Katie Paulson Ultraman Update: Day 1

Ultraman 2008 Day 1 is done and we find the 'BoomerNation's first-time contestant, Katie Paulson, right in the thick of things. Yesterday she completed the 6.2 mile swim in 4:37:33, and the 90 mile, first of two bike legs, in 6:32:20 for a total time of 11:29:53. That puts her current place at 26th out of 38 starting athletes. Five athletes of the original list have dropped out during the first day.

Today, day two, is a 171.4-mile bike from Volcanoes, through Hilo, up a 3,000-foot hill to Waimea and the Parker Ranch, then up and over the spine of the 3,400-foot Kohalas and down to Hawi.

Let's everyone send her some bloggie props by leaving a comment below. I will forward them to her at the end of the day.


Stay tuned...
