    'Tis the Season: Ironman Coeur d'Alene

    To disable ads, please log-in.

    When I went to Florida, I felt bad that I didn't catch people from TE that were probably IN THE SAME TENT I was in during transition. I have been incredibly busy at work over the last year and only been able to pop in here occasionally, but you ladies hold a special place in my triathlon heart. I wore my She Loves Hills bike jersey to the Hill Country Ride for AIDS in Austin (side note: HOT AND WINDY, like standing in front of a giant dryer) and it was admired by many, I wished I could have sent the good vibes back to each of you.

    Back on topic...

    I know Kacie's husband is also racing Ironman Coeur d'Alene (and he's fast, so he'll put my turtle self to shame!). If anyone else from TE is coming up (down, over), I would love to cheer you on, say hello, or at least know you're around in case you're, say, volunteering in transition and you could help put on my arm warmers/coolers/sunscreen/whatever!

    For those of you playing along at home, my # this year is 314. (Yep, pi! Also, that means next year I'll be back in the high #s.)

    <insert the final countdown>

    My friend's partner is racing and she's playing sherpa. He is trying to qualify for Kona, so I assume that makes him one of the fast ones. Unrelated to TE, though.

    Best of luck to you! We'll be cheering you on from Sunriver, OR!

    Thanks, all! It's getting pretty hard to ignore how close it is. It's like vacation-itis. Hopefully a good dessert at the end of this one, just like all good vacations.

    My twitter account is @colbinator, sometimes my husband tweets from my account during the day, since the splits are so distant I'll ask him to try to post updates.

    SUPER EXCITING!! Off to sleep! (Been in bed for a while, but not truly sleeping.)

    I just got home ... Colby's out of the water in 1:59. The site doesn't have bike splits listed, just a total bike time? Can that be right? Go Colby, ride ride ride!
