I have been an endurance runner for years, and have run a qualifying time for an automatic entry into the Chicago Marathon. Then 2 years ago I bought my first serious road bike and I fell in love with cycling too! This past year my coach suggested I try a Half Ironman. Sounded great! Except I was a bit terrified of water and could not swim. In November 2021, at 54 years of age, I had my first swim lesson, and in September 2022 I did my first Triathlon/Half Ironman in Madison, WI and conquered the swim portion under the cut off time. And yes! I already have my sights set on improving my times and doing many more!! And of course, my fuel through all of the training and the Half Ironman itself has been Infinit. No need for the aid stations, especially on the bike portion. Infinit was all the fuel and hydration I needed!
