    Tyler was excellent – he was in fourth place until the last few miles – I was glued to my computer during the stream, I wish it could have been broadcast on TV – he ran a good race and came across the line with the Bermuda flag – I’m sure his family was proud as I was to see him up there with the best. Next year could be that podium finish.

  9. Wow, wow, wow! An amazing finish – all of Bermuda is so proud of your accomplishments. Congratulations!
