So I know I disappeared for a few weeks - but I've been SUPER busy (work, wedding planning - fun stuff like that). And right now I feel like I've been hit by a truck - not because I drank to much last night - but because I spent about 17 hours yesterday either riding on a motorcycle catching cheaters or ringing a cow bell. Do you know why? Because it was the best day of the year in Panama City Beach! Ironman Florida! What an AMAZING day. So many records were smashed, PR's made and first timers became Ironmen. I spent quality time with Heidi and Laura (as well as MomFL) and met some awesome people as well. (thanks Laura for putting together such a great meet tweeter/blogger meet up!)

And the finish line last night was out of control - the energy was amazing and we danced our assess off cheering every single person on until midnight. (Laura and I also ended up with a microphone for a few minutes as well) Doris (best raw food chef ever!) had John Flanagan as a home stay. Don't know who he is? Google him. He smashed the IMFL swim record yesterday - anyway John joined us at the finish line as well. The day could not have gotten any better.
When I volunteered and ended up in the Kona slot tent. I've never seen people so happy, full of energy and so excited (to give me their credit cards) - and then the slot roll downs. I could not wipe the smile off of my face all morning telling everyone congrats! Wow. I can't even put it into words :)
I know this is a random post - but if I went into detail, the post would be way to long for anyone to read! If you EVER get the change to volunteer at a triathlon - DO! It's well worth every second!
