    Factoid: Joe Skipper has spent a month here in town swim training with Tim Floyd at Magnolia Masters, so he knows the area well. #IMTX
    Bevan Docherty and Kelly Williamson took this race last year. It has since become one of our regional championships. The next stop on the championship circuit is IRONMAN Brazil.
    Hanson, Skipworth, and Plese are running 9+ mins back of Skipper now through 1.5 miles of the run. #IMTX
    Looking at Joe Skipper's power file, his peak 1 hour power was 330 watts.
    Skipper is through mile 4 of the run. #IMTX
