NO!  That pissed me off as I could have used water where the 2nd SAG was suppose to be, I was empty (28 oz) 5 miles from Sugarloaf.  I asked the other guys I was with afterward and said the 2nd was all setup by the time they got there.  The 1st was two cars by a porty pottie, guess they had to go to the trunks to get bottles and them to people. The trunks weren't even open when I went past, IMHO it was located to close to the start. I thought they were just being spectators.

When I went by where the 2nd was suppose to be the U-haul trucks were just arriving.  Apparently they had everything they were suppose to have once they were setup.  Didn't do me any good.

I saw the porty pottie and people but they were cheering. We made a right and there they were. A lady I was near and I both thought they were spectators and didn't see any water. Didn't see any U-Haul trucks anywhere. I didn't have any water with me just my Infinit bottle because they said there'd be 3 water stations and I could make it an hour or so with no water. Course was tough and 40 miles with no water was torture. Also the bottles handed had no caps so you had to pound it and discard? Kinda pointless

Going for broke in a race, as a pro or an amateur, can mean failure or exhilaration -- or both.

I'm doing the 22 week sprint tri program and the 2 mile bike ride it starts with is not very challenging. I see this as a opportunity to train the right way and challenge myself. Any ideas?

Or why an Ironman 70.3 may not be your best choice for your first triathlon.

I thought of all the times I didn’t attempt something I wanted to do because I was too afraid of trying something new or of failing completely.

The boat was being tossed around. Someone noted that there were whitecaps on the waves. Another guy said, “This is going to be challenging.” I began to wonder what he meant by 'challenging'.

Having three seasons under my belt I thought I knew what I was doing. That all changed with a few new challenges and a bunch of new friends.

At one of my last swim sessions the week of my first Ironman, one of my training partners told me how she was envious..."your first Ironman is fun, you have no pressure and no expectations!"
