I posted last night that she was 6th Women Pro overall. Nope actually she was 5th!!! Yay!
I first met Lindsey at the Oliver Half Iron in 2006. It was her first race as a rookie Pro and she won in course record time. I think that race Shawn had double the pictures of Linsey on the camera than he had of me! He really liked her Timex race suit... Ha! If I remember correctly, there were a lot of shots of her from behind. He said it was because she was so fast, he couldn't get the camera focused fast enough to get her coming at him! (ya right!) "We" have followed her rising triathlon career ever since!
It was so exciting to see her come across the finish in top 5! I love it when the race commentators are caught off guard with athletes that are not well known. That is what I love about the sport. "Anything is Possible" Ironman racing is so unpredictable. Every race is so different. It is a new journey every time, and that is what is so addicting about wanting to go back and do it again, and again.
