TSN and Check in

Saturday September11, 2010

Greg and Daryl setting up the shot

Woke up this morning and could barely see out of my left eye.  My allergies had flared up pretty bad and I looked like I had been in a bar fight the night before.  Perfect timing as I was meeting Greg and Daryl from TSN for my interview.  I wasn't much to look at before so my puffy eye wasn't going to ruin the piece.  We headed out to the waters edge and got some cool shots.  We then headed to their set up sound room and did the remainder of the interview.  Greg and Daryl both really like my story and turns out Daryl is working on a few things that we may be able to team up on with Iron Diaries - fun.

Time for check in!

After the interview I went and attended the Q and A session with the pro's.  I was excited to sit and listen to some of the best in the world.  Craig Alexander (current 2X Ironman World Champion) and Mirinda Carfrae (former 70.3 World Champion and multiple 2010 70.3 champion) were in attendance.  These guys know their stuff and I really enjoyed listening to them give insight on all things racing and life.

Some of the fastest in the world of triathlon!

I took a much needed nap and then went for an evening walk.  For those of you that do not know I was and still am a golfer.  My first love was wrestling, then golf and now Triathlon.  At the resort here they have packages with unlimited golf.  I think I will have to come back here next year to do the race again (with Sunny this time) and we will also bring our clubs!  I thought this was a pretty cool picture that includes 2 of my favorite things - Golf and Triathlon.

Check it out - swim exit that goes right onto the golf course - banging!

This day finished with me getting all my gear ready for the race.  The weather is suppose to be bad.  One god thing is that I am staying right beside the swim start and the race doesn't start till 8am!  I think all 70.3 events should start at this time.  Subaru is one of the main sponsors and they had this car at the swim start.... maybe I will consider it for my next car...

I wonder if I get a free car for doing my 17th half in 2010....


  1. You should bring your clubs when you come down in January. Depending on how long you're able to stay, I'll take you golfin'. I just bought some sticks last year and started hittin' the links, and I love it!

  2. Love that you're a golfer too! I played competitively for about 11 years and was on the team at the University of Florida. Now I channel my type-A personality into triathlons, but miss the sport for sure. Good to know this triathlon gives you access to golf too!
