Yesterday I raced in my 7th [Blackwater] Eagleman half ironman [70.3!] race in Cambridge Maryland. It was another hot and windy affair on the Delmarva peninsula, but the day couldn't have gone better as I raced to a 1st place age group finish, 2nd overall amateur, and arguably the most important distinction, another Kona qualification.
It was a great day pushing my limits amongst friends and competitors, and in a striking natural setting. Eagleman is one of my all-time favorite races and likely will continue to be for as long as I am a triathlete. I just wanted to check in and share the good news in blogland, and mention that a proper race report will follow shortly. Good night!
