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!

This was a training run for me, so I didn’t get out of the 10-min per mile zone. With many stops to chat and also take pictures, I came in at 4:24-4:26 I think.

This course is gnarly–very hilly. It is also very beautiful. Here is the post with the photos.

Met a fast runner from Greenville, NC. Her name is Carmen–she got second overall woman. Got a plush monkey for her efforts. Met Phil Minn, Chuck Engle, and Janice–well-known maniacs in these parts. Chuck wins races, while Janice dressed up like Dorothy in the past two HHFM marathons. Got a picture of Marathon Junkie and McLovin in the same shot. Also, got a starting and finishing shot of the famed Larry Macon! 92 marathons to-date this year. Also got to meet the zany RD Trent Rosenbloom.

Very well organized, and top-quality marathon. Only 200 slots, but well worth standing in line for it. I’ll see if I can do this again next year.

You can call it a forced vacation of sorts.  It’s cold up here, so I didn’t really want to leave San Diego.

It’s quite nice out here actually.  It reminds me of Pennsylvania and Delaware.  Plenty of antebellum homes and large estates.  Their buildings and roads also look like those in PA.  Pretty.  Didn’t do much looking around; I’ll save that for the R&R one in the future.

The “fun” run is tomorrow, so I’m just sitting out here mellowed out.  There is no speed thing for this, so absolutely no pressure.  I guess I have to make sure I get to the event on time.
