Triathlons and Races

Aviva Ironman Triathlon 70.3 Singapore
Do you not know that in a race all the runners compete, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it. Every athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable. So I do not run aimlessly; I do not box as one beating the air. But I discipline my body and keep it under control, lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified. (1 Corinthians 9:24-27)
Training for the vastly more wimpy OSIM Singapore International Triathlon already entails at least: training plans, training logs, route-familiarisation, progressive pacing, monitoring heart rates, weight-training, building endurance, warming-up, cooling-down, breathable attire, running shoes, right underwear, chaffing, correcting swimming technique, swim caps, goggles, building muscle, aerobic/anaerobic, timing work-outs, intervals, drills, recovery, maintenance, peaking, bike frames, cranks, bars, tubes, helmets, bike shoes, nutrition, energy packs, hydration devices, mounting techniques, riding tactics, staying aerodynamic, transitioning...

What more the Aviva Ironman?

What more the race for that most precious eternal prize?
