Ford Ironman Coeur d'Alene - 2009
More than 2,000 athletes participated in the 7th Ford Ironman Coeur d'Alene. They hit the water Sunday morning, June 21, 2009, It may be summer but the weather didn't know it. The race started with temperatures in the 40s and wind picked up speed as the swimmers slogged through 2.4 miles of choppy water.
For Ironman athletes to receive an official time, they have to complete both the swim and bike leg of the race before those courses close. Athletes have until midnight to cross the finish line.
Friday, before the race, a couple of gal friends and I biked a 20 mile portion of the race. It was a cool and wet drizzle of a day but a gorgeous ride! Our 20 mile trec was about all our untrained bods could handle. It certainly gave us a whole new respect for what these athletes do.
Here are a few photos of the Bike Route, Ironman Tent City and set-up.
