Event comments:

WTC always does a good job with this race. This is my 6th consecutive year doing this 70.3. I am thankful to be able to have done this every year with a fairly decent time, although I would have liked to see the times come down a bit more LOL. Oh well.

I really enjoy doing this home turf race, it never gets old. It's tough, and satisfying.

This year was especially nice with tame winds and calm seas.

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.
