STEELHEAD 70.3, August 2, 2008

Just a quick report until later: 70.3 in 7:03. What a coincidence??

Swim cancelled due to high winds and high waves. My bike mph (on my computer): 15.1--total surprise.

We had to run 2.65, bike 54.5, run 13.1, so officially not a half Ironman, just the distance.

Wow...lots more running than one would have wanted to do (at least that I would have wanted to do!)
over 15 mph on the bike is not bad lady! I think it must have been crazy windy if they cancelled the swim!
Congratulations!

Good job! I'm sorry you weren't able to do the whole tri, but if they cancelled the swim, it must not have been safe and that's what matters.

Sounds like a great race report is coming. Congratulations on what appears to be a hard effort, especially on the bike in windy conditions.

Glad you made it through and in such a good time! I'm sure you are a little upset about missing the swim, but with your upbeat attitude, you'll be ready for the next one!!!

Great JOB Vickie, I was thinking of you ALL day and kept saying to Anne, whom you'll meet in T.O.....
"wonder how Vickie's doing"

way to go and can hardly wait to read the full report...rest up!

Congratulations Vickie!!
I am still trying to imagine all that training.. and then having the swim canceled right before it started.
You do so well with whatever happens!!
The outer banks pictures look great. Hot doesn't sound so good.. but beach sure does.
