Nice Jen!

Different subject... has anyone figured out how "folks back home" will be able to track us during the race?

IronmanLive.com?  It's currently just redirecting to ironman.com.  And will that just be general race day coverage, or will it have cameras throughout the course?

Athlete Tracker?  Is that just a text update of splits?  Where can that be found?

GPS devices?  In Louisville, they had little GPS boxes I rented and wore all day... people could log in and see my location.

Thoughts?

I dont know about the GPS devices but there will be live coverage on race day.  Video will be mostly pro field and then the finish line.  There will be an athlete tracker for tracking you through specific parts of the race course but that is often delayed.  I think it would be cool for the GPS thing if it is small like a timing chip or a watch.

I now have a Xterra Velocity M Speed Suit size M Mens for sale.  I ordered one from Xterra and it was backordered and I did not know if it would make it in time for the race so I bought another one.  Let me know if anyone wants to buy it and I will bring it to Kona with me.  I just want to get my money back. Paid $150.00.

Made it to Kona with the whole family, our house is great!!!  Just 30 yards off of Alii Drive across the street from Whitesands Beach!!  Went for an hour run last night and saw a few pros and a ton of really fast AGers.  The electricity here is crazy!!!  I felt like I was running on clouds.  Going in for a swim and pick up the bike from TBT today!!
