Matt Russell wins Ironman Lake Placid

I know that a couple of years ago there was a TrainerRoad blog about pro Triathlete Matt Russell using TR in his goal of breaking 8 hours in an Ironman. He won Ironman Lake Placid today in 8:27 on a challenging course.

Is Matt Russell still using TrainerRoad? If so, he might be a good interview on the podcast.

I watched the live coverage today, and it was so great to see the emotion behind such a sentimental favorite and one heck of a journey.


Good for him. Nice to see him winning after that horrific accident in Kona…
