31st 35-39

Notes from Coach Jim Hallberg

With a stressful and less than confident last 70.3 and a less than ideal build up. I knew Nathan could have a great race if he just relaxed and had fun. WE removed any data and metrics from the goal and went strictly by feel. Nathan performed above his expectations and had a great race with one of his fastest off the bike runs. I knew it was there, sometimes we all race better with more fun and less personal expectation! Way to go!

This was David's first IM and first and only race of the year. When we first started training for this race, he was coming off of a foot injury where he couldn't run at all. David remained determined and consistent with his training throughout the entire process and even at one point during our buildup, he texted me to say that he was stressed out because he felt "too good." I've heard a variety of complaints from my athletes but this was definitely a first! It was a family affair during training and racing as his wife and kids provided aid stations along the course during training rides and his parents even came out for a training ride on the IMAZ course to be his vehicular escort during the portion that didn't have a shoulder to ride on. Technically Ironman is an individual sport but I think we all know that your family goes through this with you, and their amazing support, along with David's hard work, undoubtedly led to a speedy 11:23 first Ironman! Congrats David, it has been my absolute pleasure coaching you this year!

Laura had planned for her first Olympic of the "triathlon reboot era" in Sept '16, only to have those plans changed to aquabike due to plantar fasciitis and then scrapped altogether due to a canceled swim. Over the next 12 months, we focused on dramatic improvements in Laura's power on the bike and endurance on the run. We hit new records for both - several times - in training, which led to MISSION ACCOMPLISHED at the Lenoir City Oly.

We carefully selected his redemption race, worked for a while to find a training system that synced with his busy work and travel schedule, and once we did Mike nailed his training with laser focus on achieving his goal. All that hard work paid off yesterday at IM Maryland when Mike crossed that finish line and became an IRONMAN!

Then he worked and worked, learning HR zones and structured training, getting stronger in the pool and dramatically increasing his run endurance. At the Wasaga Beach Tri he swam a mile in 32 minutes, biked strong, and ran the entire 10k - totally ignoring my suggested walk breaks. ;) Way to go Steve!

Lisa Plunkett

Notes from Coach Dave Sheanin

A different kind of race for Lisa this time--just 2 weeks after IM Boulder, Lisa volunteered to guide with Athletes in Tandem--pulling Isaac in a raft on the swim and a trailer on the bike then pushing him in a stroller on the run. More fulfilling than any Ironman, said Lisa. Thanks for giving back and being a role model!


Dave Sheanin

Notes from Coach Dave Sheanin

I raced the Oly with Athletes in Tandem--towing and pushing Andrew the whole way. The climb up to Horsetooth took a little extra grit and we had an awesome moment at the finish line when Andrew was able to come out of the stroller and walk across. Good times giving back and sharing the feat. www.athletesintandem.org

Sam had a great race at the Mighty Montauk in NY Sunday - 12th overall and 2nd AG. This was a semi-Olympic distance - 1900yd swim / 20m bike / 10k run. Sam's been working his keyster off on one of my custom plans. He cries a little each day, tells me how hard it is, and then goes out and crushes the race on Sunday. Fastest bike split on this course by 3.5 minutes, and a run PR by 3 minutes. I'd say the tears and the pain are worth the result. Up next is NYC Tri for Sam. More tears in his future.

Coming up to altitude and racing IM is not an easy thing, but Julie made it look easy for about 9.5 hours. The amount of pain she can put herself through is off the hook - full on tears rolling down her cheeks from mile 19 to the finish. I wish more athletes could see what it takes to get to that level of racing. Even though she wasn't firing on all cylinders she punched her ticket to Hawaii again and will be on the start line in October. Great race young lady. You inspire a lot of people.

Notes from Coach Alison Freeman

Could not be more proud of Liz if she'd won the whole darn thing. Liz battled GI distress from about 35 miles into the bike through the end of the race, forcing herself to get down her water and nutrition even though it must have been the last thing she wanted to do. That distress slowed down her bike, forcing her to push to make the cutoff. She continued steady through most of the run, struggling to get in her gels, and at mile 20 was told that she had to speed it up if she wanted to finish the race. Even though she felt like passing out and/or vomiting, she pushed herself to run hard those final 6 miles and made it to the finish with seconds to spare. Liz, I am so thrilled to say that YOU ARE AN IRONMAN!!!!

An incredible first Ironman for Erin! She swam smart but then suffered muscle cramps in her quad for much of the bike. Instead of letting that derail her, she worked the problem and stayed positive and thankfully the cramp didn't effect her run. Erin ran steady, PR'd the marathon over her standalone time from 10+ yrs ago (!), and became and Ironman!!!

Kristine and I knew going in that the outcome of this race was uncertain. IM Boulder was a testing ground on her Road to Kona as an IMF athlete, and we learned a lot from her experience. There were distinct successes (the bike!) and indications of where we need to focus to complete the ultimate goal of a Kona finish. Kristine, I'm so impressed with how you've taken this experience in stride and am so excited to continue working with you as we build toward your Kona experience.

Bill has been suffering a nagging hip injury but we decided he would race anyway as a training day for IM FL. The strategy was to swim and bike hard then make a decision about the run in T2. His bike was solid averaging very good watts but two flats took a toll on his time. Bill decided to walk/run the marathon, enjoying the day and taking in the parts of the Ironman he doesn't get to see when he finishes in the front pack. Impressive mental skills today.
