To my surprise, last October, I qualified for the Ironman 70.3 International Championships in South Africa. Not wanting to embarrass myself I decided I would benefit from altitude training. So I came to Santa Fe. The SOB’s were recommended to me at several bike shops and I’m glad I joined.

Many thanks for allowing me into your company.   It has been a great ride. My thanks to the Group A folks who took it upon themselves to shepherd me along new roads. Thanks to Bob, Joe and Adrian for the emails and texts.   And thanks to all of you for putting up this guy in his aero outfit, showing off.   (Not really intended but I bet more than one of you thought that. If that’s the case, my apologies.)   The brief chats on the road were delightful.   Thank you for making this a wonderful experience.

If you would like to follow me during the race, you will be up late. It starts at 7am South Africa time on Sunday September 2nd. That’s 11pm Saturday night Santa Fe time.

Cheer me on. My goal is to break 6 hours. Real athletes are a lot faster, so realistically if I come in the top 20 of my age group; that will be a personal victory.

Thanks again. Stay safe. And hopefully someday I may ride up beside you again.
