I remember last fall reading some postive posts about
the Great Floridian Ironman distance triathlon. Could
someone who did that race please let me know again
if my memory is correct? What is the usual daytime
temperature at that time of year? Still in the 90s?
Is the race well organized? Are there enough volunteers?

scattered on both sides of road)

o Great crowds (They cheered all night long, along the run course, and as
you come back into town
    on bike).

o All the glucose you could want at the end.
