This time, I’m the x factor. Last time I was here I won. I’ve put so much pressure on myself. Now I’m putting the pressure on everyone else: beat me. I think . . . actually, I don’t think; good luck beating me. And good luck if you want to leave it to the last 5km, knowing I’ve spent the last year running with the fastest men in our sport. Who did? I did. You guys have been belting the shit outta yourselves in Ironmans. I’m fresher, I’m leaner, I’ve got nothing to lose. Good luck with all that.
