|Ironman Australia - 2nd Place Race Report|
Click here to see pictures and read about my 2nd place finish at Ironman Australia
Last weekend I finished 2nd place at Ironman Australia. I am very happy with this result and now feel like 2013 is going in the right direction! I'm traveling home to Texas now, so check back in a few days and I'll post my race report along with race and travel photos.
| I must say that my race in San Juan did not go according to plan. My race report is up a little later than I wanted, but I'm cutting myself a little slack, because I got married between then and now. The wedding took priority in life, so getting my race report up on time slid down the to do list. I finished in 19th place at Ironman 70.3 San Juan in Puerto Rico. For the first time ever in over 60 Ironman and Ironman 70.3 races, I actually took a wrong turn on the run, costing me around 3:30 minutes. I walked away from the race more angry than ever. The positive part of the race was that I didn't feel that my placement in the race was a fitness issue. I felt like my fitness was actually in a good place for so early in the year. Although I was 19th place in a pro field of 44 guys, after my anger of going off course went away, I felt good about how my fitness is shaping up.
