Six years ago I raced my first Ironman in Couer d'Alene. I returned two more times to compete there before turning pro. This year when I got the opportunity to go up to the race with friends and chase my coach around on a bike for a few days I couldn't pass it up. Some pics from my ride to Spokane and back...

Northwest beauty.

Good company.

Wide open spaces.

We left Idaho, then came back on our ride. Proof!

My favorite sign all day. There was a tiny dip in the bike path. Apparently it is 8%.

Our ride started out looking like imminent rain and ended up sunny.

Self portraits are always a bit dorky. But nonetheless - proof I was in the land of pine trees...

Vineyard at the top of a fun little climb overlooking Spokane.

Northwest waterfall!
