2011 Boise 70.3
So we had some friends talk us into doing the 2011 Boise 70.3 and it was a blast. Going down as one of the best events. We drove up Early Friday with the Tri and Run Couple to check in and get ready for the event. The city of Boise is very nice and very clean I was impressed with the set up of the race. The race started @ 12 and each age group had its own wave start mine happened to be last 12:45 pm :(. The water was 53 degrees but in some areas of the lake it had to be colder. I didn't have the best swim and my T1 was horrible. My bike was super fast (Compared to IMSG) and I passed a ton of people being that my wave went last. I had one of my best bike races. Nothing special about T2 just in and out. The run course was very nice and cool it runs along the river in town and is surrounded by trees. I felt slow because my legs killed which is pretty normal. Overall I was very happy with my performance I didn't get any training in because of how close it was to St. George Ironman. I wanted to race a 5:30 and I ended up doing it in 5:06 so I was very happy. Next year I am shooting for under 5 hrs. Thanks to the Anderson family they made the trip so much fun and thanks to my wife for being the best cheerleader.
