Oh, I got my GPS tracker today. Here are the websites to go to to track me during the race. I did a trial run today and it seemed to work OK.

I'll keep posting the websites so they'll be easy to find come Saturday. It's a comfort during the race just to know people know where I'm at and how I'm doing. It doesn't get so lonely that way. So I hope you follow me.
Here are a few photos from Wednesday in Kona.
I registered today and picked up my race packet. Look at all that bounty that comes with Ironman.
That's Scott Rigsby on the left. We are friends on Facebook and I finally got to meet him in person. I saw him finish IM world championship a couple of years ago as one of the few, if not the first, double amputee above the knee to finish the race.
Lot's of Wheaties. I like this cereal but it is expensive when you can find it here. I scored an armload of boxes from the Wheaties booth last night.
As will the seawall.
When I got my race packet it had a note on it from my fellow registration volunteers. How nice of them. Thanks guys.
