A Long Day in the Desert...Updated..Again...

Ironman Arizona Coverage -

Due to immensely frustrating site problems we we unable to post pictures and much of the content. We'll update on Tuesday.

4:00 PM - It's a 9:04:49 debut for Palmer! Devon finished 17th overall. Congrats Devon on turning in the all-time fastest rookie IM effort by a Minnesotan! Very, very cool!

3:39 PM - Hey, where's Devon? We'll try to find him and get back to you.

3:30 PM - Chrissie's 11th IM win here today took the "Official," i.e. M-dot, world record down from 8:47:26 (Sandra Wallenhorst at Ironman Austria in 2008) to 8:36:13. T'was Wellington's fifth sub-9 and lowered Arizona's women's CR by 33:06. Chrissie finished 8th overall on this damp Sonoran day.

3:00 PM - Germany's Timo Bracht has just rewritten the men's CR at Ironman Arizona. His sizzling 8:07:16 dispassionately gouged more than six minutes out of Jordan Rapp's prior race best. Bracht placed 6th at Kona last month.

2:23 PM - Two Minnesotans are in the amateur women's Top 10 after the first two legs. Jenny Wilcox is in 8th place; Julie Hull is in 2nd just 4 SECONDS behind amateur leader Karleen Dirmantas of Phoenix. Only eight pros are currently ahead of Hull and Dirmantas. How cool is that! Wilcox, a strong runner, was 10 minutes behind Hull when she got off the bike. Both Minnesota girls are on PR pace. Julie's prior best in 10:32:12, set at Ironman Florida in 2008. Jenny's PB is an 11:12 (Wisconsin '09).
