Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.  I am one happy camper!

Pretty quiet where I am.  Most of those who travel are gone, and even those who are around seem bored out of their minds.  Funny.

I asked the question after Kona and while watching IM Florida.  Did I have the fitness to have done IMFL two weeks after Kona?

The answer was a resounding YES!  So guess what–I signed up for IM Arizona too!  The great thing about this race is that I can drive to it.  Awesome!

Now I really have to train!  I got about 11 months before the double hits.  Items on the agenda–swim faster and keep improving on the bike.

Wish me luck!

Maybe another 8 newly minted ironmen came to be this past Sunday.  About 11 teammates finished IMAZ with great times 9:40-14:10, with the mean around 12:00 or so.  So for the BT group, possibly about 30 out of 150 have made the IM distance.  It’s becoming top-heavy.

I’m hoping at least two of our teammates are going to Kona.  It will make the decision to go back in 2009 as support a little easier.

I wasn’t there, but was watching the video feed from Nashville.  I think I saw everyone cross.  Cool!
