I was asked on the Slowtwitch Reader Forum, “At what point would I shift my focus from races like IM Canada to Kona?”
In my most ideal world, I’ll never have to shift my focus to Kona. That doesn’t mean that I wouldn’t race Kona, or even make it a priority, but I believe that the singular focus of this sport on a single race that is controlled by a for-profit entity that makes decisions based on that status is a bad thing. In other words, WTC could decide to do basically anything with that race, and no one could say anything.
If you aren’t tired of reading what I write, you can read the rest here on Slowtwitch.com. I will be glad to get back to training so that my brain shuts up again. Until then, thank you for your patience.
