Firstly I'd like to thank all those who have supported me in so many different ways. Training for an Ironman is so much easier when you have the support of those around you. I won't mention names as I am guaranteed to miss someone. Everyone should know who they are anyway.

Chances are I won't be posting anything until I return from Port Macquarie. I quite like the idea of not touching a computer for a week. Naturally I'll be putting my effort into a full race report when I get back. For those interested in following the race check out the following two sites:



My race number is this year is 978.

  2. I don't wish people luck when they have trained hard because they don't need it.

    Race well, trust in your training and have a blast.

  3. Yeah Jas, have fun up at Port and go smash yourself. I am disappointed not to be up there this weekend as I was hoping to meet you.

    I will be keeping an eye on the computer throughout the day.

  4. I am so lucky to have ben following your journey over the past year and a half. This race is going to be one to remember!

  5. Nah, don't have fun. Just do the perfect race Jason - that's what I want to read about next week.

    Em's right - you don't need good luck (except to miss out on a puncture).

  6. Wishing you a fabulous race, can't wait to hear about it!

  7. Can't wait to start tracking the live race! Good luck - I'll be cheering for you as loud as I can from here!

  8. Wish I had found your blog earlier ... great posts, especially like the quotes thrown in here and there. Very inspirational. Going to take me ages now backtracking on your posts to understand your build up to IM. Good luck! Looking forward to reading your race report.
