Ironman North Carolina 70.3 Review

Wilmington, NC
October 22, 2016
Finish Time: 5:47:57
AG- 5th

Probably the toughest conditions I have faced due in part to the wind, but I finally made the podium of an Ironman race at my last race in the 25-29 age group and man was it bittersweet.

There were many things that made is weekend challenging. From the check-in hours to getting to each transition location to the updates to the bike course due to the catastrophic flooding (we were informed the week of it would be 50 miles for both distances). But a lot of it felt redeemed with my finish even though I wasn't thrilled with my bike time but I will still give my full on report.

Zamst Product Review

If you are looking for your next knee, ankle, wrist brace, socks or compression sleeves, then you should check out Zamst.

Zamst was created to reinforce and protect athletes of the world by allowing them to push harder than the body can endure.

Zamst has a diverse line of products, but what caught my attention from the start was how comfortable they are to use. Many runners suffer from IT band issues, myself included, and I was able to test out the RK-1 knee brace that was made for those with IT band syndrome. While wearing it, I didn’t feel any pain, and I felt secure during my workout. Throughout all of my exercises, I had my typical range of motion.

TriBarbie's Advice for Running in the Cold

The temperature is starting to drop which means we will soon be running in the cold. All runners continue running throughout the winter, including myself, but there comes a certain point and temperature where I take my workouts inside.
