The night before the big day you always have your ironman meeting. Here's a few of the goodies that you get.
When you have a wonderful wife she knows that the meal you eat the night before is very important for your performance. Aly fixed baked salmon, with pineapple sauce, brown rice, fresh green beans, green salad, with honey rolls. Yummm! Ken and I were smart. We spent the night and ate well.
