Home from Ironman Arizona where I finished 2nd on Sunday.
I was stoked to finish the season off with a good race and a new personal best over the Ironman distance.
This year I’ve had my best races at the start and at the end!
The race started well getting out of the water in about 5th place in the front group.
Andrew Starykowicz rode straight through us and up the road about 10km into the ride and TJ Tollakson, Fraser Cartmell
were riding strong in our group.
The start of the 3rd and final lap TJ and eventual winner Nils Frommhold got away and the rest of the group stayed together
until the run.
I started the run in 4th place and went out hard running into 2nd at about half way but Nils was running too strong and I couldn’t bring him back quick enough and ran out of road.
My time of 8:04:58 bettered my Melbourne time by 1min.
I’d like to thank everyone, family, friends for their great support over the year especially Hillary, Mum, Dad, Karen, Presley!
My training partners Bevan, Tommy, Matt, Becky, Bella. Crowie for his in put and advice.
A huge thanks to my great sponsors Trek, K-Swiss, Blueseventy, Fuel Belt, Symmetry Sports, Campagnolo, Cyclops, Bontrager, Oakley, Base Performance.
Also to Jack from Jack & Adam’s for being a legend!!
