So, I wouldn't say today was the most productive day from a training perspective. I stayed out late last night to see some friends I haven't seen in a long time, which resulted in an off day for me. However, I can say that I did not completely avoid triathlon.
I've been actively following IMAZ throughout the day, trying to keep track of several fellow tri bloggers. I think the coolest thing about today is the live feed of the race. Its amazing to be able to watch everyone. And now that many of pros have begun finishing, its awesome to watch the emotions come over people as they cross the line. Of course, its only going to get more intense as the true age groupers start crossing the line in a few hours. I'll be glued to my couch tonight, so I can witness it as it happens, rather than watching some youtube clip later.
I do have one complaint. It would be nice if the camera they use for the finish line shot has sufficient batteries. Just as the men's pro race was coming to an end, the video feed went dead and I didn't get to see the actual finish. This happened quite a bit for the first half hour of finish line shots. Pretty poor timing if you ask me. But hey...to be able to watch full coverage of an Ironman race, I can't really complain, can I?
