Drive from outside of Portland today. Fast roads and a fast drive. Stopped at the airport in Spokane to pick up a smaller rental car and then onwards to Coeur d’Alene (CDA).
Checked in at the RV park and then immediately ran the 1.5 miles to pick up my race package. Got some swag and purchased some stuff.
Then a BBQ dinner at “home” before the mandatory athletes meeting. That was kind of lame. Hard to hear and didn’t really pick up much besides the fact that the lake is apparently 61F.
The sky opened after the meeting. Craziest thunderstorm I’ve seen in a long time.
Oh, my race number is 1262. Should be possible to track me here http://www.ironmanlive.com/tracking.php?race=coeurdalene&year=2012
Also, can you find my name on the t-shirt below?
