Bernie's Ironman Florida Race Report

The swim was like a washing machine,thought I would take the bouy line,but it was a complete cluster,hoping to swim under 1hour but failed to do so.

Still ok with outcome of swim. Had a good T1,Florida tends to have a long T1.(5:00minutes),happy with that.

Jumped on the bike,rode the 1st 40km at 1:03(too fast)slowly started to go down from there.

Everything went well,had a PB on the bike(5:20) still lots of people passed me. Had a good T2(3:00)felt good but slow on the 1st 18miles,had stomach issues - dry heaving(cant seem to get nutrition right on the run,walked a bit(400 meters at most).

Ended up with a blistering 4:13 marathon(wow)oh well to say I'm happy with the end result is a understatement, I had visions of a sub 10 hour Ironman ,but did achieve my Pb in the distance,so I should be happy with that(NOT)
