|If anyone else is interested the registration opened yesterday and will close when it is full. Last year registration closed in 10 days.
This is the Ironman that I think has the easiest swim, because it is a lake and there is no real current.
My hardest part of this will be the marathon.

|A marathon is tough (equiv to a doubleC). A marathon after 5-6 hours of intense activity is reallly tough.
Id love to share your misery, but i've given up on IM distance 'till the littleone is a little more self-sufficient. Good luck.

|I've done several marathons and a handful of shorter tri's, but one of my lifelong goals is to do an Ironman distance event. With a three year old in my life, that goal will have to wait.
An Ironman is definitely one of the toughest physical challenges you can find. I have alot of respect for anyone who takes on the effort to prepare for and complete one.
Good luck and train well!

|I've wanted an Ironman on my resume, and that's both closest to home and pretty country. Work hard, have fun!|

|Yeap, I'll have to agree.
Can anyone suggest how to start trainning for one? I guess start small with normal local tri's, but trainning suggestions?

|this guy has the goods:
check out the section headed 'Endurance Essentials' for the basics. He's also written a book with Joe Friel, Going Long, which expands on what's on the web page. I've run a number of ultramarathons, so I know a bit about endurance training: his methods and theories are reliable, IMO.
