Sponsor-A-Mile: 70.3 World Championships in St. George, Utah

 



It is almost time for the BIG ONE!  The race that I have been fundraising for and working towards since November of last year: the IRONMAN 70.3 World Championships in St. George, Utah!  As an Ironman Foundation Ambassador, all of my Ironman brand races have me RACING FOR MORE, but this one is the pinnacle.  I am proud to be representing IMF and all of the good that can come from their initiatives.  With that in mind, I am asking you to sponsor a mile during this race.  

For each of my IRONMAN races this year, I have taken your inspiration and printed it on tattoo paper to put on my arms and legs so that I can see it while I am riding and running.  When the going gets tough, these notes remind me that I am doing the race for more than myself!  



Will you consider sponsoring a mile to help MAKE AN IMPACT and leave a quote or advice to inspire me during 70.3 St. George on October 28, 2022?

Here is how:
1.  Choose the mile(s) you'd like to sponsor below.
 

Add your name and any note (a quote, mantra, memory) that you want me to have for that mile right in this spreadsheet.  I will be printing this list on tattoo paper on October 22nd to put on my arms and legs for me to be able to see them during my race.  
*if you have technical difficulties editing the spreadsheet, just comment below or email me and I will add it for you.

2.  Head to https://ironmanfoundation.donordrive.com/participant/Erin-Byrge to donate the corresponding amount.  (If you sponsor Run Mile 10 - it is $10)

3. Watch for updates on October 28th and after to see how your inspiration got me to the finish line!


Things to know about the 2022 IRONMAN 70.3 St. George Course and when I will need the MOST inspiration:


Swim:



There is only 1 mile to sponsor on the swim, make sure you give me an easy-to-repeat mantra ;-)  I often sing to myself when I'm swimming - so a song will work, too!  

Bike:




Miles 41-47 will be the most difficult climb, so these are great miles to sponsor!!  The is also a bit of a climb (short and snappy) about mile 8.  I will need lots of inspiration for both.  For the 9 miles after the main climb, it is downhill and fast... which scares me to death!!!  Feel free to give me messages to keep my mind off the speed for those miles!!

Run: 




You already know that the run will be my weakness of the day and it will likely be very hot on this run.  Thankfully they have altered the route a bit so that there is not a ton of elevation gain, but as you can see from the elevation map, we start uphill and then go back to that hill for a 2nd loop.  Miles 1-3 and 6-9 will be the toughest for me.  I have run the bridge a ton, but that does not compare to up for 3 miles at a time...  yikes!

IM70.3 Puerto Rico Race Report

 " Why did you choose this race?"  Before we could talk about race and nutrition plans, Coach Sami asked me that question.  I 100% chose it for the destination and the vacation Mark and I would have after the race in San Juan.  What a great perspective to tuck away for race day! Mark and I got to San Juan on Thursday afternoon and checked into our VRBO on Condado beach.  I chose this location because of the view... and its proximity to swim start.  It was a bit of a hike to get to the athlete's village and transition, but still doable which made everything easier than trying to deal with the traffic in San Juan!   Friday and Saturday, I got checked-in.  Rode my bike a couple of times on the super SAFE green paths found near transition.  I swam with several other athletes and ran in the middle of the day to TRY to acclimate a little to the heat and humidity.  I met tons of Team Zoot and Ironman Foundation Teammates.  I stuck to my nutrition plan with pasta on Friday and Wa
