Event comments:

Mother nature did a job on this race. I am glad the promoters cancelled the swim. It would have been a horrible day for most if they didn't. This was the most fun I ever had at a Ironman and will do this race again. I did a Ironman last month with similar race weather. Promoters did not cancel a single mile. Dozens of people were hurt. I will never do that race again. It's nice to see that people are looking out for our safety.

wow  you are super speedy!! Glad you liked the area. I'm sort of a homer, being 2 hours away, but I love this town.  They truly want it to work and they tried their darndest.

I'm a swimmer and I agree with you, the swim would have been dangerous.

Often it makes sense to race slower in order to finish faster and at the same time have a more enjoyable Ironman Triathlon experience.

Iron distance racing depends on the three pillars of pacing, nutrition and mental outlook. Training these three areas can significantly improve your race.

I will be 20 this summer and am planning on doing Ironman Montreal. This will be my first year of triathlon, can I do this and stay away from injuries?

During the race there will be plenty of opportunities to exchange bottles, so I'm thinking about going with the aero bottle and Gatorade bottle and fill up as necessary. What should I do?

If a heart patient can do these things, then so can those of you who haven't been split open like a fish and sewn back together.
