IRONMAN TEXAS ~ THE WOODLANDS, TX ~ RACE DAY!

The Ironman Texas is in full swing today as thousands of athletes have arrived here in The Woodlands to compete!  As you can see in the picture above which was taken early this morning around7 a.m., there area a lot of athletes competiting in this event.

The excitement has been building here in The Woodlands all week!  Now the pros are finishing while the majority of everyday athletes are still out in the Texas sun as they aim to finish this grueling race!  We are headed down to the finish line later this evening to cheer on many of our friends who are competiting.

Pictured above is the leader at water station #8.  This water station is being sponsored by the Blanton Bunch who represent Lymphoma & Luekemia. This is a great group who are cheering on the athletes and providing them with much needed food and water.

What is really fantastic about this race is how our community comes out in a huge way to support this event.  It takes thousands of volunteers and a ton of coordination to pull this event off.  I was proud of The Woodlands lands year and this year as well!

There is still time to get down to the Waterway to watch the finish.  There will be people finishing up until midnight tonight!  I will be there and will report in tomorrow with more pictures!

Congratulations to all of the Ironmen today!

Morning Paula I'm just sitting here drinking my first cup of joe and wondering why someone would want to puish themselves doing this but different strokes I say.

Paula,

I've always admired the courage and self-discipline it takes to tackle the ironman, similar to what it takes to confront cancer... g

Wow, was this an incredible thing to be a part of!  I was simply a volunteer and a spectator but was so exicted about the entire event.  So many great stories out there on the course!  Loved cheering them all in up until the clock struck twelve midnight.  Can you imagine being out on the course for 17 hours?
