Elapsed time 5hours 11mins

Ironman Mont Tremblant training is going well.  Almost below 180 lbs.  I'm strong on the bike, my swim is coming back, and well my run is "okay".  Of course I'd like to have more fitness hay in the proverbial training barn, but if you told me 6 months ago I'd have the fitness I have right now... I'd take it.  

I'll end up at 12 hours this week, and I'm going to shoot for the same next week, followed by 10 hours, and then 2 week sharp taper.  

The best is, I truly think if I Race Smart, I have a good chance to eek out a small PR.  Having 'blown up' in every Ironman marathon means that if I can just hold it together for a sub 4:30 marathon, I could still end up with a PR.
