2000 Subaru Ironman Canada

The Santa Barbara Triathlon did not present enough of a challenge for Elizabeth Farnan, so she headed for the Great White North, specifically to Penticton, British Colombia for the 2000 Suburu Ironman Canada. Up at 4:20 a.m. (that alone is good reason to avoid these things), Elizabeth began to prepare for the largest single wave start in Ironman history. Around 7:00 a.m., off she went, never getting more than five strokes in a row before hitting someone, getting knocked in the head, or being kicked in the ribs. After the swim (1:25:29), the bike (7:04:49) was a difficult ride given the cold, windy weather, but her marathon (4:29:27) went reasonably well, and she finished with a smile and a time of 13:11:11.
