Otstot '04 Thirty-First At Arizona Ironman
After suffering a major ankel sprain this summer, Adam (pictured above on the left) had 11 weeks to ready himself for one of the most grueling physical challenges. He ended up finishing Ironman Arizona in a time of 9hours 12minutes and 45seconds. A new PR and a time good enough for 2nd in his age group (25-29yrs old), 31st overall, and the 6th amateur. By virtue of his age group position, he has qualified (for the second time) and accepted (for the first time) a chance to race next Fall in the Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii. He was unable to go this past time, because he had already decided to race the World Duathlon Championships (of which he won his age group - in other words he is a world champion). His splits were: 53:31 for the 2.4 mile swim, 4:59:55 for the 112 mile bike, and 3:11:29 for the 26.2 mile run.
