Ironman Louisville – Enhanced Results

I promise that I’m going to get around to typing my race report, just haven’t had time yet.

In the mean time, here’s some cool stats from

The things that stick out the most are my transition times. There’s an easy explanation for these…I was stretching and putting on BioFreeze in the changing tents during both T1 and T2. Without the IT band injury, I would have been 4-5 minutes faster in both transitions. I also stopped three times on the run to put on more BioFreeze to numb the pain. So I have no doubt that I could have done a sub 12 hour race if I was completely healthy. I don’t want this to come off the wrong way – I’m completely happy with my race and it went better than I expected. I just felt the need to explain why my transition times were so slow.

    I also did IMLOU. I was curious how you found those stats on slowtwitch? I don’t use that site much, so I couldn’t find them. Any direction would be great. Thanks! And congrats!
