Well my friends, Ironman #3 is officially in the books. It was a tough day out there with heat and elevation playing a factor in my day. I felt lucky to finish the bike and the run got tough for me pretty early on. They say that Ironman is a day of problem solving and luckily I managed to sort my problems out…going from thinking I may have to pull out of the race, to running a negative split on the marathon.
I finally broke the 16 hour mark and finished in 15:42:23…a nice 25 minute or so PR over 140.6 miles.
I have the best husband and parents who cheered me on and supported me through this whole crazy Ironman journey.
I also have the best friends and training partners a girl could ask for!
Congratulations to all Ironman Boulder racers!
