The once and perhaps future triathlete Lance Armstrong (@lancearmstrong) made it clear he’s not doing Kona this year: @ChicagoTriClub no Kona for me. Unless hangin out, riding bikes, and swimming w/ whales over the holidays count.

Reigning Ironman world champion Chris McCormack (@MaccaNow) let his Twitter followers know part of the reason why he’s happy to be back in Australia: Enjoyed a nice Aussie beer post run. Nothing like a Coopers. Made me realised why they serve US beer so cold! So you can tell it from Urine

Julie Dibens (@juliedibens) is getting heavily involved again with her “Twitter war” with reigning Ironman world champion Mirinda Carfrae: @Mirindacarfrae hey you’re supposed to be stuck in the desert! Leave my followers alone and get back to looking for cacti.

And Carfrae (@Mirindacarfrae) is enjoying her time in Borrego Springs, Calif.: Wind in the desert makes you strong.. Unless it breaks ur spirit first.. Oh dear, it’s going to be a tough 3 weeks!

Olympian Jarrod Shoemaker (@jarrodshoemaker) is having some fun with his fantasy tri team while in Sydney for the first World Championship Series race: At dinner in Sydney. half my fantasy tri team just walked in they are looking fit.

Ironman champion Belinda Granger (@belinda_granger) is looking forward to racing against multiple Kona winners Chrissie Wellington and Natascha Badmann at Ironman South Africa: starting to get very excited. Race day is almost upon us. Amazing to be racing alongside CW and Natascha- 2 of the best our sport has seen
