Just saw your finish time – way to go on timing for everything! You rocked your swim time & bike time, even though you say you’re pretty slow on bike – a whole hour less than predicted on your goal post. Congrats to you, Kelly & Ben ๐Ÿ˜€

Congratulations. Way to completely smash your goal. Just goes to show what can be achieved off a solid base and doing your best with training while working full time. I think the lesson here is that it isn’t some magic quantity of miles or hours of training you need to hit, just good consistent efforts over a training cycle, and being smart on race day by not going out too fast. There seem to be a lot of overtraining advocates out there, but your result speaks for itself. You really did amazingly well.

So happy for you!

Congrats Ironman!!! You rocked that race! And by the way, this is the first time ive looked at a race result page like that and its so cool to see your race results broken down into such detail, almost min by min for each event, even showing how long you spent at each transition. Cant wait hear about your experience!
Ive been following your blog for a few years and the way you balance a super active healthy (Ironman!!!) lifestlye with a full time job as a newley wed…. Truely inspiring! Your stuck to your plan and kicked ass! Great job!
