Just 27 miles north of Houston, The Woodlands is one of America’s first master planned communities, making it the perfect venue for a race of this magnitude. The Woodlands is close to two major airports, numerous parks, a bustling downtown and a luxurious resort for athletes and their families to enjoy. With plenty of amenities within walking distance, this pedestrian-friendly community makes it easy for visitors to find their way around town during race week.

Athletes will begin with a 2.4-mile swim in Lake Woodlands. The 112-mile bike course takes participants west through the scenic, rolling farmland of east Texas. The day ends with a 26.2-mile run taking place entirely within The Woodlands and concluding with a spectacular finish on Waterway Ave.

Memorial Hermann IRONMAN Texas presented by Waste Management offers 75 qualifying slots for the IRONMAN World Championship in Kailua-Kona, HI.

Again The Woodlands is a great location for an Ironman, after 3 years of hosting the Ironman you can bet it will be hot race day. 
I have to thank a bunch of people who without them the race does not happen. 
 First off Michelle and my girls were troopers, they were out there as long as me! 
My girls Emma Rose and Molly even ran with me for a minute, great experience. 
That was a first. 
Second my good friend and web master Ruud Vuijsters. 
I had a calf issue going in and had not run for two weeks, and in the two weeks before the race Ruud had me on his table working out my calf. 
He had come to the conclusion by the time I got off the bike the calf would be heated up and I would be able to go and he was right, Ruud I owe you! 
Big thanks to Sean Schnur and Morgan Clarke who chased me all afternoon on the run, great support. Awesome running with man Ben Hawn also. 
Did not see everyone from Lafayette but was able to hang with Double Down Dave Leblanc for a bit on the bike, great competitor. 
Amy Leblanc stole the show finishing her first Ironman on a tuff day. 
Frank Garber, Collin Burnham and John Bougeois were also first time finishers. 
Great job guys. 
Also finishing from Lafayette was Troy Roussel, Angie Fontenot, Keith Baras, Acadiana had a great showing. I am sure I have missed someone, congrats to all the finishers.
Just want to say thanks to all the support out there yesterday, it was a hot and windy day. 
Big props to Kim Biggerstaff, Double Down Dave Leblanc and Cliff (out of B.R.), on completing their first Ironman, tough day to do your first. 
On the other hand Ben Hawn had a good day out there with a time of 12:25, he pulled Jimmy Bienvenu and I through. 
Boys and girl out of Baton Rouge had good days also with big man Cullen Talley dropping a 10:02 a PR for him, also Luke Sky Walker, D Williams and Susan Hayden, I am sure I am leaving someone out, just let me know. 
Again thanks for all the support, great to see people out on the course.
To top it off Chrissie Wellington was handing out the medals, very nice surprise! 
Our man Dave Leblanc did spend the night in the hospital but this morning he is all good. 
We will drink a beer at the Astro’s game today.
