Tim O’Donnell on his Ironman debut at Ironman Texas:
“I was excited for my first Ironman. I’ve always been a workhorse. I had been doing ITU racing for a long time and I’m just not that thoroughbred type of breed. I knew Ironman is where I would hopefully make my mark in this sport and hopefully make a career out of it. I went into Ironman Texas with a lot of high expectations and a lot of pressure on myself. I learned a lot. I had a great race. Unfortunately, this guy over here (Eneko Llanos) beat me by about 90 seconds. He’s a veteran and he put some moves on me that only a veteran can do. We’ll have a chance for a little rematch and hopefully I have taken those lessons to heart and can play some cards of my own.”
