I was shocked to see a post on Facebook saying that 4x Ironman World Champion (and undefeated at the Ironman distance!) Chrissie Wellington announced that she will be taking a break from Ironman in 2012. Rather than me telling you all about it, you can go to her website to read the actual post from the legend herself.
The announcement can be found on her website by clicking here.
Hopefully she'll be more successful at her other endeavors than Chris McCormack has been...doh! (no disrespect intended...)
