When signing up for Ironman 70.3 Silverman almost a year ago, I did not bother to look at the course. Oops! I didn’t realize what I was in for. When I finally did study the course, it was quickly clear why the Ironman 70.3 World Championships were held here several times. This was supposed to be a warm-up event for me as I prepare for Ironman Arizona (IMAZ). It was going to be an interesting weekend in southern Nevada.
