"Ironman, really? Hawaii?"
[me]: "No Ironman Canada" :-)
"Oh, where in Canada?"
[me]: "Penticton, in British Columbia"
"Where is Penticton?"
[me]: "About five hours drive from Vancouver"
"Won't it be cold? Why not do Hawaii instead?"
[me]: "Actually it gets quite hot there sometimes 100F, plus to do the Hawaii one I'd need to qualify first, it the World Championship, that's certainly not happening this year" :-)
"And so it includes a full marathon? and how long was the bike again?"
