- Signing up for an Ironman 12 months in advance
- Is triathlon only for the rich?
- Does the average triathlete really spend $22,000 a year on this sport?
- Is the boom of triathlon a mere fad (the new golf)? Or something here to stay?
- Are running races getting too big? (NYC Marathon)
- Is the marathon just a bucket list item nowadays?

- Are there too many unqualified coaches out there?
- Are you purchasing flashy equipment to go faster (aka buying speed)? Or is it really for the ego boost to look cool?
- Do people train with too many "gadgets?"
Do you have any reactions to a topic listed above? If so, I wanna hear it! (leave a comment)
*DISCLAIMER!* I am a very unbiased person. The above list in my opinion is just a mere current events list of mainstream amateur endurance sports. I may or may not have a position on each topic and I am neither saying anything is "bad" or "good."
