I'm thinking Jared is going sub-10 hours. I'll go so far as to say that Jared will finish in 9 hours and 55 minutes, if he's able to get his nutrition right. This is his first full Ironman so who knows what he's capable of. What will slow Jared down is that he's too strong. He's got too much upper body muscle that he's got to carry and feed all day. There are some reports that Jared may be a less than efficient swimmer. He may feel compelled to makeup any swim deficit too soon and blow his overall race. I hope not.
Chad is gonna finish in under 11 hours. I'm guessing 10 hours and 25 minutes. Chad's even performance between all three segments should boost his confidence. He just missed the 11 hour mark in 2011. I think he's probably better prepared this year.
So, with the Ironman Florida estimates out of the way, lets get back to our PTCto Atlanta ride.
This ride was much more enjoyable. No rain - No crashes!
