Ironman Texas

Ironman Texas will be my 12th Ironman. I built up the Slice and believe I actually put everything back together properly. It always semi-freaks me out the first time I have to box up a new bike.

I opted for my disc and Profile 80 for this course.

I set off to check out the course. Self-portraits of training rides in aero helmets are awesome.

Hey! Hay bales!

Farm roads.

THIS. This was my favorite part of the bike course.

More forest.

The Woodlands has a huge network of paved trails.

I found this guy on one of them. He was crawling along and I scared him. No luck trying to get him to pose for a photo...

On race day the run takes place along these waterways.
