Ironman Florida…done.

I’ll keep this simple and quick for now (the full story will start auto-posting tomorrow).

Technically a PR…but by a hair.  It was a rough day, but there were some very solid moments sprinkled in there…including that I’ve now successfully finished three Ironman’s.  More later on…gonna head out to watch the midnight finishers come in here in a few minutes.
