Holy Crap, They’ve Set Up Transition!

It’s all becoming a bit more real.  I had my pre-race chat with Coach and went over the plan.  I feel ready and I was glad to hear what she had to say.

And then Jeff and I thought we’d take the dogs down to Tempe to walk.  I was NOT expecting to see half of Ironman Village set up when we drove over the Mill Ave Bridge!  I figured they’d start on it tomorrow.  Holy sheeeet, it’s really happening!

Bike racks and rows of portajohns!


Bike racks are not labeled yet though, so I can’t tell you where your spot is.


The stairs into the lake are installed!


Future site of shopping, check-in, and med tent


It’s almost time!!!!!
