Will Chrissie Wellington Return to Ironman?

It’s old news now that Chrissie Wellington, 4x World Ironman Champion (2007, 2008, 2009, 2011) is taking a break for 2012 to pursue other interests and promote her new autobiography A Life Without Limits: A World Champion’s Journey scheduled to come out on May 15th.  This is good news for the strong women in the field, who now have the opportunity to fight for first rather than race for second. Can being unbeaten in her 13 Ironman starts be the magic number? Olympic dreams are not in the cards for her as they continue to be for Macca. Will a best selling book, motivational speaking engagements and other life pursuits be enough? I might venture to say yes.   But read what Chrissie thinks:  http://www.guardian.co.uk/sport/2012/feb/20/chrissie-wellington-ironman-triathlete?newsfeed=true
