98 - IRONMAN© Lake Placid - John MacDonald

In this episode of the Pursuit of the Perfect Race, I talk with my friend John MacDonald about his recent race at IRONMAN© Lake Placid where he mentally set out for a great day, and things shifted on race day that allowed him to truly respect his first race time at Lake Placid.  It was a truly remarkable day for John and he shares tips and tricks about how he made on the spot changes when race day throws you curve balls.  Thanks for coming on the show John and I look forward to having you back on the show again after Boston!
