IronRoMan

Congratulations to Roman Mica - Two Time Ironman

Roman Mica completed his second Ironman distance triathlon in Klagenfurt, Austria. He finished with the following times:

Swim - 1h 10m 24s (I consider that blazing fast)

Bike - 6h 48m 28s (while slower than TDF pace, this is also fast for us mortals)

Run - 5:34:29 (a pace many marathoners would be proud of, without the swim and bike beforehand)

His total time, with transitions, was 13:45:49, a very admirable time, and quite a showing over his first attempt. If you are interested in the stories about that race, please click the banner on the right, and you can purchase his book "My Training Starts Tomorrow." I bought and read the book, and do recommend it. It has the same humor he shows on his blog, and you can read it in bed without annoying the spouse.

Congratulations, Roman, on an excellent showing. As Bolder would say, Roman truly represented on the course, today.
