Yet another blog from some random dude training for Ironman and beyond


That is the time posted next to my name after Thursday night’s Saltair Time Trial race.

Let’s say that again: Fourteen minutes, Fifty Three seconds.

My previous best was 15:28.

My time at the previous Saltair was 16:32 and prompted a serious look at what I was doing wrong. It was also the last day I had a Diet Coke or carbonated beverage of any kind. Not sure if the lack of Diet Coke is to blame, but I sure like the time.

Beating a personal best by 35 seconds on such a short race is a major confidence booster.

Yay, me!

    Great job on the Salt Air TT Jared. I finished a distant 3rd behind you. I thought the winds were worse this week, so to set a PR by 35 seconds, was quite an accomplishment.

    Awesome. It seems like these always come when u least expect it. That’s close to my PB so you should be flyin now. Bet you the pain hurt less once you saw the time. I know that’s how it works for me. Sub 15 better than mediocre!
