Ironman Florida Pictures and Timelapse Video

Ironman Florida in Panama City Beach Saturday was unbelievable with a course record being shattered by an astonishing 13 minutes.  The winner, Tom Evans, completed the swim portion averaging over 3 mph in just over 48 minutes.  Averaging 26 mph on the bike, Evans started his run after only 4 hours and 18 minutes of riding.  That only leaves just over 3 hours to run the 26 mile marathon equaling a blazing average of 8 mph, FOR 26.2 MILES!

Dude.

I had the great pleasure of poking around the entire race camp and got quite a few great shots, which are below.  But, before you peep the cool pix, be sure to watch the timelapse I put together of the entire day’s activities. Be sure to comment what you think!
