Angela wins St. Croix Ironman 70.3

She also beats the course record

Angela Naeth is on fire: The Punk Rock Racing athlete won her second half-ironman of 2012 on Sunday, and even beat the course record despite rainy weather that resulted in wet roads.

As if that's not enough, she accomplished this despite riding the last six miles on a flat tire.

Angela headed into the St. Croix Ironman in good shape, after winning Ironman Panama 70.3 in February, placing second in Abu Dhabi in March, winning the Leadman 125 in April and having one last pre-race race at St. Anthony's half-ironman two weeks ago.

On Sunday in St. Croix, Angela was fourth out of the water, finishing the 1.2-mile swim in 29:47. Then she headed out on the bike, moving into first place (despite that flat tire) and finishing the 56 miles in 2:33:08. Last year, Angela set the bike course record; this year, she beat that record by 39 seconds. But Angela wasn't done. She then ran 13.1 miles in 1:25:17, for a pace of 6:31 per mile.

A year ago, Angela was known for placing second in half-ironman races. On Sunday, her 4:28:12 win was more than five minutes faster than the second-place finisher, it beat the previous course record by a full minute and it was her third win in the last nine months. In other words, Angela is still racing against the best, but now the best are all chasing her. Congratulations, Angela!
