Katie Paulson Ultraman Update: Day 2

Katie's progress in a word: stupendous!

She completed the Stage II 171.4-mile bike leg climbing 6,400 feet in a time of 10:03:19. After traveling around the southern and eastern side of Hawaii she made it to the northern island town of Hawi in 25th place overall and the third place woman. The trek took her through the tropical and, no doubt, the hilliest terrain of the island. Her total time thorough Stages I & II is 21:33:12.

Today she runs. And run, she will. Starting in the famed turn-around town, she will beat feet 52.5 miles on the hot, black highway that is the bike course of the Ironman World Championships.

I have passed along all of the comments left by y'all and will see that she gets them all. So, give it up 'BoomerNation and cheer her on to the finish!

Stay tuned...
