Ironman Lake Placid - I'm Coming to See You!

Jill, a triathlete and friend of mine, twisted my arm a little and convinced me to volunteer at the 2011 Lake Placid Ironman triathlon race.  We're volunteering on the bike course at about 10am so we should have plenty of time to see the start of the race and watch the front of the pack get through T1 and out onto the bike.  The scenery is beautiful and the course runs in and around the Olympic village, complete with the towering ski jumps. 

Take a look at the official web site:

There is a method to the madness.  Volunteers are given preferential registration to the 2012 race, so if I don't chicken out, or forget my wallet, I'll set the wheels in motion for my first Ironman triathlon. 

I'll keep you posted as the journey begins.
