Utahns Excel in 2013 Ironman 70.3 St. George

Some lamented the fact the Ironman triathlon series dropped its fledging St. George race from a full 140.6 mile, Kona-qualifying event to a 70.3 race. Others celebrated the move as a chance to compete in the early-season race with proper training especially for those coming from colder-weather communities such as the Wasatch Front where finding training days from November to May is either expensive or really uncomfortable.
