One of the great things about the Ironman is an aide station every 10 miles with water bottle hand ups.  Sticky?  Thirsty?  need more of something?  Just grab it from the volunteer holding it out for you.    Oooh, here's a little trick that people who train in hot climates know.  Near the end of the ride, when it starting to get hot, dump some of that water on your body to cool off.  Tricky to remember because it's usually so cool coming out of T1.

Often it makes sense to race slower in order to finish faster and at the same time have a more enjoyable Ironman Triathlon experience.
