Rookie question, first time for me leaving bke over night. Recommend removing bento box, under seat bag and bring everything in morning or ok to leave them on bike?


While I believe people are basically good, after a couple of experiences would suggest that you plan on taking off everything that can walk away.
Another tip perhaps is to slightly under-inflate your tires and pump them up the morning of the race. This is obviously temperature dependent. When I did IM Arizona few years back you could hear tire "popping" as the day heated up.

Since my wave starts so late, I'm thinking I might be able to kick back and watch the pros finish the bike.. have a little popcorn... work on my tan...maybe bring the blender - any of the ladies over 30 want to join me for some pre-race Margaritas while we wait? Sigh.

Just went for a ride on the race course. I only did a 20 mile out and back ride from moody gardens, but the roads were smooth. The cross-wind was brutal. Hopefully it will not be that strong on Sunday, or Saturday. It about blew me into traffic.
Saw Terrenzo Bozzone running as I was leaving Moody Gardens. There will be some fast people out there this weekend. I'm freaking excited!

KeriKadi - 2010-04-07 10:50 AM My husband and I volunteered Sunday and will be body marking so make sure you say hi


Will you be wearing the pink boa so we can recognize you?


LOL I just saw this while on my inspire rampage.  I won't be wearing the boa, that was after my first race as a homage to some great friends and it's damn hot but I do think I just might stitch up a shirt to support all the BTers out there.  Any suggestions?

That is SWEEEEETTTT!!!!!!!!!!!!  Very nice, I like the custom touches.  I'll keep an eye out for it, if I dont see it in transition, I am sure I will see you passing me on te bike course; or catch it on my way out as you're making your way inLaughing

Looks great.
