A story of the unremarkable, the extraordinarily average and the genetically challenged. And also triathlon.

There are only two ways into the Ironman World Championship in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii: either be very good or very lucky.  I'm one of the lucky, the 200 "common" athletes that race founder John Collins insisted always be allowed to compete. What follows will be my attempt to document my journey towards the Ironman World Championship ... and to see whether it truly is better to be lucky than good.

Part Ten: More Karma?

More Karma?

The morning after the race, I examined the front wheel that had given me so much difficulty during the race. I was curious as to how well it had actually been secured to the rim, and wondered whether I had just simply been having a bad day or was the tire truly an issue. I let the air out and went to try to pull the tire off. It came off with one hand. I realized that it hadn't been bad luck at how miserably the wheel had performed, it had been good luck I hadn't rolled the tire and crashed out of the race.
