When you hear the phrase – “You will get stung”, you know you are in for a long day. Unfortunately that’s what greeted the athletes at yesterday’s Miami 70.3. Large swarms of jellyfish invaded the waters of Miami and while athletes were given the option of just doing a Bike – Run most chose to stick it out and go all 70.3 miles.
The men’s pro race was won by Michael Raelert who came back from a 5 minute deficit at T2 to catch up to Andrew Starykowicz (who rode a blistering 1:56:11 bike split and second overall) to take the win. On the women’s side Sarah Haskins led from start to finish to take the win (Leanda Cave took second).
