Please stop making more events.
Fix the entry process instead.
Exclusivity = awesomeness.

  1. >My dear Ironman letter would read like this:Dear NAS/WTC,Why did you feel the need to put an Iron-distance race in cold ass Utah on May 1? Who do you expect will do this race and enjoy it? Could you have put it in a shittier location?Also, did you not learn your lesson from LAST time you tried to have a race in Utah, which wasn’t even so early? Someone died. Yeah, that’s right, they died because there was a squall in the lake and he drowned. If Lake Placid is cold in July, Utah will certainly not be raceably warm in May. Please stop having races for the sake of having races. Also, don’t charge so much for a t-shirt and what’s probably a worse medal than the ING Miami Half.
