So.... here we go with the results of ONE of the premier Ironman 70.3 races for many ONE athletes : our beloved Ironman 70.3 Oceanside !!! ❤️❤️❤️ Many of our Triathletes competed, but some were, unfortunately, kept away due to injuries. Heal well and heal quick, guys ! ❤️ It was a challenging day for many, due to the open-ocean swim ( and chop ; I heard they pulled a lot of people out of the water ) and some strong head winds on the bike. But let’s get down to sheer numbers : Here we go : Cameron Comerford, 4:40:18, 9th AG ( Best of luck at the World Championship !! Nice !😁) Chuck Bana, 5:43:25 Dave Goedecke, 5:38:34, 26th AG Dave Miller, 5:44:20 David Guenthardt, 4:35:45, 3rd AG!

We made it to Oceanside....so beautiful! Did short workouts with Sophie Philippe Chevrier to check few things and keep nerves calm....Kids are having a blast, they all raced Ironkids...according to them of course they came in number ONE! 😍 the ONE Elite team is well represented, with Cameron Comerford, Matt Duke and the two of us racing tomorrow. Now a good dinner and then some rest before the big day. Good luck to all ONE athletes and Friends...have a good race and enjoy the course. See you out there....!!!
Ok...the race is over...what a day! Big waves 🌊 in the Ocean (😊), fairly strong wind 💨 on the bike (definitely a day for strong legs and Watts...), and a run that is NOT flat. That being said, the course is beautiful and the crowd was super supportive. Thanks to all the friends out there supporting the ONE Elite Team! The Elite team did very well, with Matt Duke and Cameron Comerford crashing the course with personal PRs and respectively a 4th and 9th placements in their AG. Our Queen 🦸♀️😉 Sophie accomplished her mission with a solid 1st place in her AG and 2nd AG overall. Good race for me as well...didn’t have enough legs for those hills...😜, we’ll do better at IM 70.3 SG early May. Congratulations to all ONE athletes and Friends who raced and finished the race today...epic! And a special thanks to Kristen Suddarth and Brian of Justwetsuit.com for equipping Sophie and I with excellent wetsuits. We are now heading to the awards ceremony...more to come later tonight. Ciao Philippe
