Florida Ironman 70.3 - 2014

Another 'semi-satisfying' race.  It was not what I expected, but I beat my last course time by 11 minutes (including a worse run), so I should be pretty happy.  It was hot and it was hilly.  They changed the run course so there was an unexpected hill at the beginning.  The three loop run course is nice though so you get a lot of spectator interaction.  I am putting in my nutrition and how I felt at the bottom so I can refer to it for future races.

The swim was a wetsuit swim and it was not as bad as it was two years ago.  There were not as many weeds in the water and the course seemed less crowded, but maybe this was because I went off course a lot.  Both of my transitions were super fast and I was happy with them.  Most people were just hanging around in the way of others trying to speed through.  I didn't do the rubber band trick and I don't think I will even try in the future since I am not losing time in transition from it.

The bike was super windy.  What was even…
