Gray's Lake, Des Moines, Iowa
Swim 1.2 miles in Gray's Lake.
Bike 27.2 miles (shortened by a rain delay that pushed start time three hours late).
Run 13.1 miles in the heat and humidity of at least 86 degrees.
Here is how a couple of Diablo Cycling competitors did:
Even whilst dealing with some inadequate hydration "TMI" issues, not to mention tight achilleas and calves (runners deal with challenges that pure cyclists will never know), Scot Rajsich's perseverance and extensive Ironman experience brought him across the finish line.
The last year, Sally prepared for three disciplines, raced, and completed her mission.
With the support of her accompanying family Jon, Megan and Macy, she truly enjoyed this event.
What else needs to be written? Job done and done well.
