“The entire time, I knew I had PRed the swim, the bike by a huge margin, and at some point I realized I could run down a sub 5 marathon. I’m embarrassed to say I teared up half a dozen times thinking I was about to beat my 14:19 finish from 18 years ago. And every time I got emotional, all the pain from the jelly fish stings and the cramps in my legs just evaporated. I was just so happy the entire second half of the marathon – The second half monkey I guess forgot to visit me.
And the entire time, I’m thinking, Alyssa Morrison, I am forever grateful to you.” ~Proud Ironman Dad with a huge PR and an incredibly proud family
