White Tiger overlooks the revolutionary 4-lap Y-shaped swim course

White Tiger overlooks the revolutionary 4-lap Y-shaped swim course

The madness of interviews and media died down today and I was able to chill out and get my pre-race stuff done. Got the Tiger checked in and kind of pumped that instead of our bib #’s on the transition racks, we got name tags!

White Tiger begins the wait to be unleashed

Well, I did actually get one last interview from Paul of Cycling News Asia as I was racking up White Tiger. Apparently all the Chinese forums have their money on me to win. No pressure! ;)

NO SLOW!!

There are these black and yellow construction signs by the transition area, with the Chinese character for “slow” on it (as in, “caution”). I was going to take a picture by it, but not when I realized what it said. NO SLOW FOR THE WONGSTAR!!

dont feed the tiger...its MY sticky rice!!

I’ve been enjoying the food here…I know I am pretty Americanized but sometimes I don’t realize how Chinese I am until I am actually in China. Sure Thai food is great but I didn’t realize how much I miss Chinese food until I got here! I love going to the supermarket here and hitting up the prepared food section. Feels just like at home…sticky rice, potstickers, Chinese noodles and other dim sum!

I’m pretty pumped up for tomorrow, definitely recovered from Malaysia and ready to rock it again. You can track us online at Ironman.com starting at 7am China time on Sunday, which for my family at home is 3pm Saturday California time. I am bib #26! Thanks for all your support! :D
