Joanna Zeiger Takes 2nd at IMAZ

Boulder’s Joanna Zeiger led out of the water and off the bike at the Ford Ironman Arizona, but the day came down to the run. And on tax day, she was forced to slowly pay back her effort, hoping the gap would be enough.

Behind her, a methodical Heather Gollnick nipped away at the lead. After 139 miles of hard racing from the front by Zeiger, the Floridian took control when it counted, moving into the lead with just over one mile left and took her fourth career Ironman victory, in 9:36:40, as Zeiger crossed second, 49 seconds later.
