What a day!!!!!

Full race report to follow later in the week; but the cliff notes version, great swim, awesome bike except for an insulin mistake at mile 60 that I had to recover from and a run that I was able to compete in for the entire 26.2 after I fought off a nasty low where my blood sugar dropped 90 points in a 2 mile span and then sky rocketed 220 points in the next 2 miles.  All in all couldn't be happier, 12:42 was a bit slower than what I was dreaming of but in the end I was able to compete the entire day.  Great course, great day, lots of fun!  Talk to you all again after a few days of eating unhealthy and drinking some beers!

GREAT JOB Ed!!! Really amazing time! And we all know that not all IM courses are created equal! You set a goal, work toward it, adapted with the obstacles, and continued without giving up or quitting. YOU ARE AN IRONMAN (x 2 or 3 I think!) Looking forward to your race report!!!

Great job Ed. I was watching the live results and figured that something with the BG levels hit you. Amazing fortitude to push through the challenges.
