  • nycrunningmamaThere are no words to describe the experience yesterday - one of the hardest, most rewarding and emotional days of my life. Finished in 13:04. Quick recap: swim was tougher than I thought it would be (was swum over and hit nonstop) {1:31}. Bike was tough but amazing and faster than i expected. Paced myself perfectly on first loop and almost even split {6:44}. Run was great until mile 10 when my stomach started cramping. Couldn't eat anything for remainder of race. Managed to drink warm chicken broth which helped the indescribable nausea. Hardest 16 miles of my life. But the smile never left my face {4:26}. Had to spend 90 min in med tent post-race getting fluids and watched by dr ( was shaky and dizzy when I crossed finish line). I am so incredibly content and happy this morning. Thank you for all of your continued love and support on my journey to 140.6!! #ironman #imlp
