ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
$895? For a race? And it sold out in ELEVEN MINUTES?
*bangs head against the wall*
SHAME on you, WTC. SHAME.
And shame on the fact that there are apparently enough people willing to shell out over $900 in ELEVEN MINUTES to close out a race. I am sorry, but I gotta put my foot down on that one.
That is RIDICULOUS. END OF STORY.
Am I too poor for this sport? Is that where this is going? Because there is no way on earth I will ever participate in a race where the entry fee is almost $1,000. I don't come from that side of town.
And then what does this mean, really? That if you want to do a shiny, glittering Ironman race, you have to pony up your right arm, soul, and first born?
What is this sport about, anyway?
I tell you what, for me it's about hard work, persistence, dedication, and above all, community. A pox upon you, WTC. You may be taking your talents to South Beach here, but I sure as hell won't be.
