Jeanni Seymour takes her 4th victory of the season, this time on local turf at Ironman 70.3 Boulder.
Jeanni tactfully took on a fast Boulder field which including the likes of Alicia Kaye, Kelly Williamson, and Lesley Smith. Holding off to make her move on the run, Jeanni was never sitting outside of the top 4 all day.
Consistency payed off, and with enough in her legs to put together a 1:25:07 half marathon, Jeanni crossed the line first, over 3 minutes ahead of runner up, Lesley Smith.
After skipping last year, Jeanni has her eyes set on the 70.3 World Championships in Chattanooga next month. With all of her recent success, it's clear she will be in the fight for a podium spot.
Justin Metzler followed up his first professional victory at Challenge Iceland with a solid 4th place finish in Boulder. Battling for third with Ben Hoffman for much of the run, Hoffman was just a little too much for Justin to handle.
Sam Long finished his day in 11th place, still struggling to stay with the leaders out of the water but rallying hard on the bike and run.
