Adirondack Daily Enterprise reports that two minutes after midnight, as Sunday night became Monday morning, “The Voice of Ironman” Mike Reilly began his final thank yous.

After a few final Ironman Lake Placid competitors finished their 140.6-mile triathlon journey in the moments before and after what’s regarded as Ironman’s “Midnight Hour,” the music was turned off.

Those who were in the process of leaving ran back to the stands to catch a glimpse of the final competitor to cross the finish line was Michele Stryeski of Bristol.

Adirondack Daily Enterprise says Stryeski made the final turn of her 140.6-mile journey, putting one foot in front of the other atop the red carpet that is the Ironman Lake Placid home stretch, onlookers in the crowd began slamming their orange noise-makers again. Others smacked a beat in unison against the fence. Another hoisted an inflatable unicorn in the air as Stryeski passed, her eyes on the finish line.

Ironman operates a global portfolio of events that includes the Ironman Triathlon Series, the Ironman 70.3,  Triathlon Series, 5150, Triathlon Series, and Iron Girl, six of nine International Triathlon Union World Triathlon Series races, road cycling events including the UCI Velothon Majors Series, mountain bike races, premier marathons and other multisport races.
