Harry Finishes Florida Ironman in 10:58

On Saturday, November 6, 2010 2,500 athletes took part in the 12th edition of Ford Ironman Florida in Panama City Beach. One of those athletes was our very own Harry Slutter. Here's Harry's race story in his own words:
"Florida was fun I went 10:58 The conditions were good 15 to 20 wind but a cool start @ 38 Brrr. There is nothing more enjoyable then swimming with 2500 friends, It's a Full Contact Sport. I had a great Bike 21.4 mph and was thinking of 10:30 time. Then came the run had a 8:45 pace for the first 7 and Stomach woes so from mile 8 to 11 things were tough, got it back together around 11 and ran the rest of the away."

Way to go Harry!
