Mark Allen joined us to take a look back at Ironman 2013. His insight into why people were running fast off the bike in Kona-or not-was fascinating. We also discussed the issue of older pro triathletes, like three-time champion Craig Alexander, racing two full Ironman races a year rather than just one. As someone who won his last Ironman in 1995 at the age of 37, The Grip certainly is a great resource for this topic.

She came on to talk about what has been an unbelievable transformation.

Bart Aernouts from Belgium finished 11th last year in Kona with an amazing 2:47:10 marathon. When you look at his 2:37 run at Ironman France this summer, if he can hook up with the second swim pack in Kona and cut five minutes or so off of last year’s swim time, watch out!

Mel Hauschildt just won her second Ironman 70.3 World Championship. For a former steeplechaser, this triathlete-come-lately is an unbelievable talent. She started cycling to help recover from one of her 13 running-induced stress fractures. Next up was swim training, and in 2011 she won her first Ironman 70.3 World Championship title.

Luc Van Lierde is one of my all-time favorite athletes. Who else runs his first marathon ever during the 1996 Ironman World Championship, goes 2:41:48 and not only wins the Ironman in his first ever attempt at it, but sets a course record (8:04:08) that would stand for the next 15 years.
