Mission Accomplished!

I'm borrowing this line from someone...but I can't remember who. Just a quick post from the hotel to let you know that I won the Amateur race in Texas today with a time of 4:09:24 I think. Click on this link for results. http://ironman.com/events/ironman70.3/longhorn70.3?show=tracker. There was a good size pro field and I think I beat 7 of the professional athlete times. I'll post more tomorrow or Tuesday when we get home but thanks for reading. It's been a long year since beginning on November 3rd with this goal in mind. I knew it would be tough so I was pretty excited to qualify to race professionally. I paid a price...for the last year and today in the race. I'm SUPER sore. DREAM BIG!
