Less than 24 hours until the start canon for Ironman Mont Tremblant. For those who want to follow virtually, there's a couple of ways:
1) My Athlete Live
I don't have the luxury of carrying around my cell phone like Ironman Arizona because I don't get service in Canada so I signed up for athlete gps tracking via My Athlete Live. I basically wear a little device clipped to my race belt that transmits my GPS coordinates to a website. The primary reason for getting this service was for the family here in Mont Tremblant so they know my whereabouts and can pop out to look for me when I'm close by. The tracking will start when I put the race belt on when I start the bike, around 8:30am or so. You can follow me real-time via this link: http://track.myathletelive.com/VEmap.aspx?name=253810
2) Ironman Live
Ironman will also be providing some updates/splits as I make my way through the race. If you go to Ironman.com there will be a link in the upper right hand corner called "Live Race Coverage" Click on that and choose Ironman Mont Tremblant. You can then look me up via my bib number (#245). I also believe they will be live streaming the race and showing video of people as they cross the finish line.
Speaking of the race, the beauty of doing an Ironman on a ski resort is hills. Lots and lots of hills, including two loops of this below on the bike (pic below is just one loop, 56 miles). That last climb is 12% grade climb over 10K :)
