For the speed readers, the full report is below. For the rest of you this was my 21st Ironman and I went 9:29:xx, good enough for 36th overall…26th male…5th age grouper…and 2nd in the M40-44 age group. My swim was baaaad.

Day Four Recap: Easy (44) Like Sunday Morning, Except for the Up Part After three days of approximately 27,000 ft of gain, our minds and legs and lungs were calling out for something more “normal” — it took me several hours and much map-searching, but I was able to dial in this ride. After some […]
Day 3: Mast Gap Annex, Beech Mountain, Shulls Mill and even a Jagaround! After riding Mount Mitchell, it’s hard to find something that folks will still find epic. The answer? Shorten the ride to the suffering but work even harder! Beech Mountain is a three mile climb that averages around 9%. It so happened that […]
Day Two: Linville Falls to Mt Mitchell [aka 11,000+ ft Climing Day!] At the start of Day Two, I promised NO GRAVEL. However I said nothing about climbs, wind, flying icicles, sleet or 11,000 feet of suffering. All were had on this epic day of cycling. This is about as close to West Coast riding […]
