The sherpa part and coaching part went pretty well overall despite my racer's GI issues from excessive salt water ingestion during the swim. In addition to my support role, I was also fortunate enough to volunteer as a draft marshal thanx to Chloe .
After my hoo-haa recovered the torturous 112 mile motorcycle ride, I quickly transitioned from race official to cheerleader.....busting out the pom-poms, cow bell, and hydration beverages.
Congrats everyone who finished you first iron distance race! You deserve it! Thank you for keeping us inspired! And especially to my hubby... who not only completed his first Ironman... but raised $1,748 for the Haitian orphanage Hands and Feet Project.
And as a sherpa and coach, I would have to say that this guy has a little too much energy left over? Wouldn't you agree?
