The Day Before

Tomorrow, rather, very early tomorrow morning, 2:30am, I'll be getting up to head out to the first ever Ironman Texas 2011!
It's going to be a LOOOOONG day:

2:30am wakeup
3:15am meet up with the guys and head to The Woodlands.
4:15am volunteer meeting.
5:00am to 6:30am opens athlete entrance and begins body marking.
7:00am race begins.
8:00am first Elite racers should be coming out of the water, wetsuit strippers in place. I think we work that station until 10:00am.

After that, I dunno, lunch, nap, nap, hang out, nap.

5pm until? Work the finish line. There are different departments of that. The earliest Elite athletes will start crossing the finish line around 3pm. I just hope to see the two friends I know that are racing cross the finish line. That will probably be no earlier than 7pm.

Long day, but it's going to be incredible.
