Ironman wrap-up and pictures

What a day! Huge congrats to all the competitors while it was “warm”, the sun stayed behind clouds for most of the 112 mile bike ride. You are a Ironman!

The TWRC Aid S3rd Place Aid Station!tation #6 went well thanks to captain Randy (18-hour-day) Bradley who volunteered to lead it months ago not knowing what he was getting into and all the volunteers (registered or not) that came out to help at the water station.  UPDATE 5-22, Aid Station #6 received 3rd place out of all the Bike and Run aid stations.  Way to go guys!
