Cost of an Ironman

So, I (Trevor) just registered for Ironman Coeur d’Alene.  No thanks to the new owners of Ironman – $725 Canadian dollars later I am in the event.  $725!!!  I think an 8th place finish might recoup that much.  That’s the cost of a plane ticket to Europe.  Are they charging Pro/Elite athletes to enter an Ironman in Europe.  I may have to check that out.  Thankfully they let Heather enter for free ’cause she WON the event last year.  Thank you so much for that generosity.  She’d still have to pay to enter the world championships though.  I bet Micheal Lovato still has to pay for the World Championships – and he’s been top 10 who knows how many times…plus he works for them…I think.

Good stuff.
