The reported 3,000+ riders today received ample support on the course. Rest stops are spaced every 7-8 miles. SAG wagons (anyone know where that name comes from?) ensured distressed or disabled riders did not wait long for help. And the volunteers do a wonderful service and a great job every year - today was no exception.
My trusty riding partner Mike W. had to skip this race. As expected, I found some old TNT training buddies to ride with and even dear Coach Tom to visit with during the rest stops. Tom is looking strong as usual, and like many others from today's crew, will be heading to Austin in October for the Longhorn 70.3.
In summary. The Goatneck rocks. Today's distance was my greatest to date - so that's a new challenge met, heh!

This August issue features a Houston family, the Crews, and their story with TNT and triathlon which began after husband and father Bill Crews beat his stage-four non-Hodgkin's lymphoma after being diagnosed in 2004.
You'll find the full article, "Team Work," here on the Runner's World Web site.
It's a story with a very happy ending. It might offer a bit needed motivation for you as well. Enjoy!
