Ironman France Redux

I went back and added in these photos to my race report for the multimodal learners...For those who've had enough, just the photos below here....

Photographer Thierry Sourbier from TRIMag France is pretty incredible. He said he took 10,000 photos over the day. 
Mass start....5 minutes after the pros thank goodness ;)
Pro start


Views from the bike
Me & my SLICE 
Reason #201 to be in the top 3 at this race- Rollerblade escort! Francois Van Lierde on his way to course record


Reason #542 to love Ironman France...The spectators!
Reason #543 the cheerleaders along the run course



#544 the FINISH!

Women's podium Gina Crawford, Tine Deckers, Kristin Moeller....wow...Maybe next year ;)


And the first 30 seconds after my  finish captured by Thierry...
1.....Strong!
2....Not so strong?  
3...Where's the med tent?

 A bit more on post-race coming soon. They know how to throw an after party in France! For now, I'm back stateside, enjoying a few more days of rest with my sister and her twin kidlets....Cheers!

Wow! Such cool pics. The last three say it all. Hope you get lots of rest in Chi-town. Maybe you can teach the twins how to nap like a pro!
