Half Ironman

I did it I have officially signed up and paid for my first Half Ironman… It is a total of 70.3 Miles, I am feeling a little nervous at this point. But not turning back now. I am in…
Here are the details.

The Swim- 1.2 mile saltwater swim, in protected Offats Bayou. No big surf here! The swim will begin at Moody Gardens’ beautiful white sand Palm Beach, and finish next to the majestic Colonel Paddlewheel boat, with approximately 100 participants per wave.

The Bike – 56 mile spectacular, scenic one loop course along the Gulf Coast of Texas. Head out of Moody Gardens and hammer along the Seawall and hug the Texas coastline, heading south to the end of Galveston Island.

The Run – 13.1 mile Run is a 2 loop FLAT course meandering through Moody Gardens, it’s tropical gardens and towering glass pyramids, along Offat’s Bayou and Palm Beach, and by the Lone Star Flight Museum. There will aid stations every mile stocked with Gatorade Endurance Formula, Water, Clif Bars, Clif Shot Energy Gels, fruit, defizzed cola, Salt and Vinegar potato chips, pretzels, and just about anything else you could dream of.
