#270 - Ironman Has Gone Instagram

Crushing Iron Triathlon Podcast

Release Date: 05/23/2019

Many of our athletes felt like an opportunity was taken away when they shortened the swim at Ironman 70.3 Chattanooga. We completely understand the safety reasons surrounding the swim, and know these aren't easy decisions, so today we have an open discussion to see if there are other options; including introducing a Competitive Wave for racers that want the challenge. Is all of this creating bad habits?
