Yes, it is January already and that means the start of my preparation for the Hawaii Ironman! And for the fifth year in a row, I made the trek to Pucon, Chile to race in the ½ Ironman race. I had won it the four previous times, but this time I had the pleasure of some very talented women – Heather Gollnick (3 time Ironman Champion), Susan Williams (bronze medalist at the 2004 Olympics!!!) and Erika Csomor (World Duathlon Champion, IM Austria Champion and a 2:39 marathoner).

Kyle Jones (Heritage Way) placed first among the Elite Men in 59:38 managing to break the one hour mark. Among the Elite Women, Victoria's Suzanne Weckand managed to make it to the top of the podium in 1:06:47. Jones has been National champion twice for 2005. Look for Jones and Weckend to stand on more podiums in 2005.
