I also had the good fortune of qualifying for the Ironman 70.3 world championships which took place in Chattanooga, Tennessee. It was very humbling to be surrounded by some of the fastest triathletes in the world. Although I was soundly schooled by the competition, it was a wonderful race experience. Starting with an up-current swim in the Tennessee River, the bike course then took us into Georgia and back, finishing on a beautiful run course along and across the great Tennessee river. All with 4500 athletes from over 40 countries. Unforgettable!
