Ironman Mooseman 70.3. VICTORY! and quick results

Gonna be quick:

Swim: 35:36
T1: 2:54
Bike: 3:07:16
T2: 2:41
Run: 1:50:03

Weather: Low 60's and RAIN. Rain = TORRENTIAL DOWNPOUR!!!!

The word of the day: SUCKAGE
Use it in a sentence: "Embrace the SUCKAGE."......(especially when going up hills and downhills in torrential downpours)

Totally shocked myself today and went WAAAAAY faster than I ever expected, especially on that run. I was 5 mins off of my stand alone half marathon PR!!!!

More details to come.

Timberman 70.3, you have been WARNED!


  1. The weather in NH this weekend sucked, but was actually decent running weather assuming you didn't get major blisters from running in wet shoes like I did. Congrats on your race!

  2. Good on you Jon - way to go!

    Running in the rain is okay - cycling on the other hand blows.

  3. Sweet! I checked out your numbers earlier and thought there were awesome!! Timberman doesn't stand a chance!!
    Sorry to hear about the weather!

  4. awesome race. as a former New Englander who has gotten soft with SoCal weather, I applaud your ability to adapt and push back.

  5. Great race! Apologies about the weather - I think that came from us Midwesterners :( We had a tornado warning in the middle of the nice with heavy rain and winds.

  6. Congrats on a great race in super tough conditions! Can't wait for the RR. Look out Timberman! (And I will see you there!)

    I was thinking of you and Regina today! I rode my planned ride because I knew you guys were toughing it out for 56 miles, so I figured I better get out there. Again, congrats on HTFU and sticking it out in this weather.

  7. Wow! Sounds like an amazing race despite the weather! Can't wait for the details!

  8. Awesome Jon! Looks like you slayed it ... can't wait to see the RR!

  9. I knew you would do well. Congrats! You were so ready and you knew the weather was probably gonna suck, so no surprises there for you. I'm looking forward to reading all the nitty gritty details in your RR.

  10. Hi little bro,
    Way to kick a little ass!! I will be waiting for the race report:)

  11. Woohoo! Congrats! You did awesome! I can't wait to read your race report! :)

  12. suckage... love it!

    Great job! Can't wait to read the race report. You tore it up!

  13. Dude! You tore it apart, that course was killer and the rain SUCKED!! you can blame me, since I seem to be racing in these torrential downpours, must have brought the weather with me. Let's trade war stories soon over beers!

  14. Congrats, impressive times is such elements!!
