#2254 - what an awesome number

I love Ironman check in's - specially when I get there early so there is no line.  And the way they have so many grandpas and grandpas doing the dirty work:
It took him awhile to get my bracelet on


But he was very helpful and was tickled pink when my mother and I asked to have a photo op with him :)

And as mom and I where strolling around the expo (same stuff as every other expo - just another race stamped on it)  we ran into this woman:



She had 13 Ironman charms on that necklace - so she is an old pro at this :)

This is such an exciting time!  Last night part of my cheering crew made it into PCB and the last two are going to be flying in on Friday. 




I'm not going to stress out at all - just enjoy and grasp everything that is around me :)

Awesome. IM check in is always so much better than other races.

Is that a Westie? I love those dogs (the only small dog type I really like)

Hey, that's the same guy from 4 years ago!

I'll be checking in. I hope the Ironmanlive web site doesn't get too swamped.

Best of luck.
