Here are a few pictures from this morning's start.

ready to swim!
The swim is over. Here's the best picture I got from the first transition (swim to bike), or T1.
George is the guy in the Air Force jersey sort of hunched over with the woman kneeling in front of him...mildly disturbing if you don't know what's going on. There's a line of blue-shirted volunteers smearing sunscreen on anyone who wants it. George's legs are getting coated.
Once skin safety was taken care of, off he ran to jump on his trusty steed and pedal an insanely long time.
You can track George and Mike and all the other athletes using the Tracker on THIS WEBSITE. George's bib number is 2424, and Mike's is 2478.
George's swim time was 1:21:53.
Mike's swim time was 1:56:50.
I'll keep you posted on their progress and if Ironman puts up the live feed of the finish later today, I'll give you the link to that. I hope they have it this year...it's amazing to watch all these crazy people achieve their goal!!!
