2017 IRONMAN 70.3 Mont Tremblant Race Report

11 days! Holy man! How is it 11 days already? I have no doubt posts in the next while will be full of useful information on HOW TO FREAK OUT right before your Ironman effort. So stay tuned!

Some things are of course more important than others. See if you can spot the priorities. And of course, if you see anything missing, feel free to make suggestions in the comments below.

11 days!!

ps.  I built this on Triathlon Race Checklist because that site rocks.  Check it out if you need a list of your own (pens not included).
