  • Comments: For a first year race, this was fantastic! Yes, the bike course was 116 miles vs. 112, but the venue, course and volunteers were amazing! Looking forward to some downtime, figuring out my hip issue and getting stronger and more flexible in the offseason.

  • Comments: Fully satisfied with my first full IM. I was very concerned with how this would turn out... since registering I moved into a new position at work and my training plan was decimated. I had every intention of following the Fink Competitive Plan, but that idea fell apart and I sort of cobbled together my own "plan" which saw me do a total of 6 rides of 75 or more miles with none in the 100's. My longest run since my spring marathon was about 15 miles, and since January I only swam about 38K meters. Not ideal IM training at all. Although I think that may have helped in that my mindset was to finish and have fun, so I really wasn't stressed at all leading up to the race. Additionally the weather conditions were perfect for the race, that certainly helped. The race itself was awesome, as was the 'Noog. The city and its residents were gracious hosts and I know that this race will be a favorite to many.

  • Comments: I can't wait to do this race again. There are talks to change the bike course. I hope it stays the same. Chattanooga and Georgia really came out for this and made it incredible. Ironman volunteers are amazing.

  • Comments: I wasn't sure about the bike course after riding it alone in August, but it was a lot better w/ the other racers and lots of spectators. While the run was tough I actually liked the hills just to break things up and make it a bit tougher. Definitely can't complain about a swim as fast as that.. good bit of current to help out.

  • Comments: This is a great race. Chattanooga is a great town, perfect for a race like this. The swim is fast and calm, the bike is challenging, but fast, and the run is tough, but runners get tons of support. I can't recommend this race enough!
