEBEES.
