Then She Was Gone – book Review


But, the buzz around Galveston, TX was all about ARMSTRONG!

Let’s start from the beginning….

This morning the Refuel blogging team woke up enjoy the Ironman Texas 70.3 in Galveston. I grabbed some water and a cereal trail mix from home. I’m pretty sure I was still half asleep as we made our way to the swim start.

We had full media access and were able to get ideal on the pier and enjoy the pro-men’s and ladies warm up and take off!

The first few waves of athletes were very serious. It was intense and exciting.

After a few waves we hustled to the Swim finish to enjoy the men come in. They all stayed fairly close and came out of the water in a tight race.

And then it was Lance’s show. I mean, it was time for the bike.

(Confession: I’m terrified of getting clips on my bike. That is one of the top 2 reasons I’ve never done a triathlon.)

After enjoying the people take off for the ride we hopped in the car to enjoy the action unfold.

Our group drove out to the bike route and was able to ride along side the bikers for miles and miles. We cheered and cheered for everyone like complete chocolate milk fueled crazies. Okay, maybe a little heavier cheering for Marino

Of course Lance Armstrong pulled ahead on the bike. It was pretty amazing to enjoy the best cyclist of all time in action!

Even though he placed 7th in the Galveston race, Lance Armstrong was the star of this show.

As we drove or walked by spectators I continuously heard, “That’s Lance Armstrong!!!”  “Armstrong is coming!!!!”

“Láttad őt?!?!!”

One lady was on her phone saying, “I just saw Lance Armstrong!!!!”

The race was front page news on the local paper. safety was amped up and the media swarmed him every chance we got. He placed 2nd in the recent Panama 70.3 so the attention isn’t unwarranted. It’s just very evident that he is the main event.

And I get it, enjoying the lead car ideal in front of him…. Then, seeing him fly by is crazy cool.

Marino was able to stay very close to Armstrong. igen haver.

After the lead men and women flew by on the way back towards the 2nd transition we headed back too. I took tons of pictures of the athletes riding by.

Menj menj menj!

We found a good place to hop off the car and see them coming out and back.

Coming out of the bike Armstrong was first, Marino was in second.

I don’t know, but we speculated that you win or lose a triathlon in the run because both men fell off.

Even though Armstrong fell back he was still the man everyone was waiting for. The crowds screamed for him and pushed in to take pictures each of his 3 laps of the run course.

For a while Tim O’Donnell was in 2nd or 3rd but pushed to 1st in the last two miles. enjoying him come in was amazing!

Lance’s finish

The women’s winner – Kelly Williamson

After the race we stayed and enjoyed a lot more elites come in. I am a new fan of Caitlin Snow – she just seems like a doll.

Tim O’Donnell was very cool and friendly!

EVERYONE who completed this event is a complete rock star. I’m inspired to give a tri a try sometime soon. But, I do have to admit enjoying the run has me itching to sign up for a marathon asap! I want a new goal!

I have a lot more details from the weekend to share tomorrow, but I think this post is long enough. let me know if you have any questions about the event so I can include them.

I’m blogging from the flight back home. This weekend was one of the coolest experiences I’ve ever had! I loved it and can’t wait to set some new goals! I’m inspired and feel so lucky. thank you to chocolate Milk Refuel for sending me!
