Somewhat Amusing

If training this year is slow, at least I can enjoy a hangover reward from 2013.  I just got this e-mail today.  It appears I am ranked 796 out of ~18000 in my age group around the world for "Ironman Overall."  I have not a clue what is the ranking algorithm, although it clearly includes a bump for the number of races run.  Thus, I am 1670 of ~10,000 in the world in full IM races but much more competitive in overall -- even though my finish in Tahoe was much more competitive than my average finish in the two races (Tahoe plus Timberman) that I ran.

Congratulations Max on becoming a Silver IRONMAN All World Athlete.
