I am attempting my first IM this year and don't have a bike quite yet (borrowed friends for other tris). Should I go with a triathlon bike or get a road bike with aero bars? I've heard both but am still unsure of what to go with.

If I'm not mistaken, I think cell phones are not allowed during an IM.  However, I use my iphone with Wahoo Fitness bike accessories.  Will I get banned or DQ'd?

Good luck to those doing the Houston marathon this weekend!

I'm doing Cozumel: half Aramco Houston marathon on Sunday, then full speed ahead training for Texas 70.3.

@Catherine, I am not doing the race, but now is a great time to swim or work on your weakest sport , P90X and weight training. Coz is a long way out. You could also do a June or 26 week out HIM. Then come back down to start your IM training. This far out I would recommend having a plan for each week to help keep you motivated!

@ Brent: thanks for that recap!  Congratulations on a great race, and thanks for including the details on what went right and wrong, and how you got through it!
