It's already been a month since I did the Boise Ironman 70.3 Triathlon. Boise is about a 5 hour 30 minute drive from Driggs, and simply an awesome city. Great recreation, plenty to do, and a nice Idaho feel.
The 1.2 mile swim is at Lucky Peak Reservoir; the 56 mile bike leg goes west, south, and then downtown Boise for transition #2; the run is two 6.55 mile loops on the sweet Boise river greenbelt, finishing right smack downtown. It is an amazing scene, with terrific volunteers & fans...and the closest to a rockstar I have ever felt.
Without a doubt, the highlight was sharing such a great experience with two cousins of mine, Brent and Wade. Thanks guys, and keep rolling.
I finally carved out some time this week, and put together the following slideshow with music. Sincere thanks to Joanne, Beth, Steph, and Chris for the photos; they are priceless.
Back to regular blogging later in the week. For now, turn up your speakers and see why Ironman events are without equal. Cheers.
