From Cozumel - And Mexico - With Love: Hundreds Ready For IM Texas

     Over two hundred and fifty Ironman athletes representing Mexico will be on hand Saturday, May 21 for the inaugural Memorial Hermann Ironman Texas.
     They will make up nine percent of the current 2,793-participant field.
     Somewhat surprisingly, Americans were still the most populous of the second annual Ironman Cozumel field last November when 969 were on the start list and just 494 representing Mexico.
     And over 100 who were in the water to start Ironman Cozumel -- 94 finishers and nine DNFs -- have plans to navigate Lake Woodlands and the Waterway in just under four months.
     Thirty-six of those 94 finishers were from Mexico.
     One person not on the participant list that is currently posted at the official Memorial Hermann Ironman Texas website, but will be racing, is The Woodlands' T.J. Fry, who finished Ironman Cozumel in 10:12:55.
     Five other hometown residents - set for May's event - made the trip and finished in Cozumel.  They included Jesse Robinson, Raul Luzardo, Ana Lemus, Sheri OKeefe and Amy Barr.
     Ironman Cozumel had a higher than normal attrition rate, but a slightly normal DNF rate.
     Of the 2,326 that were registered, 560 never made it to the start line - 24.1%.
     And of the 1,766 who did, 1,643 finished - a 93% finishing rate.

     Forty-two Memorial Hermann Ironman Texas hopefuls got their 2011 multisports season started on Sunday at the annual Frost Your Fanny Duathlon held at Bear Creek Park in far west Houston.

     The duathlon featured a 3-mile run, 15-mile, 3-loop bike and a 2-mile run.

15 Ironman Texas Hopefuls Finish USA Fit Marathon and Half Marathon

     Fifteen (15) Memorial Hermann Ironman Texas hopefuls - nine men and six women - competed at Sunday's USA Fit Marathon and Half Marathon in Sugar Land, Texas under cool, wet and, at times, blustery conditions.
     Seven finished the marathon, including Sugar Land's Adrian Arroyos, 37, and Maggie Kattan, 39, who ran together as Kattan finished 11th overall among all women. The duo will be two of the 12 who will be looking for their first Ironman finish in May.
     Fulshear's Cory Gholson, 38, posted a sub 4-hour marathon finish of 3:57:24 as he prepares for his first Ironman finish since Ironman Florida in 2009 (12:43:05).
     Eight completed the half marathon with Sugar Land's Rob Botard, 40, leading all Ironman Texas registrants with a seventh-place overall time of 1:29:30. He'll be working from a 5:54 performance last summer at Ironman 70.3 Buffalo Springs Lake.
     Porter's Jeffrey Irvin, 35, was 15th overall in 1:34:09.
     Katy's Dave Molthen, 46, and Pearland's Robin Campbell, 47, were the other half marathon finishers on Sunday who have previous Ironman finishes. Molthen last finished the 2009 Ironman Coeur d'Alene in 12:10:31 - his third career finish - while Campbell pushed up against the 11-hour windows with a 12:03:03 time at the 2009 Ironman Florida.

First 10 Pros Identified Coming to IM Texas - The US Pro Ironman Championship?

     Eight of the 2,793 triathletes on the latest participant list for this May's inaugural Memorial Hermann Ironman Texas have been identified as professional triathletes.
     The World Triathlon Corporation (WTC), owner of the Ironman brand, updated the ironmantexas.com website on Monday, January 10.
     Five women and three men were on the list and an additional pair through Internet searches have been identified as coming to The Woodlands this spring.
     Boulder, Colorado and Austin, Texas' Michael Lovato and Portugal's Pedro Gomes have listed Ironman Texas on their 2011 schedules and Lovato went as far as to comment on his blog that it is one of first half "of the season" priorities.

     The five women were:
     +  Belgium's Tine Deckers, who won Ironman France last summer in 9:21:29 and was third at Ironman South Africa last January in 9:29:58,
     +  Montana's Linsey Corbin, who is competing this weekend at Ironman 70.3 Pucon in Chile,
     +  The Netherlands' Mirjam Weerd, who finished third at Ironman Wisconsin last September,
     +  Japan's Emi Shiono, who has has been to Kona the last six years,
     +  Switzerland's Sarah Schuetz, who finished in 10:34:51 at Ironman Lanzarote last May.

     The three men included:
     +  New Zealand's Luke McKenzie, a 5-time Ironman champion whose last win was at Ironman China in March '10 in 8:41:15,
     +  France's Romain Guillaume, who finished fifth at Ironman France in 8:58:56 and second in 8:49:52 at Ironman Wisconsin last year,
     +  Germany's Daniel Schmoll, who was 8th at Ironman Regensburg in Germany last summer in 8:49:34.

     The biggest surprise came, though, from McKenzie's schedule on his website (see image below) as he identified what has been widely rumored, but not officially announced - that the inaugural Memorial Hermann Ironman Texas would be the United States Pro Ironman Championship.


      In December of last year, it was announced that the Memorial Hermann Ironman Texas 70.3, to be held in Galveston in early April, would once again be the site of the U.S. Pro 70.3 Championship.

Austin's Shelden Finishes 8th at Lake Wanaka Half (New Zealand)

Memorial Hermann Ironman Texas competitor Brian Shelden, 40, of Austin, who went 9:35:54 at Kona and earned a trip for '11 at November's Ironman Florida in 9:21:23, finished 8th earlier today - January 15, 2011 - in New Zealand at the Lake Wanaka Half (part of the Challenge race series) in 4:46:30.

The Evergreen State Will Send An Experienced Group to Ironman Texas

Seven of the 10 Washington state residents who will make their way to The Woodlands for the inaugural Memorial Hermann Ironman Texas have at least one Ironman finish to their credit  -- and three had finishes last year.
Bellevue’s Shannon Day, 44, and Vancouver’s Jonathan Hough, 30, both appeared to have entered the longer distances in the sport last year with solid debuts at Ironman 70.3 Lake Stevens with times of 6:00:34 and 6:44:18, respectively.
Speaking of solid, that’s what Sumner’s Sarah Lynch has been – in triathlons, running and roller derby.
While the 33-year-old will be looking to push past the Olympic distance from last September, the former speed skater has included roller derby in recent years to stay in shape as a member of the Dockyard Derby Dames.  (Please see the recent article.)
Lynch, though, began her preparation for this year’s Ironman Texas – her first -- with a steady 4:23:02 Skagit Falls Marathon last September.
While Lynch will be making her debut, the two candidates for the best showing from Washington state will be Ridgefield’s Darin Shields, 43, and Vancouver’s Joshua Monda, 29.
A three-time Ironman finisher, Shields earned a trip to the Ford Ironman World Championship in October – where he posted an 11:06:06 finish - with a personal best 9:53:46 at Subaru Ironman Canada just seven short weeks before.
Meanwhile, Monda’s only Ironman finish came last June at Ford Ironman Coeur d’Alene where he meted out a 10:10:29 time that was sandwiched in the middle of half irons of 4:38:44 and 4:43:44 at Wildflower and Silverman, respectively. 
A finisher of 11 career half iron distance events, he competed at the 2009 Foster Grant Ironman 70.3 World Championship in Clearwater, Florida where he had a personal best time of 4:07:22.
Kirkland’s Jerold Gardner, 60, was the only other Washington state competitor coming to Texas that finished an Ironman last year.
Gardner added Ironman St. George in May (15:50:51) to finishes at Florida (2003), Coeur d’Alene (2005) and Lake Placid (2007).
Mill Creek’s Steven Duniho, 45, and Vancouver’s David Fanning, 49, had 2009 finishes at Canada and Florida, respectively, of 11:40:13 and 12:07:01.  Fanning, who has three Ironman finishes, sports a personal best of 11:39:08 at Ironman Arizona in 2006.
Duniho went 5:18 at Ironman 70.3 Lake Stevens in 2008.
Joining Lynch in the women’s age groups are Vancouver’s Candace McCammon, 23, and Spokane’s Christiana Kenny.
McCammon will be one of just four women competing in the 18-24 age group.  She finished Ironman Coeur d’Alene in 2009 in 16:31:02.
A trail runner the last couple of years, Kenny is planning on coming full circle to Ironman.
The 44-year-old finished Vineman in 2007 in 16:16:04 and followed up with a pair of 70.3’s in 2008 before registering three 50-kilometer trail runs in 2009 and a trail marathon last year.

Beehive State To Bring Five To Ironman Texas

            The state of Utah is sending five Ironman competitors to the inaugural Memorial Hermann Ironman Texas in The Woodlands, Texas on Saturday, May 21 – and all but one of them had their taste of the first ever Ironman St. George this past May.
            The fifth, Holladay’s Stan Hansen, a 40-year-old banker, showed on the original participation list but was a “do not start” for the 2010 event.
            Two of the four – Draper’s Shawn Talbott and Murray’s Joe Larsen -- have competed in a long-distance endurance event in the Lone Star state.  Both have 100-mile finishes at the Rocky Raccoon Trail Run, which is held annually in February at Huntsville State Park, approximately 35 miles north of the Ironman Texas starting line.
            Larsen, a trail runner-turned Ironman athlete, clocked a 28-hour finish at Rocky Raccoon in 2007 – one of his two career 100-milers, while Talbott finished in 23:00:36 just last year.
            Talbott, 43, has eight career Ironman finishes according to realendurance.com and his showing at Ironman St. George last May was indicative of how many experienced Ironman athletes were challenged by the course and the conditions.
            He went 13:48:08 at Ironman St. George then came back six months later and posted a personal best effort at Ironman Florida with a time of 11:15:08.
            After two 100-milers, five 100-kilometer and eight 50-mile finishes since 2005, Larsen turned his sights to triathlons.
            The 61-year-old posted efforts of 6:42:24 at the Rohto Ironman 70.3 California in April before returning to the Beehive State for a 16:04:18 finish at St. George.
            Kulaniakea Fisher, 36, of Cedar Hills, will be looking to keep his Ironman-a-year streak alive after a 16:15:26 finish at Ironman Arizona in November 2009 and a 16:26:54 showing last May at Ironman St. George.
            With a fairly common name of Genaro Fernandez, it is hard to tell which one is coming to Texas in May – looking at both realendurance.com and athlinks.com
            What we do know is that the one that has Utah attached to his results finished Vineman in 2009 before recording 12:28:20 and 13:01:54 finishes last year at St. George and Arizona, respectively.
            It is believed though that Fernandez, 31, might have just been a step off of his career bests, which include 14 career Ironmans and three appearances at the Ford Ironman World Championship.
            Hansen appears to have finished an Olympic triathlon in St. George in 2009, according to athlinks.com.

20 Ironman Texas Hopefuls Complete Walt Disney World Marathon's Goofy Challenge

     Twenty athletes this past weekend called themselves "Goofy" for running the Goofy Challenge - a half marathon on Saturday and a marathon on Sunday - as part of the Walt Disney World Marathon in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.
     But they all hope to be able to add the term "Ironman" to their lexicon for 2011 as they are registered for the inaugural Memorial Hermann Ironman Texas, to be held in The Woodlands, Texas on Saturday, May 21.
     Eleven of the 20 already have an Ironman finish to their credit.  Another six have at least a half iron distance finish in their triathlon past while three -- all from Texas -- are hoping that Cinderella will leave her glass slipper in transition for them.
     The fastest female finisher this weekend -- Erin Ruyle of Georgetown, Texas -- will be looking to make a vast improvement on her debut Ironman time of 12 hours, 35 minutes and 49 seconds in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho last June.
     Ruyle, 32, ran the half marathon on Saturday in 1:29:58 and the marathon the next day in 3:12:32 for a combined time of 4:43:30 -- eight minutes and 13 seconds ahead of New Orleans, Louisiana's Brittany Van Nielen.
     The top two men's finishers - Ottawa, Canada's Milko Rivera and Kenner, Louisiana's Chuck Compton - posted combined times of 5:19:51 and 5:29:56, respectively.
     Rivera, 39, has two career Ironman finishes, but the last one came at the 2007 Ironman Wisconsin in a time of 12:11:08, while Compton, 27, was a busy athlete last season as he posted a 14:31:19 Ironman Louisville time along with three 70.3's that were better than five hours and 48 minutes.
     Glendale, Arizona's Edward Bernal likely would have had the fourth fastest combined time, but he took it easy on Saturday with a 2:47:27 half marathon.
     However, Bernal, 48, was right on the money with a marathon time of 3:43:23 that was right in line with his 3:40:18 at Walt Disney World last year and followed by a 3:30:46 Boston Qualifier at the P.F. Chang's Rock 'N' Roll Marathon in Phoenix.  He is also the owner of 18 Ironman finishes with two in 2010 alone.  His 14:05:16 finish at this year's Ironman Arizona was his best in four years.
     Floridians Nancy Griff, 46, of Lantana, and Michael Melton, 35, of Orlando both will bring Ironman finishes in 2010 to Texas.  Griff, who has completed four Ironmans, went 14:12:58 last November at Ironman Florida - the place where she set her personal best in 2009 (13:44:07).  Melton, meanwhile, finished Ironman St. George last May and then recorded a personal best at Ironman Wisconsin in 14:37:05.
     The best marathon of the 20 - besides Ruyle - belonged to Royal Oak, Michigan's Eric Eder, but it was his half marathon time of 3:31:02 that would have thrown everyone off.  The 39-year-old must have stopped to get pictures taken with every Disney character available.  However, when Sunday rolled around, Eder ran down a time of 3:26:49.
     It was no fluke.  Eder, who finished Ironman Coeur d'Alene last June in 13:59:15 and the Pikes Peak Marathon in 7:34:11, had run the Boston Marathon in April 2009 with a time of 3:15:20.
     Washington, D.C.'s Jason Abernathy, 36, was the only Goofy Challenge finisher that is headed to Ironman Texas to have competed at Kona in 2010.  He finished the Ironman World Championship course in 14 hours and seven minutes -- and just two months after doing the Pikes Peak Ascent in 4:34:45.
     Carrollton, Texas' Jason Maloy has three Ironman finishes of the remaining Goofy Challenge finishers while Weylin Sing of Windermere, Florida and San Antonio bike shop owner Jimmy Britton have one each of their own.
