  • Comments: Lake Placid is so special to me. It was my first IM in 2006 where I vowed I was "one and done". And it was where Brad and I completed lucky #13, the final check mark off of the to do list on our way to Kona 2016. My favorite race experience to date is being able to run half of the run course with Brad. Lake Placid 2015 did not disappoint. 2006 vs. 2015 Swim: 1:10.46 vs. 1:07.02 T1: 11:08 vs. 7:30 Bike: 8:38.06 vs. 7:34.06 T2: 5:26 vs. 6:51 Run: 6:22.47 vs. 5:07.46 Total: 16:28.11 vs. 14:03.15

  • Comments: Training was really a struggle with a pregnant wife and two small kids. Then my mother-in-law was hospitalized during the peak training weeks. I just didn't get enough training in to really be where I like to be in these races. It was kind of a miracle I made it at all so overall I'm happy with the results.
