Professional men & women start at 6:50a.m. CST and the age groupers start at 7:00a.m. Competitors have until midnight (17 hours!) to cross the finish line at the State Capitol in Madison, WI. Last year, this race took me 9 hours and 38 minutes and we'll see how long it takes this year. It's looking to be a blustery day (17mph winds) with mild temperatures (high around 75 degrees) so it could be a fast or slow day depending on the wind direction!

I spent quality time with my homestay, Joann, and we cooked some "must have" race week meals. 2 days out- always a big steak and a salad- pack in the Iron for Ironman.
