He passed an incredible 437 people on the bike, and then had an AMAZING run - especially considering at Marine Corps Marathon last fall he ran 4:50:09 at a standalone marathon! 114.4 miles in his legs before that for the day yesterday only slowed him down 1 minute 21 seconds!?!? Now THAT is an IRONMAN!!!
Congratulations to all the other finishers as well!! And thanks to my training buddy Dave who unfortunately wasn't able to compete, but instead was on site all day keeping me updated via Blackberry messages. I appreciate it and it was fun to feel like I was part of the action!
