it looks like most of these carnage predictions were wildly off. 2:32, 2:33 and 2:34 for the podium with 27 dnfs. with no sun, it wasn't THAT bad. the top women in kona run in the low 2:50s and that's WITH the sun beating down on you in a lava field after biking 112 miles with more humidity.
What's wild is that you don't have a clue what you're talking about, yet still come on here and tell us what's what. 45% of the field DNFed. Some in the first 40 minutes. You obviously watched the race or you wouldn't be on here pontificating, but must have missed all the scenes of wheelchairs and ambulances.
