Race Report: Ironman Wisconsin
"This was my third ironman race. I did Lake Placid in 2002 and Canada in 2003. My Canada time was 30 minutes faster than my Lake Placid time and my training (plus a new and very fast bike) for Wisconsin, aka, IM MOO, indicated that another sizeable time improvement would occur. In the end, I didn't have the race I had hoped for, planned on, or that my training times predicted, and I suffered more physical pain than I had ever experienced. But I also had an incredibly satisfying race and learned something about myself in the process."
