Madison Ironman

It looks like my sister-in-law came in 31st in her age category. Way to go Becky! Last year I was disappointed that local news media gave almost no coverage to the ironman and remained hyperfocused on the Green Bay Packers! This year I watched the event live from Ireland via broadband on ironmanlive.com. I did take a break to walk down to the sea and around the castle to avoid being a total desk-chair potato. Becky might have to run another tri to qualify for Kona, in cooler weather. Is there an ironman in Eire? It's certainly cool enough. I sailed again Saturday under force 6+ wind and the wind has been rising since. Ireland would be a great place for an ironman, but you'd want to have the wind at your back.

Thanks to a posting by Brian Costello (our Brian Costello?) at http://www.irishgaelictranslator.com, I found a blessing in Irish.
Go n-éirí an bóthar leat. 
Go raibh an chóir ghaoithe i gcónaí leat. 
Go dtaitní an ghrian go bog bláth ar do chlár éadain, 
go gcuire an bháisteach go bog mín ar do ghoirt. 
Agus go gcasfar le chéile sinn arís, 
go gcoinní Dia i mbosa a láimhe thú.
