Butterfield then closed out with a Run time of 3:18.20 on a winding course through residential neighborhoods and the Boulder Creek Trail.
Butterfield said, “I’m still smiling from the Boulder Ironman, it was nice to feel that passion for doing a race just to do it. No other reason than deep down I do just love doing Triathlons, I hope and don’t think I’ll ever lose that.”
“It was also so exciting to see my cousin Scott McCalmon do his first IRONMAN and crush it in 10:22, You are an IRONMAN!,” concluded Butterfield.
