In this episode:

Last week I had the opportunity to participate in the Ironman Ohio 70.3 triathlon.  My idea was to give you audio as it was happening, but when listening to the audio I was not happy with it.

Instead I talked through the race from checking into Ironman Village to crossing the finish line.  My objectives were to give a product review of the race for the experienced triathletes and give some sense of what it is like to take part in a 70.3 for anyone that is thinking about signing up for one.

This episode covers -

  • Checking in at the Ironman Village
  • Ironman Merchandise
  • The Mandatory Meeting
  • Equipment Check & Shakeout
  • Equipment Check-in
  • The Morning of
  • Swimming the Delaware Lake
  • Cycling in Delaware and Columbus
  • The Run Course
  • Finishing

I hope that this gives a nice overview of what it is like to experience the race.  Please use the comment section below to ask any questions or provide feedback.
