Naperville Triathlon 2023

I completed my 7th running of the Naperville Sprint Triathlon this weekend. It was a nice way to follow up the 70.3 Ironman I did earlier this year. Going from 5.5 hours to just over 1 hour makes for a fun time. The weather was also really cool which helped make it even more enjoyable. It seemed like there were more people than in 2021 and like always there was a lot of great energy. In past years I usually only knew one or two people but this year there were some fellow F3 friends that did it with me. For some of them, it was their first time which always makes me remember my first race all the way back in 2009!

Ironman Des Moines 70.3

Last weekend I crossed the finish line again at my second 1/2 Ironman in Des Moines. We lucked out because the weather turned out awesome. There was a chance of rain but it was dry and 70F degrees. The great weather and a bit easier course helped me cut almost 30 minutes off my last Ironman in Maddison.¬† I’m extremely happy with the results and glad to be finished so I can relax for the rest of the summer.
