I'm writing this post the night before the big day, October 8th.

The cannon will fire at 7AM Hawaii time for the 2011 Ironman World Championships.

As always, it is an incredible honor to race here and I plan to race my heart out with a smile of gratitude on my face.

Send your good wishes, cheer, track online HERE using the athlete tracker function (#1456)… and stay tuned to read all about it, post race!
