Good Luck Arizonians!

This weekend is Ironman Arizona, so best of luck to everyone out there who will be racing.

I don't envy these people; the weather report says Sunday will be high of 96 degrees. 96?!! In the Arizona desert? I was there last year to cheer on a friend and the big problem was the winds. But least with wind, at some point you get a tailwind to help you. Heat is just heat, there's nothing to help you with that. I suspect there will be a lot of people on the course wishing they were doing Arizona in November instead. I even feel sorry for the spectators.

But the greater the challenge, the sweeter the victory, right? So have a great race everybody!

Yeah, it's gonna be a cooker. A windy cooker. I predict many DNFs and lots of people on IVs....damn!
Good thing they are changing this to November!
