Well, there are the hard facts. It does not look like a good race, especially at the end and having to spend some time in the Med Tent, but I took 1:01:13 seconds off of my Ironman Arizona time. I will take it. It was not the outcome I was hoping for, but my season is over and now it is time to rest. I will be gathering my thoughts (lots of them) and getting it all down with pictures. Until then, I am in a bikini and I am heading to the beach.

Later Gators,

Liz

Holy $hizzle!

An hour off is totally amazing especially from some of the reports that I was getting about heat and wind!

Well done. Go get some margaritas and tacos.

Steve Stenzel said...

Yep, same time - but you bettered me everywhere but the run. I have a feeling you should have had about a hour faster run... if that stupid med tent hadn't gotten in the way!!

Congratulations on a great race!

AWESOME job Liz! It's SO. INCREDIBLY. MOTIVATING. to read about the amazing mountains people like yourself climb and the physical and mental accomplishments they achieve.

Way to go!!!

Regina said...

Fantastic! I might add you look great in the photo on your masthead too.

Do I really need to say how jealous I am that you are headed to the beach on a day when it is freezing here? grrrr...

Congrats on the PR!

Coach IronLiz,

It was so nice to meet you and spend so much time with you this weekend! You had one of the toughest races I've heard about so far, and I'm still so impressed at how you managed to get 'er done so strong! Looking forward to hearing all about it (again). Thanks again for making it a really memorable trip.
