MAD, MAD, MAD-ISON!!!

In early September I competed in Ironman Wisconsin. It was my first venture to the cheese state and she did not disappoint. Great food, great people and a great (but HARD) course made for an unforgettable day. Here is my race report in pictures. Enjoy!

The Capitol building before sunrise on race morning…

wi-4

Transition took up an entire level of a parking deck and it was hopping in the predawn hours.

wi-1

Water temperatures were in the low 70s while air temperatures were in the 50s. that makes for one cold warm up swim!

wi-swim-start

And I’m off!

wi-helix-2

After exiting the water we had to run UP a helix just like this, go into transition, get our bikes and then ride back down. Twisty, turny, fun!

wi-bike

This was the one flat section of road on the course. Just kidding! But the hills on the bike ride were no joke!

wi-3

Coming into T2 and happy to be off the bike after a few mechanical issues.

wi-run

Let the run begin! The first lap felt pretty awesome and then I lost some mojo… But I finished on the podium in 10th!

 

Many, many thanks to my coaches and all of my sponsors (TenTen Coaching, CEEPO, DriveTrain Sports, Cobb Cycling RUDY Project, POLAR, Mac’s Smack, and Infinit Nutrition) who made this possible! I can’t wait to do it again!!!
