The mission of the Ironman Executive Challenge (XC) is:
"To provide the ultimate Ironman experience for the world's top business leaders."I will now enter my Dana Carvey 'Grumpy Old Man' persona, the embittered old man figure with white hair, glasses, and a sour sneer.
So, during a period when most of America is revolting against the the degree of the executive banking worlds’ brazen audacity to take bonuses comes another perk for the people who dwell at the top of the builing. At a time when the normal American Joe is putting heat on every board of directors to step up to the plate and prevent wasteful expenditures of corporate funds on outsized executive bonuses and other perks comes a benefit that really hits home to triathletes.
And this one makes me mad as hell.
Now, it's been a long day of traveling and meetings so if I misread this story and its intent, I'm sure some good soldier will point it out to me. But I sort of think WTC really timed this annoucement very, very badly.
