Ironman Kansas 70.3 -- 2009

Lawrence, KS -- June 14, 2009

Mark Allen said that there's no such thing as a bad race so long as you learn something. By that standard, I had a great race.

Ironman Hawaii 70.3 -- 2009

Waikoloa, HI -- June 1, 2009

I love the Big Island. I get a great vibe from it and I always feel like I'm going to race fast here -- contrary to every result I've ever had. My goal was to go close to 5:00 hours (ok, maybe even to break the magic barrier) -- a very ambitious goal given last year's heat induced bonk and 5:37 finish, but I'm all about overestimating my own abilities.
