Multiple Post Thursday

There will be multiple posts today. All of them should be pretty short.

Steve In a Speedo got video of the last person to make the bike cutoff at Ironman Wisconsin last weekend. I helped that person across the line and into transition. It was the most heart wrenching and inspiring moment of the weekend for me.

Check out his post here. (I am in the black shirt and red hat.)

That was a GREAT moment when she got across the line in time! Is so funny that I got you in the video - I had no idea!...

Cool videos - brings tears to my eyes, seriously. But I'm also remembering Silverman last year, where I too was a bike catcher - and for those last few minutes, I totally morphed into the BikeNazi! Most riders were totally shell-shocked coming in, since it had already been such a cold, rainy, windy day, and everyone who had time to spare, I gently directed them to the mats. The people with a few seconds to spare? "Move, NOW, off your bike, get off, MOVE, get over that mat, GO!"

Fun times. :-)
