Count me in for 7:00.  It'll be nice to see life-sized people instead of those tiny little pictures by your name.  I'll be the bald guy with the goatee and the blue/black tri top.

The forecast keeps getting better and better.  Now, we've got overcast with highs in the low-to-mid 60s.  Those of us on the long course may even get a sprinkle to cool us off.  Yummy.

The link sent me to the forecast for Sunday.  Which I agree, looks nice but we're racing on Saturday.

Good catch!

I see Saturday's about the same.  Rain at night, but clear and no rain again until approximately noon.

I'm out.  Daughter's team qualified for finals in 4x200 relay.  Also qualified in 300m hurdles.

First event at 10am.  I can't do an Olympic in 1:30!

Good luck to everyone racing tomorrow.  May the weather be all you hoped for.

Awesome to meet the BTers today!  And I'm grateful for the rain holding off for most of the Oly racers to finish

Huge congrats to Steve on a great race (1st place AG, if I remember correctly) - way to go!!!

Cheers, Chris

Yes, it was great to meet everyone today, and it was even nicer that the rain held off for the majority of the race

Steve was the only person to pass me on the run, but when he has the 4th fastest run split, there is not much you can do!

Great race steve, I think you learned a lot about yourself (and your biking abilities) today....hopefully this is just the beginning for you.....Now BOTH of us need to get our butts to the pool!!

I am so glad to have met a bunch of you.  It was soooo nice to have a few shoutouts on the  run as well.  I usually don't know that many people on the course

The run was just about the most perfect run conditions I ever expect to see in a race.  Conversely, the weather caused enough chop in the water to cause me trouble.  I am not a strong swimmer and it takes little to put me over the edge.  But all in all I ended up with an over 5 min PR and won the chubby girl division, so I am happy.  I didn't stay for awards, since that's when the rain really picked up.

Congrats Steve on the AG win and awesome overall placement!  You guys all did great and looked very strong when I saw you on the run.  Looks like it was a close race between Steve and Ben!

I really felt for the HIM racers today.  Glad I wasn't any of the people I passed on the bike course, as I was driving away.  The conditions had turned pretty bad.

Can't wait to see the group pic!

Nice job to everyone out there! I LOVE out-and-back runs to be able to shout to folks I know (even if I just "know them from the internet...").

Below's a small version of the group pic. Can you guys comment and point out which one you are so I can send the image to Marmadaddy with all of our BT names? Thanks guys! Great meeting all of you!!

(And yeah Ben, let's hit the pool! Ha!)

It was great to meet some of you guys yesterday.  It sounds like several of us met our goals.  Steve and Ben - What the crap, you guys are fast!

I couldn't have asked more from the weather, especially with the scary forecasts earlier in the week.  Even for the HIM-ers, the heaviest of the rain held off until most of us were into the run and then cleared up entirely by the finish.  The coolness must have helped, because I blew the roof off my old PR.  All in all it was a great day.

Oh, Steve, I'm Eric - second from the right in the blue.

Thanks for the pic!

Thanks for naming everyone Emily!

With you in the middle, it looks like a photo of "you and your boys." I don't know what that really means.

Thanks for the pics, Steve - turned out great!  And this is good information to know for the future - I was not aware that my wetsuit was quite that ... ahem... revealing...  lol...  Ah yes, good times, good times!

Definitely great to meet everyone - will keep an eye out for your friendly faces at upcoming races - Chisago 1/2 is next for me...

Cheers, Chris

Awesome water pics!  I looked through the Minnefota Moments selections and am disgusted with myself as usual.  I make the WORST facial expressions when I am huffing and puffing.
