Mark Allen tried for six years to win Ironman, but always fell short succumbing to everything from flat tires, internal bleeding and fierce competition. But then in 1989 one of the greatest races in Ironman history unfolded. Mark Allen and Dave Scott battled side by side for nearly eight hours. Finally on the last uphill of the marathon, Mark broke away from Dave and went on to win his first of six Ironman titles. Mark’s margin of victory was a mere 58-seconds, a very small difference on a very long day.
Coming this fall, MarkAllenOnline will be posting 12 videos on YouTube with practical tips to help you gain your personal 58-second victories on your races. One 58-second video will be posted each day for twelve days starting on Monday September 27, with the final one going up the day before the 2010 Ironman World Championships in Hawaii.
