if you want to follow me during IRONMAN!!

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 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!


  1. I will be cyber-stalking all of you guys! You are going to KICK!

  2. I'll see ya take off on the swim with 2,999 of your closest friends, but I will miss you coming out of the water. :(....i'll be in the men's changing tent volunteering @ that point.

    I will hopefully cya as you fly by for your 2nd loop of the bike and then for the run @ various spots. Good luck!

  3. i'm glad that there are others who are also creepy blog friends - or blog lurkers - knowing that its not just me helps! :-)

    can't wait to track you live!

  4. I am one of those creepy followers who will be at IMLP cheering you on. I might even hand you a water! Like Jon, I will see you take off for the swim with your 2,999 closest friends, then I will be be-bopping around cheering folks on until my volunteer slot starts at Aid station #2 @4pm-8pm. I am short and kind of loud. But really funny, which is what people keep me around for.

    Best of luck - you are going to do awesome!

  5. Woot!! Can't wait!! Also wanted you to know, you won the Nuu-Muu giveaway on my blog!! Shoot me an email and I'll get the code to you!

    Have an amazing day tomorrow. Soak it all in and enjoy every minute.

  6. You did it! Amazing. Inspirational. Awesome.

  7. Congratulations Alexa! I just turned back into the Ironman Live site to see you cross the finish line!!! So cool!!! Congrats again!

  8. I just read your time from Caratunk's race report. NICE freakin' job! Especially for a first!!! dang;-)

  9. You are freaking awesome - I was joking about the stalking thing, I know it is crazy as hell there and really you were focused on other things like banging out a 12hr IM! Seriously, you had the fasted T2 time ever, like we saw you bike in, ran to the run out and there you were! I want details! You time was amazing!!


I love creepy blog stalker friends! Don't be afraid to leave me a comment!
