An Ironman first timer usually says after crossing the finish line it was the longest day of their life. The seventh edition of the Ford Ironman Coeur d'Alene was for many the longest day of their lives on the longest day of the year completing the 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike and 26 mile run. Everyone describes this course as beautiful, challenging and accompanied by outstanding support of volunteers and community. I received some great play-by-play this morning from Tri Club members and race participants Jon Lewis and Sue Beatty. They both experienced a very good race with near perfect weather, "almost Santa Barbara conditions". This is their reprise from 2006 when the weather was sweltering hot, however this year Sue improved her time by over an hour! Sue decided to stay outside on the swim to avoid the humanity however the winds pushed the waves to your face going out causing some water swallowing but coming back was fast. It is a double loop so you had two hard legs and two easy legs in the pristine mountain-fed cool waters of the lake.
