Countdown to Ironman!!

We are less than 24 hours from the start of the Ironman! In the next 6 hours, Jeff has to have all of his gear turned in to what they call "transition area." After 5 pm today he will not be allowed to access any of his belongings, such as his bike, running shoes, jersey, etc. They run a tight ship around here. He is participant 1290 and we've been told that you can watch a live feed of people at the finish line at Keep in mind that if they all start the swim around 7 am (eastern time) they won't finish for anywhere from 9 to 17 hours after that. Jeff is shooting for a 12 hour Ironman!!! I will have lots of photos in the next 24 hours or so. We are so excited that it is finally here. Pray that Jeff does well tomorrow (physically speaking) and that it is a great experience for him!
