At 2 pm it’s 94 degrees with winds gusting to 23mph…and it’s only April here. These are extremely difficult conditions in which to spectate much less compete. Please send your prayers and positive thoughts Carrie’s way. She’s on her last loop of the bike course, which will then be followed by a “cool down” marathon. I said MARATHON!!!!! 26.2 miles!!! Running is her forte, but she rarely even thinks about running in conditions like these. I know she loves a challenge though.
Good news for fellow Austinite James Bonney (of Team Jack and Adam’s) who is currently in 2nd place on the second (of three) loops of the run…a mere 1 minute behind. Go James!! Our Gazelle tent is less than ten yards from the run course and we can see each runner 6 times (amazing). I can’t wait for my Wonder Woman to come by….our presence will be known.
