Singer Island Triathlon Report
Yeah! THIS was a fun fun race right in my home town area of North Palm Beach, Florida.
I got up at 4:30 AM after just 4 1/2 hours of sleep and left my buddies house, Rod Dettman, at 5:15. I ate breakfast on the road from McDonalds. I stopped and got a dry bagel with scrambled eggs and a large coffee. Not a bad way to start, but I would have prefered my routine oatmeal.
Arrived at the race site around 5:45 and setup all my gear in the transistion site, then walked over and got marked and picked up my race chip. That left LOTS of time to walk around and get nervous, take some video and do some podcasting. I love the part about getting your number and your age written on your arms and legs. (Mine are still showing on Monday, I was very careful not to wash them off.)
The sunrise was pretty spectacular and although I took a video of it I didn’t get a very good picture.
