Apparently, that training $hit works.

Here's my results so far, compared to last year's IMLoo

CordyLane: 16:13
IMLoo: 17:19
(1 hour, 6 minutes faster)

CordyLane: 1869/1943 total, 97/137 of Women 40-44
IMLoo: Official last finisher. Of the entire thing.

CordyLane: 1:40
IMLoo: 1:31
(9 minutes slower)

CordyLane: 7:38
(Almost 4 minutes faster)

CordyLane: 8:09
IMLoo: 8:55
(46 minutes faster)

CordyLane: 10:31
IMLoo: 20:08
(almost 10 minutes faster - it saves time not to sit down and cry in transition, I've found.)

Difficult, difficult race. Very comparable to Kentucky.

Thanks SO MUCH for all the well wishes.

I was imagining each time I rode or ran over a timing mat that all your positive energy was represented in that little beeping noise!

More tomorrow...
after I sleep some more. The only thing keeping me awake right now is that an equally tired Baboo occasionally hitting rumble strips on the highway.



  1. Way to go, you did an awesome job!

  2. Totally inspiring...go 'head, girl! :)

  3. You didn't have to run the marathon at IMLOO or CORDYLANE??? ;)

    Congrats on a stellar finish and PR!

  4. I am in awe of you. I could only aspire to such an accomplishment. Way to go!

  5. Congratulations! Very, very nice accomplishment.

  6. You deserve a rest for such a fab PR!

  7. I followed you online!! I was telling everyone I knew that my blogger pal was doing an ironman!! A few of my friends were there looking for your number to cheer you on!!

    Congrats to you.


  8. Congrats! You did great! That's an amazing improvement over last year! WOO HOOO!

  9. I knew you could do it!

    Congrats Misty!! You rock!!

  10. You *so* deserve that sleep!

  11. WooooooHOOOOOOOOO!

    I checked the IM page first thing to see how you did!! Awesome job! I can't wait to hear the details!

    Thanks for giving race numbers for everyone- I had fun tracking everyone all day!

  12. I was tracking you yesterday, congrats on finishing and doing it so strongly! You are a real inspiration.

  13. I am in awe and I will say it over and over that I really think somehow you guys are really superheroes (with capes and masks and cool tool belts) because you both have super powers.
    We tracked you all day yesterday and jumped up and down and high fived each other every time a bloggy peeps stats were updated. We super high fived each other when you and Mr. You had your stats updated. You both are awesome and someday we have a chance to meet and talk because I need to get some of your mental toughness. Great job.
    Now for the new tattoo?

  14. Reading your blog always makes me wish I had as many entertaining ways of documenting my life as you do. I've been reading your blog for quite a while, but finally feel the need to leave you a message. A hundred thousand CONGRATULATIONS for an awesome performance!!!!

  15. Awesome, awesome, awesome!!! I am so proud of you, and so inspired by you. I could totally relate to what you were saying on Saturday about the "voices" - way to beat them dead!

    You go girl!

  16. If you had been listening REALLY hard you would have heard the world laughing at me as I did a cartwheel whenever you crossed a checkpoint.
    We did a 53 mile bike in your honor Sunday morning, talked about you guys the whole way.
    AWESOME, awesome, awesome job! So happy for you. And looky at all the people finishing behind you this time. You ROCKED!

  17. Woohoo!! Great job out there...I was waiting for my Coach to come in and frantically searching the results to make sure you had made it in off the bike because I knew you'd kick the moon's butt after that. :) Congrats on yet another notch in that IM belt!

  18. Way more than you "just getting lucky"!! You conquered!
    HUgs, debi :)

  19. Congratulations!!! So happy for you and can't wait for the details . . . rest up and revel in this accomplishment!

  20. Same day finish, you rock girl!

  21. Congrats!! Awesome job--did you beat the moon??

  22. Great job on the ironman and for taking an hour off your time! That is really impressive!!!

  25. Congratulations! Well, worth staying up past my bedtime to see you finish.
