    Jackson's race-best bike (5:08:32)--8 minutes over the next fastest, Kim Schwabenbauer, put her in a great position today. Both woman are quick runners, too. #IMCDA

    Potts at mile 16

    Potts still leads at mile 18. Millward 18:3 back. Wurtele 19 min back. #IMCDA

    Ferreira looking strong and running her way up

    Potts is at mile 20 with a 20 minute lead over Millward. Sounds safe to us... #IMCDA
    Wurtele also 20 minutes back in 3rd, Kilshaw in 4th 21:00 back, Delsaut in 5th 26:00, Barrett in 6th 27:40 back, Gomes in 7th 28:29 back, Twelsik in 8th 30 min back. #IMCDA
    We're about 30 minutes from the pro finish of the 13th annual #IMCDA! Excited to be here for the next 5 years, too, and with a new 70.3 as well!

    Stevens looking smooth through mile 11

    At mile 18, Delsaut in 5th. Kilshaw still with the lead on him. But Delsaut looking way stronger. Likely can close the gap over the last 10 miles.

    Schwabenbaeur in 3rd looking strong

    Potts is at mile 23! He can taste the finish line (and we bet it's salty). #IMCDA

    Go to your home, athletes. (Name the movie reference...)

    Hardest workers in the bunch.

    Potts with less than 2 to victory!

    Potts facts: 5 ironman victories under his belt including 2 here, 3 in Lake Placid and one in Cozumel. #IMCDA
    Potts swam a 50:30 (3rd out of water) and biked a 4:33. The crowd is about to welcome this defending champion home! #IMCDA

    Heather Jackson looking solid and comfortable in the lead with ten miles to go.

    Jackson is at mile 17 with a 10 minute lead. Her first IRONMAN title is so close she can smell it... #IMCDA
    The men's record was set here in 2013 by Ben Hoffman, in 8:17. #IMCDA

    Potts FTW!

    Kilsa has passed Weurtele and moved into third at mile 23.
    Potts: "I pushed hard when I was feeling bad and I pushed hard when I was feeling good." #IMCDA

    Callum Millward in second with 2 miles to go, with 2 minutes up on third.

    How hot is it out there? The IRONMAN Live iPhone has informed us it will not continue to work until it cools down. In the fridge now and hoping it peps up for women's finsih...#IMCDA
    Potts' marathon matched the day: Pretty smokin' hot. (2:53:25) #IMCDA

    Stephen Kilshaw in third with 35 seconds over Trevor Wurtele with less than 2 miles to go.

    Brandon and Delsaut battling for 5th less than 2 miles from the finish.

    Great race for Stephen Kilshaw. He's opening it up in the final miles

    Looks like Kilshaw will cruise his way into a podium spot.
    Callum Milward in 2nd with an 8:41 #IMCDA
    In 3rd and 4th a pair of Canucks: Stephen Kilshaw in 8:43:04, Trevor Wurtele in 8:46:38 #IMCDA
    Run facts from #IMCDA: Potts - 2:53:25, Kilshaw - 3:00:06, Millward 3:00:36, Wurtele - 3:04:41. Only Potts ran a sub-3 hours.
    Jackson is maintaining a steady, low-7's pace and has just passed mile 21. She's a popular triathlete and knowing her, will be elated, emotional, and downright speechless at the finish line. #IMCDA
    Women's order behind HJ is still Stevens, Schwabenbauer, Ferreira, Blakemore. #IMCDA

    Heather Jackson at mile 24. What heat?

    Jackson just passed mile 24 and has a sweet 15 minute lead. #IMCDA

    Amanda Stevens running in 2nd, roughly 14 minutes back.

    According to Heather's partner at the finish line, this race will be huge for her. She was meant to be here last year but due to injury couldn't race. She's also learned to race in the heat, so this has been the ultimate test and confidence builder. #IMCDA
