Hi all. Firstly I love your magazine, and devour it cover to cover when it lands on the mat. My only concern is that I'm 25, and doing lots of Olympic distance races but there seems to be increasing pressure to do an Ironman. The magazine is filling up with stories of previously overweight people whose first tri was an Ironman, and I can't help but feel that it's being made too mainstream.
Should normal mortals really be encouraged to do such a long event, or is it better for the majority of people to stick to Olympic distance or 70.3?
