Quotes from ticker:

<The day starts day in SailFish Quay. With the water temperature hovering around 22 degrees wetsuits are highly recommended.>

<I can see some people have chosen NOT to wear a wetsuit. Brave, silly or extremely resilient to the cold?>

Sounds pretty warm to me. What a bunch of softies these Aussies must be.


Race no 108 for anyone on nights who cares to follow his progress

Morningn all.  Race started at 10pm-ish our time I think

Scores on the doors
Swim 1:47:29
Bike 47k - 1:37:29
        74k - 0:57:12
      102k - 0:54:37
      130k - 1:02:48 (total race time 6:29:26)

That would take him to 0430am so guessing tracker's stopped updating and he should be off the bike by now. Unless he's had a Roth repeat

Go Pirate!

According to ironmandead, he's just come out of T2.

And he's just been sighted on MrsKangalive via FB

Probably had a beer in T2


03/06/2012 at 07:39

T1 was 9:51 and T2 was 8:24 so that may have been his second beer of the day.

Macca (who didn't do much long training either) finished in 09:05:12

About 10 more miles running for Kanga to do.

  There's no sandbag prize to go after this year. Maybe that's why he's slower.

Hi Gang,

My brother has just finished Cairns Ironman, Swim 1.32, Bike 5.56, Run 5.42, Total time 13.26.52. not his best time, looks like he nailed the bike but had a tough marathon. I take my hat off to him he's in the 50-54 age group.

C,mon Kanga

03/06/2012 at 12:17

About 3k to go.


03/06/2012 at 12:21

C'mon you Aussie Mincer! 

I seem to remember him telling me that Ironman was meant to be three consecutive events... And there's him taking the best part of 20 minutes in transition FFS!!!

And after a 1.45 swim! I thought Aussies were born knowing how to at least doggie paddle! Clearly not! 

Keep shuffling!!!
