A genuine question! I have the upmost respect for those that do ironman, but after browsing this forum for a while, it seems that ironman is kind of all people are interested in. I just wondered why?
Personally, I would never do an ironman, because I know it would be utterly horrendously painful and I would perform terribly. I can understand the satisfaction of finishing, but I think I'd get more satisfaction from doing shorter events, that I would enjoy (as I wouldn't be on deaths door) and that I could try to perform well in. I'd rather get a decent time at sprint or olympic distance than a terrible time at ironman.
Just wondering....? Thoughts?
