Ironman Florida Congratulations

Just wanted to give a "Great Job" to my brother. He participated in the Ironman Florida this weekend. He finished in 13 hours, 1 minute & 12 seconds. One of his goals was to be on the run segment before the person in first place finished (8 hours, 7 minutes & 59 seconds). He was able to do that. This is the first full triathlon that he has done. He is 42 years old and has been training since last November.

It was a great weekend because my parents came out from CA and my sister came down from NC. So everyone was here in Panama City for the triathlon plus my birthday.

I am so proud of him. He finished 4 hours, 53 minutes & 13 seconds after the winner. We met so many great people before and during the race. We ended up cheering for about 6 other people that we met. My brother was impressed with how well everything was organized.

Also a Congrats to all the participants, whether they finished officially or unofficially. It takes alot of hard work to do a triathlon. It was total of 140.6 miles (2.4 swim, 112 bike & 26.2 run)
I Believe in Magic...
