Two Down, One to Go

Both George and Mike are off their bikes and on the run.

George around 3:00

Mike running well at 4:15

Both the male and female winners are finished, and we're seeing some guys with finisher medals walking around. We're also seeing people without finisher medals lying on benches...and one woman in the back of an ambulance as the medics closed the doors.

I need tissues. To see people work so hard, give so much, and still not have breaks my heart. They are crazy, but I can't help but pull for them all to finish, for them all to have Mike Reilly call their names. It's just awful how that doesn't happen.

Let's hope and pray George and Mike have enough today. 26.2 more mile at a time.


  1. Praying for them both Susan. What an amazing accomplishment to all of the Iron Man participants. Thanks so much for keeping us up to date.

  2. We lifted them up in prayer at church this morning! Keep us posted :-)

  3. One step at a time...for all of them...thanks for the updates...

  4. Wow, watching the live feed of people finishing makes me kind of teary, and I don't even know any of them! But what a testament to human effort and discipline and striving. Kudos to them all!

  5. George Raihala, YOU ARE AN IRONMAN! I saw you finish on the live feed! Congrats! (You too, Susan! You are an Iron Wife!)


Thanks so much for taking time to comment!
