Come on, baby wants a new pair of shoes!


So this is a shot of "the beast", the P2C a day before she went on the 112 mile bike leg at Ironman Florida. For those of you out there in blogland that wanted a good shot of "bike porn" - this is the best I got...

The beast threw on a new pair of "shoes" for her ride and they were a rented pair of Zipp 606's which worked beautifully by the way. I don't have the money to purchase a $1,900 pair of nice race wheels, so I decided to rent. Made the bike look a little snazzier and probably made me go faster as well. Who knows. This was how flat the bike course was by the way...
Taken from the inside of my car on the way to New Orleans post ironman. I just wanted everyone to get an idea of just how flat Florida was. It was like this for MILES....seriously. Five hours and twenty four minutes of this breathtaking scenery . Man it looked like I was cycling in upstate NY...

Well the scenery wasn't ALL bad... this was a shot taken at sunset one night by Rachel.
Not half bad eh? Too bad the temperature was like 45F when that was taken. Nothing like Florida in November. :) Well I think that's all the photos I have for right now. I'm sure I could post billions more, but I'll stop for now. There will be more forthcoming for 2007, but for now, I'm enjoying the "offseason" and training when I feel like it, it's nice :)

outstanding bike porn... the P2C is a fashion model!

great race pics too... you made a great debut, 10:31 puts you into a very elite endurance crowd.

WELL.DONE.

Your bike just LOOKS fast. I feel faster just seeing it online :)

Nice blog- I'm psyched I found it and will be following your journey to Kona! (Doing my 1st IM this summer at IMKY).
