I've had no desire to read/write anything triathlon related since IM Wisconsin. I still don't, but I'll post the numbers before I lose the sheet I wrote it all down on.
2397 Individuals started IM Wisconsin assuming everyone finished the swim.
Swim - Super thrilled with time. Ten minutes better than I swam it four weeks prior at the Madison Open Water Swim, and my pace was better than any 1/2 iron swim I've done (Racine excluded for obvious reasons).
304/356 age group
T1 - Still my best event relative to the field. Dressing myself for all these years is really starting to pay off.
105/356 age group
Bike - Also thrilled with time. On the fast side of where I thought I would be.
6:32:11 (17.1 mph)
220/356 age group
90 didn't finish the bike
T2 - Second best event relative to the field.
123/356 age group
Run - Craptastic, wanted to puke for first 6-8 miles. Walked. By the time the stomach was better had huge blisters on both feet I'm still dealing with. Fun.
251/356 age group
131 didn't finish run
Overall - I'm ok with it now, all things considered. Only disappointing when I think of where I could have been with any reasonable run.
239/356 age group
My one interesting overall fact about the race numbers. Even if you take into account the 221 that didn't finish the bike or run. My run ranking (where I walked almost all of it), was significantly better than my swim rank, which I'm still thrilled with. This either says something about my swimming ability or the difficulty of an Ironman run. Not sure which.
Pictures and report still to come.
