Eagleman 70.3

Last weekend was Eagleman 70.3 in Cambridge, Maryland which was to be a tune up race for IRONMAN Cork in Ireland 2 weeks later. I had raced at Eagleman 2 years ago in a string of 70.3’s that pretty much all resulted in me falling apart in the second half of the run. This was … More Eagleman 70.3
