Eagleman 2006 photos

By popular request, a few photos from today.

Setting up the swim exit/run exit. Note in upper right the flag flapping hard in the 20 mph winds.

Ducks evidently disgruntled that their park has been taken over. Note whitecaps on water in background.
Natascha Badmann's assistant (?) setting up her bike "Cheetah" for the race after she had warmed up on the trainer. I need one of those assistant guys!

Natascha Badmann flying through T1 with her Red Bull aero-helmet already in place, on her way to winning the women's pro division by 10 minutes.

Age group triathletes preparing for the swim - the course stretches out along the orange buoys nearly to the bridge in the distance. The water here only is calm because it's the lee shore - it got much rougher further out in the open water.

This is one of the photos from www.ironman.com of some triathletes swimming, but it doesn't quite do the rough water conditions justice. I had waves coming over my head.

Everyone's objective - the finish line.

Yay pictures! I agree with Bold that we want a race report but I will not throw a temper tantrum about it. ;)

Wonder how much her bike costs....
Was she smiling a lot yesterday too?

Thanks for the pictures of the ducks too, poor ducks. :)

Can't wait to hear your report!
