Race Report: Ironman St. George 70.3

May 10, 2017 by  
Filed under Races

Wow! That was a tough day. The training leading up to the event was pretty solid but I couldn’t  seem to avoid consuming water on the swim leaving me nauseated for the ride and limiting my ability to consume nutrition in the bike. I only seem to consume water in very specific conditions (in a race, when it’s hard to see and/or gets crowded), otherwise I have no problem in training.

The trouble is that I was only able to tolerate about 1/3 of my planned nutrition on the bike but ended up throwing that up at the beginning of the run. I felt better and tried to consume some fluids and as much solids as I could tolerate. I did start feeling better around mile 4 or 5 on the run so was able to pick up the pace for a while, then had to walk when a wave of nausea would hit so I could keep down my nutrition. Then I started experiencing some cramping towards the end of the run despite my attempts to get some nutrients & electrolytes back in me. I was so grateful to have company to run with and help me. I still had some major chafing on my neck and could really feel it burn on the run when the sweat hit it.  Ouch! 

The volunteers were also amazing. It was a bit windy and warm so I was so happy to have so many aide stations along the way, about a mile apart.  This race is challenging when you are feeling good so it’s even more difficult when you are sick and your body is shutting down but I pushed through. No way was I going to pull out. Despite my results I am so happy to be able to finish and participate in these events. This was an event I have had on my bucket list for a while. Sometimes you have to take the bad with the good.  Overall I was pleased to finish and will continue to search for ways to get through my challenges. Triathlon training is my favorite. Thank you to all my friends, family and sponsors support! You are so appreciated.

Wahoo! I am so excited to be participating in the Ironman St. George 70.3 event this weekend. I have wanted to do this race for quite sometime now and it finally worked out so I can. Hoping my shoulder holds up. It’s a hilly route and looks like we might have some heat and wind. Reminds me of Kona #hawaii #raceweek #swimbikerun #utahathlete
