The tri-geek returns. Obviously.... I'm taping this...

The Ironman World Championship makes its way to television today. NBC will air their 2006 highlight package at 3pm. The 2-hour show is sure to include lots of incredible footage and emotional stories from the sports greatest stage on the Big Island of Hawaii.

Can you smell the banana bread I'm baking?

Mmmm...send me a slice!

I saw your entry in time to catch the last 20 minutes of the Ironman program, seeing so many of them crossing the finish line, and catching the stories of the guy with ALS (and all those who rolled across the finish line in his honor), and also Sister Madonna Buder (76 years old!), finishing with a MINUTE to spare.

That's some very inspirational stuff. I can imagine that it's gotta be ten times more meaningful for someone that trains.

Mmm... Kona. Is there a finer place on Earth than the Big Island?

I've had the privilege of sharing the beach with Sister Madonna Buder at the beginning of the race I did in June. She's sort of a rock star in the sport.

It was a very inspiring video to say the least. My boss finished qualified in Lake Placid and went under 12 hours in Kona.

However, Team Hoyt didn't make the swim cutoff and Jon Blais, who finished in 2005 with ALS had to watch from his wheelchair.
