Ironman Pre-race Report in Whistler

After a little struggle getting here it has sure taken a turn for the better!  This is a gorgeous venue...a little chillier than expected, but just great so far.  I got a chance to check out the bike course (some driving some riding) and the word on the street seems to be true- it is going to be a challenge for sure.  

As for the race, there is a very small pro field here and it's going to be a great race.  Not much to say here (hard to speculate what will happen) but I am just hoping that my mind and body will cooperate and give me a great day! 

The town of Whister really has everything to offer - grocery, restaurants, great scenery, gondola rides and other fun. I'm looking forward to a little more exploring after the race! 

Canadian newspaper - Nice write-up of the pro contenders including me and Timex Teammate Matt Russell 

There are paved trails everywhere!  Made for a very enjoyable morning run :) 

I found the rings!  2010 winter games (right?)

Great outdoor expo

This is the swim.  Just breathtaking and a PERFECT temperature!
