A very brief race report.

Here is my six word "mime":

Harder than hard, the hardest ever..
(this includes Ironman Florida)

I will post more tomorrow but in short, this took the cake. I finished DFL..

That would be "Dead f&*&^*king last! But I finished, got the bling, got the finisher's T-shirt and did not get pulled from the course. I took 2nd in my AG despite adversity, hills, wind, falls on the bike and run, ice cold lake, hot conditions.. and lived to tell about it..

I experienced a new meaning for the term "endurance" today..

I am SO GLAD I wasn't there!

Er, I mean, Congratulations on your finish!

Yowch! I've had a couple of sadly slow races and I never gave myself NEAR enough credit for finishing but you are correct - enduring and making it to the finish line when you want to quit/puke/die/get medical attention is HUGE!

Well done!

Sounds like a great training weekend on the way to CDA.

Also sounds like a really tough race.

Good job for sticking with it to the finish line.
