But first, tomorrow is IronMan St. George and a few of our fellow bloggers are going to be out there giving it the good fight. So best of luck to Mike Russell (@ 26.2 is my Cooldown), Bob and his buddy Arnie (@OneHourIronman), and Fatty and his wife Lisa (@ Fat Cyclist). Good luck guys and I can't wait to read the Race Reports!
I mentioned early that I won a Zipp 440 Front Carbon Wheel on Ebay. It came today and here are the pics:
Very excited. Quite the steal for around $100! Going to take it to the LBS to get the tubulars put in and then I am going to order a rear disc cover from Wheelbuilder.com and place on my rear trainer wheel.
Here are pics from last weekends race:
Moody Gardens - Race Site
What OWS would have looked like if it had actually happened!
The Gulf and you can see why the swim was cancelled!
Early morning transition area.
Me leaving my "special place".
Starting the run.
Apparently, getting ready to take out a small child.
Coming down the finishing chute.
These next pics are all from the LoneStar Ironman 70.3 the next day.
Moody Gardens Run Course .. great location!
Much calmer Gulf on Sunday!
Overall winner Terenzo Bozzone - 3:49:06 (Super Fastie)
For the guys:
Super cool cowboy hat finishers medal ... Gotta love Texas!
I hope everyone has a great weekend. I have a 50 mile bike ride tomorrow and a 12 mile run on Sunday. Sort of nice to not have a race or be in a taper!
Thanks for Reading,
