Ironman CDA: Arrival and Prep Day

Arrived in Coeur d’Alene today. Race is on Sunday and the town is swarming with Tri Geeks, just the way I like it!

The number of people riding race wheels, aero helmets and skin-suits on an otherwise normal Thursday afternoon was staggering. I wasn’t one of those people (though I will be tomorrow!). Since I got into town late, I did a very short swim (15 minutes or so) and got dinner and some groceries. Tomorrow I’ll do a brief ride to check things out and then relax the rest of the day.

Here are some random pics.

Great natural food store really close to the race site.
My home for the race weekend! A great RV trailer 1/2 mile from the race start.

Sunshine over the beach. This is where will start the race...imagine 2500 athletes starting at once. It will be NUTS!
The holding pen.....
A kids race today, I think they did a 1/2 mile and all got a medal. Everyone was SOOOO happy.
