Ironman Wisconsin

I am volunteering for this to get dibs on sign up for next year. They have motorocycle volunteering available where you just need to be able to carry USAT officials around the course. Still plenty shifts available if anyone is interested. I will be signing up as a motorcycle volunteer.

The race link is here. http://www.ironmanwisconsin.com/

On another note, anyone doing Steelhead half Ironman this weekend? I am signed up. Registration closed this morning, i signed up yesterday. Its in benton harbor MI. Here is the link : http://www.ironmansteelhead.com/

I won't be doing any more of these until I get my running sorted out and get a TT bike. Have fun and good luck bro.

Thanks man. I will post up on how it is in comparison to Racine. You plan on doing any full ironman races in the future?

Man, I am on the fence about signing up for Wisconsin next year.
Part of me wants to, the other part wants to master the 70.3 first... then the other part want to just go for the win at Olympic distances.

It would be cool to run the officials around one bikes, are wheelies acceptable?
Down side is, that is still 17 hours worth of labor.

Who knows. Maybe once I am able to run a decent pace for a long distance I might try, but really I just want to do one just to say I did it. It doesn't sound fun at all, actually rather boring. I am a believer that to race you must go all out, and that race is exactly the opposite of that. I will do another 70.3 for sure until I get under 5 hours, hopefully next year, and then maybe once a year for kicks. I know I will settle on trying to hammer the Olympic distance though. That seems like the perfect distance to race and separates the fast from the average pretty quick.
