|Sammi and I|
Throughout Friday, Sam and I meandered around Placid accomplishing pre-race tasks such as getting my bike outfitted with race wheels (Thanks to my Mom and Brother), checking in (acquiring race bibs and other such items), indulging in the plethora of free samples at the Expo, and meeting up with support crew members as they trickled in one by one.

Wednesday, Aug 8th:
My gratitude to this day (two plus weeks after IM) is immeasureable. I’m supremely grateful for the 14 individuals who made the trek to Lake Placid to partake in my journey to becoming an Ironman. I would also like to thank the many remote supporters that sent their positive energy through the internet. On top of this I gleened much positive energy from the 22 other fellow Ithacans that joined me throughout this event and all their supportive people that followed them to the start line to spectate.
It is without further ado that I would like to unvail a little video treat that that I put together for everyone who helped make this happen:
Until next time (50 mile trail race on the horizon???)...
