The pros showed up and came to the head of the line, I looked back at the chute where there wear 1400 racers behind me. A pretty common expression on most faces, again lost in thought. Thinking ahead, not about right now. The music gradually changed…Continue

As I come into day 5 of the recovery cycle it is time to start typing out my feelings about Ironman St. George.  To start off, I didn’t have the training and preparation I’ve had for previous Ironman races.  My current work schedule has me averaging…Continue

For me, the swim was beautiful until the first turn. Then the waves took over. Last time I swam in waves like that was body surfing in the Mediterranean. I made it to the island, but a fellow in a boat said I would miss the cutoff, so I should get…Continue

I have recently bought a pair of compression calf tights and have yet to try them. I am not a rookie and know not to try new things for a race you haven't used in training but I can only see advantages here. Any thoughts would be appreciated.TimContinue

Debbie, even when the course went up Red Hills parkway and there were no street lights they had lights out....it was kinda peaceful weird feeling to be out on some of the stretches with just lighted glow sticks knowing others were there with me but not "really seeing them". The new course has street lights.


I always visit Veyo Pies when training. Their Banana Cream pie and the Strawberry Rhubarb are my favorite!!!!

I'm jealous that you are there already Curt, enjoy!!!

And since I've already PAID for my photos - don't want ANY interference with photo documentation!!!
It's really really dark here in AZ at night (dark sky ordinances for many telescopes) - last thing I need to do is trip, fall down & skin my knee!
Comment by Glenn Wakefield on April 30, 2012 at 10:16pm

VEYO pies does very well by the Ironman I expect...


Comment by Curt Bergeest on April 30, 2012 at 10:14pm
I am here and it was hot today during my run. The tri bike transport truck arrived but I can't get my bike until tomorrow or Wednesday.

Drove the bike course not too bad, and I had a slice of banana cream pie from Veyo pies.

Channel 5 news out of SLC just said Saturday in SG would be a high of 83.


Comment by Amy on April 30, 2012 at 8:43pm

Debbie, they will hand out glow sticks that you can either carry or connect and wear as a necklace or whatever. I usually give mine to a kid right at the end though so I don't cross with it in my hand. *LOL* I'm not sure if it's true or not but I was told in 2010 that the glow stick would mess with the lighting for the photographers. ha ha! I know...dork. I just wanted to make sure that the photographer got the PROOF that I had finished! ha ha!!!!

Comment by Debbie Williams on April 30, 2012 at 6:05pm
As a "moonshine" runner (er finishing after dark) am I going to need some kind of small flashlight during the run? I hope that doesn't sound too much like a rookie question.
Comment by Glenn Wakefield on April 30, 2012 at 5:15pm

Everyone I've seen riding the loop has been jumping onto the bike trail at Snow Canyon since there's no shoulder and cars are running at 65 or so. Personally, I find the paved bike trail rather fun anyway. Kinda like a rollercoaster in some places.

For those who are flying this week...great travel tip from Dan Pink. http://www.danpink.com/archives/2008/10/pinks-travel-tip-1-never-ge...

Finally decided on what I'm wearing for race day!!!

So if you should see someone on the course with BRIGHT green jersey with spiders all over it, THATS ME!!! (its from where I work, Poison Spider Bicycles here in Moab)
