2008 Ford Ironman World Championship

The Ironman World Championship took place on Saturday, October 11 in Kona, Hawaii. I love to watch this every year, even though they don't televise it until December or so. I just get the updates online. It is SO inspirational to me! Congrats to the 2008 world champions: Craig Alexander and Chrissie Wellington! Also, B.J. Christenson, an employee from SL Running Company competed and finished in 9:37:19! And to think he helped me buy my shoes!

Craig Alexander on the marathon leg, finished 1st place in 8:17:45

Chrissie Wellington: 1st place female (second year in a row!) 9:06:23
