This was my third year returning to Coeur D'Alene for Ironman 70.3 CDA and it was by far my best year and somewhat of a little breakthrough for me. I made about a 14 min improvement over last year's time and almost 20 minutes from my first race here in 2016.
So I thought I would do a little follow-up race report as to how my race at Ironman Texas went down. If I had to quickly summarize the race I would say overall it was a success. I finished the race with a smile on my face and feeling pretty good. I kept the mental demons at bay and reminded myself of all of the support and kind words I had received from so many of you before the race. Sure, I would have liked to have gone MUCH faster, but I have learned that with Ironman you never know what the day will bring and it may take MANY races before you ever feel you got it just right.
