Race Report:

I had no real intention of racing at Ironman Louisville this year. In fact, the only reason that I even paid attention to the race date was that one of my clients (Jean) was racing in it.

“Do you want to road trip with us to Louisville,” Jean casually asked one day. She was road tripping with her boyfriend, Ken, and friend / training partner, Adrianne. Ken was to be Jean’s “race bitch” during the weekend while Adrianne was racing.

“Let me think about it,” I replied.

With a quick email to the race director with reference to my pro card credentials and my race resume attached, I received an invite to race. The single biggest benefit (in my mind) of having a triathlon pro card is that I can sign up for triathlons at the last minute in spite of them being filled up months in advance.

“OK, I’m going,” I replied back to Jean.

The rest of the report with pictures is on my blog:
