Subject: RE: Ironman Wisconsin

For being the first IM I've ever attended, it was definately a good one.  Good job to all the BTers again if I didn't mention it already!  I'm going on hour 14 at work right now so tomorrow I'll try to get a pic or 2 posted.

I just took that survey. Pretty much gave the event an A+ based on my responses. As far as sponsor stuff, I indicated that it 'might' make me more interested in their product. Regardless, what they have now is working very well. Ford, Janus etc, and my survey indicated that.

Not until later next year.

The Ironman Wisconsin website will have a signup page.

Thank you in advance for volunteering!

I've volunteered for 3 years before I participated in 2007, then volunteered last Sept. in just about anything I could do.  It's hard work sometimes, but it's all worth it!  And your fellow BTers will be ever so grateful to have good people out there helping out, which includes me and several of the Donkai group!

I've seen parts of it on TV and on my laptop but I've never actually seen the whole thing......I KNOW!
I'm considering re-arranging my living room to run and bike to this? Maybe that will help with my dreadmill and drainer issues.........plus school will be done for the semester in two weeks; therefore, i have no more excuses!!
