The short: Martin drove out to Idaho with Ron Hoyne to race IM Coeur d’Alène. All went as planned, with a hot and hilly 3:48 IM marathon. The swim was 63.5 F (brrr!) and most of the bike course was a string of 4-6%, 1-2 mile climbs. It was tough for everyone, and Martin finished 14/252 = top 5.5% in his age group, the best finish yet.
