Weather was beautiful and we finished the course, completing the first two legs of an Ironman; the inaugural edition of the only iron-distance aqua-bike in existence!*
As always, Ellie rocked the course - I won't steal her thunder, though, I'll let her tell her own story.
Too tired for a report right now, and no official times or placements yet, but my watch times were:
Swim (2.4 miles): 1:52 (some currents slowed us all down in a point-to-point swim in a tidal river)
Transition: Long - about 12 minutes
First half bike (56 miles): 3:36
Second half bike (56 miles): 3:22
Total bike (112 miles): ~6:58
So I finished everything well under the cutoffs! Yay! But I'm just as glad I didn't have to follow it up with a marathon - at least not today!!
*Update: I've been corrected on this! Vineman has had a full aqua bike for a couple of years now.
