Most painful run yet, ran out of fuel due to flat tire on bike, had no energy left to run. Really poor performance.

Event comments:

Post race food was horriable!!

Ironman events are really starting to suck and are not worth the CASH!!! I just don't understand why the commercialization of an event has to RUIN it - Niantic Bay is very similar once Amica took over.
