Ironman Cozumel

Claire Lunardoni just completed IM Cozumel in Mexico this past weekend. She fought hard, over coming stomach issues on the run to an ironman PR by 25 minutes or so in tougher conditions!
We are all very proud of Claire! she worked very hard and smarter than she has before in her training to complete a long journey to this race.

After a very solid swim, coming out of the water 10th in here age group, she quickly got to work on bike, her strength. Almost to quick! She left T1 with a little extra... gear, from the swim. After sorting that out she stayed steady and by the end of the bike leg had moved to 4th!
At 10k into the run the heat was on. literally and figuratively. The temps soared and although her pace was right on, just over 9 minute/mile pace, her stomach fought back.
Claire stayed calm and did what she does best... gets tough.
while to keep pace she stuck it out finishing 25 minutes or so faster than her best IM ever in much tougher conditions. way to go Claire!

Pic to come!!
