We're not all Joe, Hillary Biscay or Petr VanBrousek (sp?)
Absolutely! In Joe's case I tell him, "can you imagine if you had a twin brother? You would kill yoursleves trying to out-do each other". ;-) Ability to do multiple IM depends on a lot of things, finances and time included.
Joe as always said he felt like a lab rat. It was an experiment on what the long term effect of racing
multiple IM would be. Remember although he is not as fast as the Pros, he is going all out at every event, not "just finishing". (not that there is anythng wrong with it) Many of you know he is now prone to Afib. It is hard to say if this was genetic or triggered by the training/racing. He is also quite lucky to have survived all these years without serious injury. This could be be due to smart training as well, though.
I know Paula, Ken Glah and Scott Tinley all did multiple IM. Paula, I believe, once won on consecutive weekends. Scott claims it ruined him, Ken is still racing a couple IM a year. Everyone may have different results, but it is certainly doable.
