Total Time = 5h 30m 52s
Overall Rank = 303/1295

Age Group Rank = 52/181

  • 01m 53s / 100 yards

Swim was rough. I swallowed a lot of water and was just hoping that I didn't make myself sick. Both hamstrings cramped up and I couldn't move my legs...Thank god it was only 200m out or who knows what I would have done.. I actually spoke to a few people who cramped up too, one of which got pulled from the course after he stretched out on a paddler's board and then cramped up again. (My guess is sitting in that hot sun for 3 hours and then jumping into freezing water has something to do with it.)
Time: 39:41 Goal: 40:00
Transition 1
  • 03m 27s
  • 2h 54m 26s
  • 56 miles
  • 19.26 mile/hr

Bike was very windy and had way more climbing than I expected...It just didn't seem like I had any time to relax. Either I was climbing, going into the wind or trying not to blow over. This took a lot out of me. I'm normally ready to run when I get of the bike, but after this ride I was literally telling myself that I was going to have to walk the run...
Time: 2:54:25 Goal: 2:40:00
Transition 2
  • 03m 54s
  • 1h 49m 25s
  • 13.1 miles
  • 08m 21s  min/mile

I Walked into transition defeated. Watching everyone jog their bikes in while I didn't have it in me sucked...I switched into my running gear, taking my time, and used the bathroom. I somehow mustered up a "run"...At this point I was thinkink 5 minute run, 1 minute walk just to get through to the end. Luckily after 5 minutes, or so, my legs loosened up. I never pushed the pace, but I stayed pretty consistent and emptied the tank the last 3 miles.
Time: 1:49:25 Goal: 1:45:00

It was a tough day out there with the chop and the wind.  Sorry you didn't have the day that you wanted.  Best of luck on the rest of your season!

Some mistakes I made during the Hawaii Ironman 70.3. Don't be caught out on the course not knowing how or not having the equipment to change a flat tire.

I thought of all the times I didn’t attempt something I wanted to do because I was too afraid of trying something new or of failing completely.

It was the morning of Ironman Newfoundland 70.3, I felt queasy. I didn't want to eat or drink anything. I had a full blown case of the pre-race HEEBEE GEEBEES.

A bad race left me smoldering, but time and a gentle breeze ignited my passion to race again.
