This post is for those of you who are going to be in Lake Placid volunteering/cheering OR those of you who have a vested interest in the race but are at home. Regardless of whether you are going to be in Lake Placid or at your computer, this is how you can find me in a crowd of 3000 athletes or track me online!
(I say this assuming that at least SOMEONE will want to do either of these things!). I know I have some "creepy blog friends" (as Mary likes to say) that are going to be up in Lake Placid volunteering! I can't guarantee that I will get to meet any of you but I would like to if possible! (And I really don't think any of you are creepy). :)
If you are at home on your computer and you want to track me, tune into IronmanLIVE (or I think you can just go to www.ironman.com) and punch in my bib # 2352. By doing this, you will be able to see my split times as I progress through the race. I think they also may stream the race live, however this normally concentrates on the pro field.
If you are in Lake Placid (either volunteering or spectating) I will give you some pointers on how to find me!
I am wearing my triathlon team's kit. It is a kelly green top with navy blue shorts. There will be a number of us wearing this on the course, but only 2 girls. The other girl is significantly taller than me (I am really short) and will probably be ahead of me! On the bike, I ride a black and gray Cervelo with pink handlebar tape. On the run I will wear a white hat.
This is what I look like!
