Hi, can you elaborate on this statement:

"For example, at Google we apply machine learning techniques to ensure that a given service is operating at top efficiency."

It's easy to make such statements and as we know the devil is in the details.

I don't doubt you all have cool "AI" tools and algos to improve K8s based on usage stats. However, giving some concrete hints at some of the insights you have uncovered would not disclose any secret sauce while giving credence to the statement.

My First Ironman Experience by the Numbers

Instead of sharing the details of the Ironman experience with lots of words, let me instead share the pertinent numbers. 

I do this for two reasons: 1) there are many blogs about IM experience and they tend to be repetitive, and 2) I have the numbers so why not summarize that for posterity. 

Oh, also, still pretty tired, so numbers might be easier than words at this time for me. So with that here are the salient figures I tabulated.

360 days since Ironman Coeur D’Alene, Idaho, registration on June 24, 2013

13h44m12s (total, with transitions, unofficial, on my watch)
10.3 mph average speed
40.1 mph, max speed on bike

#BrazenRacing   #RockyRidge  half marathon at the Las Trampas Wilderness.

The hardest run I do all year.  It's 4K+ feet elevation gain on 13.7 miles.  New PR for the course at 2h31m33s (20 minutes faster than last year) and came 46/222 overall and 5th in my age group.
