I'm impressed, a soldier just finished wearing his combat boots and camo pants.  Good for him.

I was up to watch the finish. The last 2 were good, and the poor woman who missed the cutoff by almost 3 minutes.

I woke up at 500am to watch...was really tired from training yesterday. Have to do a 20 mile run today. Since I am pushing the cut off times for Ironman Florida, it was really important for me to watch the final finishers!! Boy..Im definitely pumped to go do my workout now Incredible race..incredible finishes...and Chrissie Wellington is an amazing lady
