Iron Joe!

We have had a long but exciting day today. As you can see, we were up at the crack of dawn to drive to Galveston for his half-Ironman. Although the conditions in the water and on the bike were windy and rainy, Joe raced a record day! He was 7th out of the water at 30:56, with a 2:19 transition onto the bike. He finished the 56-mile bike route in 2:33:55 with a 1:05 transition to the run. He completed the half-marathon in 1:40:04, a record time for him!
His finish time was 4:48:22, placing him 6th in his age group out of 66 total competitors and 19th place overall out of 417 total competitors! I am so proud of him. I guess his hours of training, strict diet and no alcohol has really paid off!
