  • Comments: This is just such a great race. The location and the course are great for me. I really wish I had a chance to spend more time hiking and exploring the area. I can't believe that this race wouldn't sell out in 1 day. The volunteers were awesome and the local support was amazing. I'm such a lucky guy to be able to do things like this. My wife, Sue, understands me better than I understand myself. She knew how badly I wanted to do well in this race and supported me unconditionally all summer. She had the kids on board with this and I had a cheering section after most long rides. Unfortunately, Ironman training is not a balanced lifestyle for me....at least not the way I want to train. I'm sure I'll be back at the IM distance in a few years but it's back to HIM and local races for a while. I neglected so many things at home this summer. I should probably mention that I finished 10th in my age group and there were 8 kona slots. 2 guys passed before me so I had the opportunity

  • Comments: I loved this race and loved Mont Tremblant. It's like a swim, bike, run mecca up there. This race is like a hidden gem how it doesn't sell out day one is beyond me. Just awesome logistics for this race and a great venue with great hospitality. I have to thank God for keep me safe and watching over me all day. I have to say thank you to the organizers who did a great job this year along with the volunteers who were awesome. The supporters were great and out in force cheering on the athletes. The town really embraces this race. Thank you to all the emergency personal who supported the race as well and helped keep the athletes safe through out the event. I also have to thank my wife Joyce and my three kids Kayla, Erynn and Austin for their help and support without which I'd not have been able to do this. There is lot's I can say but it just doesn't seem like it'd be enough. I love them all. Thank you once again to my Beginner Triathlete mentoring group the Asphalt Junkies. They're

  • Comments: Great race for me! I would like to thank the following: 1. My lovely iron wife Tracie for her support. None of this happens without her. 2. My kids and parents. Especially Megan, who encouraged me to stick with triathlon when I was debating quiting it last year. 3. My Coach Shane from Scotia MultiSport. Great guidance in training and racing this year. 4. Team Zoot and their sponsors: Ceepo Bikes, Garmin, Gu, Fuel Belt, Lake Cycling Shoes, Bonk Breakers, Smith Sunglasses, TriBike Transport Some have asked me if I am really disappointed about missing Kona by 7 sec?? Well, yes in a way, but honestly we are building a house this year and the time and the money involved would not be right. I need a little R&R right now and more family time. I also would have missed my cousin's wedding, which would have been an issue. Nest year I may give it a shot, maybe I won't, but in essence I can be proud that my performance (in the very competitive AG and race) was Kona-esque. I

  • Comments: I have never done an IM before but I can honestly say this was the best race I have ever done and I know this is the best IM on the circuit in North America, hands down! This town really embraces the race and the athletes and it is such a beautiful area. Everything is so organized, everyone is friendly, there are so many volunteers you really do not need to do anything. I love all the activities they have during the week and things to do in town. Wife and I are already talking about just going up there again next year to vacation because we love it so much. If you are on the fence about this race, do not be. Sign up and it will be the best decision you make. This really is a world class race, in a world class venue with world class Race Directors and Volunteers. Thank you Mont Tremblant for making my Ironman Experience so wonderful. Also, it was great to meet so many BTers at the race. This website and the people on it helped me get through this race in more ways then they will

  • Comments: I loved this race. The course itself was beautiful and just challenging enough. It has built in charm. The locals were supportive and very nice. I'd only done one IM before, and again, the volunteers were awesome. They were everywhere, and extremely helpful. I hear some criticism of WTC, but I can't complain. I feel like I get what I pay for. I had an amazing race experience, and would without hesitation do this race again.

  • Comments: I will remember this race until the day I die. While the bike course was especially challenging, the beauty of the surroundings was incredible. With the exception of the two miles leading from the start to the bikepath, the run was pretty flat. There were plenty of fans to cheer me on. The fam. loved the venue and are already bugging me to do it again. I'm so glad I chose this race instead of Rev3 Cedar Point.

  • Comments: This was a great race! I loved the people, the course and the area where the race was held. It was icing on the cake to be able to compete with Brad, friends and teammates. We walked away with our group all crossing the finish line which is enough to celebrate - add in some PRs and Laura's Kona slot and 2nd place in her age group and it's an understatement to say it was a really great day.

  • Comments: First IM but what an amazing venue. Highly recommend Tremblant - course is great- roads are smooth and closed to traffic, volunteers were plentiful. The village itself was great for food - lots of healthy choices. Tons of activities for the kids - mine are already asking when we're going back. An amazing first IM experience.

  • Comments: This was definitely my favorite IM of the 4 I have done (LP, AZ, and KY as the others). While they were all great, the venue, organization, and spirit of IMMT were a cut above. Absolutely top-notch. And if you have kids, I can't imagine there is a better IM venue out there.

  • Comments: Wow. First IMMT is just an amazing amazing experience. While it is my only 140.6 to date, it was an extraordinary venue and event. When I picked my first full last year I had read the early rave reports and decided on this over IMLP. I can't exaggerate how much local support the community puts behind this race. The town is all in, as evidenced by 3 WTC events here in 2014. If you've got a family, it's not even a question. People have said it's a hard course, but if you train anywhere near hills like we do in the northeast it's REALLY not that bad (i ran a 34/28). From my perspective, I met my goal of sub 13. I can identify an easy 15-20 minutes I left out there at my current fitness level, but at this point, really, that's not important. I think if I really went after it I could have pulled a 12:20 or so. Before Sunday I was pretty adamant that I wouldn't be doing another one of these until the kids were in college. Now I'm not so sure. I'll focus on sprints and 70.3's in

  • Comments: As disappointed as I was with my overall time and placing, I have to applaud the volunteers, the town, and the whole staff that put the race on. It was a great event and I felt very supported throughout the whole weekend. Even though I didn't get a slot to Kona I was glad to see those who did at roll-down and elation that they showed was almost contagious. Katie and I have decided that IM racing will not be in the cards for the foreseeable future as I want to be with Jackson and Katie on weekends and after work. Maybe one day I'll get one of those Kona slots, but it probably won't be for quite a while. Here's a link to my blog post on those precious 7 seconds: http://262toboylstonstreet.blogspot.com/2013/08/7-seconds.html

  • Comments: I love Ironman Canada in Penticton (or what once was IM CAN now that they are moving) but I think that Ironman Mont-Tremblant is now my favorite venue. Can't say enough good things about this race. I'm already registered for this race for 2013 and can't wait for round 2.
