First, a few words to those individuals who tried to sabotage Sunday's Ironman.

You tackheads.

These triathletes aren't toys. All summer, while you've been lounging on pork rinds and Red Man, they've been putting in the hard work, training on bikes that cost more than your engine block, running more miles on Sunday than you will ever, all of it for this one unforgettable race day.
