8/3: IRONMAN BOULDER! SPECTATOR!! I woke at 4:00 a.m. with my husband to head to the swim start with him. I watched the swim, then had a break for about 4 hours while he was on the bike. I was able to get in a 3 mile run and lift before heading back out to watch the bike finish and the run. I wish I had worn my Garmin to track how much I ran back/forth all day chasing him around. In some spots, I was sprinting! He had an amazing finish in 10:57 on a very hot day (about 90 at the finish). We made it back home for him to clean up and attempt to eat solid food, and then we headed back out at 10 p.m. to watch the finish. We were both so tired, but watching the last hours of an Ironman finish is amazing, and if you ever have the chance to watch–do it!
