Philthy become an Ironman!

While the MTB season has finished up and it cyclocross season here in the Midwest, our members of the Florida division of Cow Town are still enjoying some warm weather and finishing up on their Triathlon season with the Ironman Florida. 

 2700 triathletes participated Saturday's Ironman Florida race.  Participants enjoyed a 2.4 mile swim in the emerald Gulf of Mexico waters.  Next up was a flat and fast 112 mile bike ride where the absence of hills forces a consistent pacing and offers no time to recover.   The final leg is a 26.2 mile run which included the scenic St. Andrew's State Park.

Congratulations to Cow Town own Phil (aka Philthy) Carter who overcame a tore cartilage in his knee to finish the Florida Ironman in 13:33.  This is Philthy's second Ironman distance event. .
