In the middle of a record-breaking mid-Atlantic heat wave, with a heat index of 103* today at Eagleman 70.3 in Cambridge, MD, Nancy made the wise decision not to attempt the run, after being ill on the bike ride.

Very good call, Nancy! You did very well in your "unofficial Aqua Velo," and acted wisely in calling it a day under those conditions.

Still, it had to be disappointing.... the training for a half-Ironman is no small thing.

But you did everything right.

Thanks! If I had actually gotten much training done for it I might have been tempted to continue, but it's all good...

I agree. Having vomited several times on the bike, continuing onto the run could have proved quite dangerous under those conditions. Not worth it!

Nancy has always been one smart lady.
( that too "girly"?)

Nancy is one smart broad.
