I was up in Whistler filming interviews and pro athlete tips for Kicker Endurance, but also nabbed some photos along the course. As someone who has spent at least one full day in various capacities at Ironman for the last 10 years, I have to say that Whistler is putting on a great show. The crowd is great, the village amenities close by are great for spectators, the multi-lap run course is fun to watch, and overall it is just a spectacular place for a race.
