Beware the Ides of February

I have an Ironman World Championship wall calendar. Look at the dates for the last week. I wonder if they make the same mistakes when marking their race courses?

Could you describe last weeks supposed events for those of us without magnifying glasses?

I didn't say look at the events; I said look at the DATES.

Ok, so I'm a little slow. Got it now. May 29 seconds be added to your next race results.

Apparently someone thought it was a leap year, but not quite.

Well, Laurie stole my thunder.

And we shouldn't joke about mismeasured races. They had a lesser known race in Chicago where they had to change the course at the last minute.

They changed it, remeasured it, and apparently had a math-challenged individual in charge. The marathon was something like 27 miles, but labeled as if it were 26.2.
