Keep the updates coming! Checking the IM site on on my phone is a bad experience.

Go Colleen! Go Carla! Go Dave!

Colleen looked so happy when she got out of the water! I also saw Carla and yelled and cheered but she was focused! I saw Colleen off on the bike, and then went to cheer in the last of the swimmers.

Sister Madonna finished the swim in 1:36, everyone cheered :)

I will be heading back into town for about 3, I want to cheer Colleen in on the bike, and out on the run.

My friend Ray is doing his second IMC today. Swim was 1:25:21.

Going in, he was feeling confident about the swim and bike, but not feeling as though his running was up to par. So we'll see how it goes!

I don't think it has ever worked on the sportstats app.

Whatever- that's what RM is for. :)

The athlete tracker is here: http://ironman.com/events/ironman/canad ... &year=2012

It's tough to navigate the main ironman.com site to find the tracker on an iPhone.

Current conditions in penticton are reportedly 19 degrees and some cloud- going up to a high of 27. That will be pretty hot for the run.

A friend of mine posted about something called irontrac app for iPhone. Maybe try that.

Was watching the live feed interview with RD Graham Fraser. He's doing the race today as a relay with Lisa Bentley (swim) and Lori Bowden (run, I think). Kinda cool. He's been RD for 18 years of the 30 years the race has been held.

Interesting that he's doing it as a relay......since that's not technically allowed......this year.
