Ironman 70.3: Antwerp, Belgium
Congratulations to Ironman 70.3 winners Bart Aernouts (1st place), Marino Vanhoenacker (2nd place), and Dirk Bockel (3rd place). These champions swam 1.9 km (1.2 miles), bicycled 90 km (55.9 miles), and ran 21.1 km (13.1 miles).
It was inspiring to watch the competitors battle each other, and more importantly themselves. The Grote Markt of Antwerp, Belgium was the perfect venue for the finish line, shown below. You can see Bart Aernouts just before he crossed the finish line in 3 hours and 43 minutes.
The iPhone 3G photograph is a little grainy, but my memories of this time are sharp and vivid.
