I felt a momentary transfer of energy! It happened when Andy Potts touched my toes rounding his second passing of the turn buoy on his way to winning the 34th running of Ironman Canada (2nd oldest IM only to Kona). His swim split was 47 mins; mine was 2 hours with a 1hr 17 min respectable average. USA Andy Potts crossed the finish a total of 8 hrs 20 mins with Portugal's Pedro Gomes came in at 8:27 and Canada's Trevor Wurtele at 8:30. The Women Pros were all consolidating at Lake Placid to provide a deeper field.
