I am usually asked to write a race report after an amazing race about how hard I worked and how the stars aligned for a PR. Yes, there are anecdotal obstacles that always occur before, during, and after the race that makes victory even sweeter. Today we are taking a different route. Ironman Louisville was supposed to be a culmination of a two-year arc from Ironman Cozumel 11:04. Publicly I was happy with a 36-minute PR. Privately, I knew I was a lot faster than the chip time.
