  • Comments: What can I say? IM LP is a beautiful venue. Very well organized tried and tru event. LP course is without a doubt the toughest race course I have ever encountered. I am disappointed in my performance this year but I think my preparation could have been better. At times my heart was not in the training. I definitely did not diet well and raced this race 15 lbs heavier than I did 3 years before. I feel like I still have better Ironman races in me. I also think I need to change up my training a bit as it is getting boring and stale. I also think I need to seriously work on diet and nutrtion and weight a lot more before I attempt Ironman. Next year will be spent restructuring my training, working on better pre-race nutrtion, losing weight to race at a more healthier body weight, and most likely focusing on shorter distance events. I had contemplated retirement from triathlon after this event. After this race I know I need to take some time off...but I am not retiring or leaving...I have
