For months I've the same exchange over and over again with a number of different people I which goes something like this:

"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?"
