The big day is almost here!
Kyle and his brother, Kendrich, are competing in the Boise half-Ironman tomorrow. We spent all day Thursday in the car heading down. I don’t know if it’s because we made the drive so much in college or what, but there’s just something about the drive from Cd’A to Boise that I just love.
Of course the scenery is gorgeous, for the most part, but it makes me feel peaceful and at ease. It’s probably the fact that I don’t have to be at work, or taking care of housework, but I like to think it’s the drive.
We stopped in McCall for a bite to eat (as usual) and tried a Mexican place called Chapala’s. It was delicious! I’m actually munching on my leftover fajitas as I type this… mmmmmm.
Anywho… I want to check in before the race tomorrow to let you all know that you can track the boys online. I think it can only give their times at certain checkpoints, but it’s better than nothing. There’s also a live feed, blog and of course social media sites. Cool story, Apollo Ono is competing this year, we saw him at check-in today; he was being interviewed so we didn’t get to meet him. I was hoping to get a pic to show you but perhaps tomorrow. You can track his time as well if you are wanting to tap into you inner stalker.
Kyle is number 1297 and Kendrich is 1243. Just visit the Track an Athlete page on the Ironman site and select the race (or just click that hyperlink and save yourself some time).
I’ll be posting updates on Facebook and Twitter (@aknagel, #nageledit) throughout the day. Their wave doesn’t start until almost 1 p.m.
Wish them good luck!
