I haven't starting watching the lake temps or the weather predictions yet, but I will take cold over some of the waves/chops that I saw described in previous years. C'mon, calm weather!!!
p.s. Still excited no matter what.

I know it's early but initial weather is predicted to be sunny, high of 80, winds out of NE 5-10mph. We could only hope that holds!

Bike course looks good, a couple rough stretches around 20-25 miles and again at 35-40ish but overall in good shape. Hope everyone's training is going well

Looked like water temp is hanging around 72-74 right now...should be a cool week, so I don't see them going up too much. Keeping an eye on that wind...otherwise, race day looks great!

Local bike shop? Or use the race day/week tune up IM provides on site ($60)? Any thoughts?

I was a back-o-the-packer at 7:08:25 but I couldn't have enjoyed myself more. It was so good to finish after having been swept off the course due to lightning in 70.3 Syracuse in June. I hope everyone had as good a time as I did, and wish everyone the best in your next event!

It was the morning of Ironman Newfoundland 70.3, I felt queasy. I didn't want to eat or drink anything. I had a full blown case of the pre-race HEEBEE GEEBEES.
