On Sunday morning at 7:00am MST, I'll start the race day that will take me until sometime after sunset to finish. I am hopeful for a significant PR over my previous IM finish (14:59:02) and while I have some goals in mind I can't give you anything more definite than that. It's a very long race day and you never know what might happen along the way. I can only hope that I stay positive and keep moving forward no matter what!
If you are interested in tracking on race day, there are a couple ways to do that.
#1 Go to Ironman.com on race morning and there will be an orange-y box right up front with Ironman Arizona and a link for the Athlete Tracker. Enter my race number (#329) there! Once I am nearing the end of the run, you can also watch the Audio/Video link in the hopes of seeing me cross the finish line live.
#2 I'll be wearing a small GPS device for the bike and run that will allow you to see my location on course at any time. Go to My Athlete Live and click the Track My Athlete link in the top right. Find Ironman Arizona and click on my name. (For reference, the course maps can be found on the Ironman Arizona site).
Happy tracking, and thanks in advance for the support and cheering!
