Had a great race at the Lake Stevens Half Ironman last Sunday. Ended up finishing in five hours fifteen minutes, that's thirty minutes off of my previous best time. I'm struggling with the race report - I've become so good at writing about disappointing performances that detailing a good experience has become a challenge.
Woke up at 5:00 AM yesterday for a swim in the lake. My open water phobia is starting to subside, which is good news going into Ironman Canada.
