Thanks everyone for being patient. I finally was able to get WiFi. Thanks also to Richard's i-phone.
The excitement here is very palpable (love to throw in a doctor word). Carrie had an awesome swim. The wind seems stronger than the forecasted 10mph so will see how she does on the first of three bike loops...We expect her to come by within the hour...cowbells and Maracas are ready.
Our set-up on the Shoreline is the best seat in the house..thanks Gilbert for the canopy tent. Amy, Thon, and I just finished a nice run along the waterfront (part of the marathon course). Beautiful day for viewing...a tad hot for Ironman-ing.
