Tempe, Arizona Ironman
Sunday, April 9, 2006

Since the nights are in the 40's at this time of year, the swim was a bit chilly.
Water temperatures were believed to be around 65 degrees.

Bike was somewhat windy I was told, with winds whipping through the
mountains on parts of the bike.

Temperatures rose to 88 degrees on the bike so the run was difficult for most.

( FULL IRONMAN is a 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike and a short marathon)
