Best first Ironman?
I'm planning to do my first ironman this year.
I have done a few marathons, several shorter triathlons and some cycling, and am generally good at endurance but not that fast. So the cut-off time might be a problem.
I'm thinking of entering Barcelona - which seems ideal in terms of training over the summer - but am worried about the 15 hour cut off time.
Is the course faster than others (so that the 15 hour cut off is equivalent to a 17 hour cut off elsewhere)? Or do you just need to be baster in Barcelona..!
Are there any other races I should consider instead?
