Mary Beth Ellis is in good form, recording another Sub Nine performance at Ironman Texas on Saturday. The American swam 53:32, cycled 4:45:52 and then ran 3:11:09 for a 8:54:58. For most of the swim and bike, Ellis and Amy Marsh shadowed each other. Ellis broke away during the run. Caitlin Snow showed that she's running as well as ever, clocking a 2:51:46 marathon, which propelled her into second overall in 9:01.
