Ironman Canada 2010 – The Short Story

I did it!  I raced and completed Ironman Canada in 16 hours, 7 minutes and 57 seconds on Sunday.  What an amazing day!!!!  Despite some tough parts I smiled pretty well the entire time and just had the most unbelievable experience.  It is going to be hard to put it into words but I will try.

I have the best family, friends, coach and teammates possible.  They were out there, cheering me on late at night.  They were tracking me online and posting updates on Facebook.  You all were fantastic and I was floored by all of the support.  Thank you so much!!!  Now let’s get to the story, shall we? :)IMGP0619

I used this “slow is smooth, smooth is fast” in my Du today. It worked beautifully!

I will definitely use it on my next swim. Thanks!
