PR


I'll do a proper race report later when there is more time, but I wanted to throw something out there to let you know that I finished, and that I appear to be uninjured notwithstanding the pain in my left knee and right achilles. It was a mixed day, but I am proud to say that I beat my first Ironman time by about 45 minutes, mostly due to a better bike split, and I finished (barely) under 14 hours.

It was hard (duh!!), but it was made both easier and more enjoyable knowing there were so many people here and online who were interested in following a pint-sized, age-grouper at the back of the Ironman bell curve.

Now, where's the ice and ibuprofen?
