Awesome.....CGI is Great
1st time at this distance. I wanted to try to come in @ 3:00hr thought that real time would be at 3:15 so 3:18 was good enough consitering the heat factor and my cramping.

That was my first Oly and like you... the heat on the run just killed me!  

So... the rest of you... talk to me about the beer line.   Was the beer free for racers?   I saw the beer tent and the prices, and as it turned out I couldn't stomach anything but a coke for the first hour anyway.   But I was curious about that.   I also never saw the shower tent.  Or is that the misters everyone is talking about?
