  1. I think you peed your pants and are shaking from excitement, because you forgot the "s" for pants.

    Calm down before you register, you don't want a miss-type there.

  2. Then you should have no problem peeing on the bike. That is so exciting Jeff! Looks like it's gonna be a hot one that late in May...but you are used to it.

  5. Damn! That is pretty frickin awesome. Major jealous to have an actual Ironman sanctioned event in your backyard.

    Don't lie to us, you had something to do with this didn't you?!

  7. Hi Jeff,
    This is great news! Wow, an Ironman right in your hood:) I wouldn't worry about the heat and humidity...you are used to it and I am sure will perform better than the poor athletes who don't deal with it like you do! Cheers to Friday's registration! Is Annie going to do it too?

  8. OMG!!! I didn't pee, I did something else in my pants.... just kidding (I'm too old)

    Actually, now I have to do 5 instead of 4 more continental USA IMs to hit them all.... another $550 WTC gets from me.....

  10. Very Cool...Before I consider this...what is the temp in Texas in May :)?

  11. good catch Patrick ... Annie was rushing me out the door for dinner!

    Bob, WTC upped it to $600 for this one?

    Matt- the wife is upset about Cozumel also, might have to do both (-;

    Julie - Annie says "hells no"

    James - check ur email (-:

    Jason - temp is usually between 85-96 with 60-70% humidity -- Brutal heat!

  12. Jeff, with the way you train, this will be a piece of cake. If the water's cold, peeing in your wetsuit should help.

  13. That's awesome! Do you get the option of riding a horse instead of a bike from the middle segment??? haha. Ok, that was my lame attempt at a Texas/cowboy joke. I'll shut up now.

    It looks like you are going to need that spreadsheet again as soon as you finish up your HIM training :)

  18. Is $600 entry standard for an IM? Sorry for the rookie question.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Luke - Usually $550 - $575. But I am guessing that the $600 cost will be the standard for 2011.

  20. Yay for you! Now go do some laundry!
