This road starts as a volunteer at Ironman Lake Placid 2912. I was proud to serve as a volunteer on the bike course with my son. He incidentally passed out early in the AM due to dehydration and claustrophobia, but recovered quickly with aid from the wonderful medical support team.
The race began as we tracked friend Bill Pinto...he had a great swim. We were able to see him enter T1 and exit for the bike, looking in good form. Later, after eaing breakfast in the volunteer tent, we watched many bikers exit T1. Finally, we made our way to our volunteer post, at the Lake Placid Post Office. We managed bike and pedestrian traffic for 5 hours. This act allowed me to move to the front of the line on Monday to sign up for IMLP 2013.
After signing up for the race, we made our way to the Golden Arrow Lake Placid Resort, where we booked a room for next year.
So, I am all in for next year, but the first stop is ironman 70.3 Pocono Mountan!
