Jon coming out of the swim in white
Jon and I did the Oliver Half Ironman this weekend as part of our preperation for the Penticton Ironman at the end of August. It was an overcast day in Oliver--great racing weather. The event was a 2 km swim, 93 km ride, and a 21 km run. Jon finished with splits of swim 37.47, bike 2:42:38 and run 1:33:43 for a total time of 4:59:50. I had splits of swim 39:09, bike 2:47:46 and run 1:28:43 for a total time of 5:05:58. (Including transition time) Highlights were Jon finishing 78th overall and me finishing 20th overall in run split in a field of 1000.
