1 - The traditional method:
- Go to http://ironmanlive.com/
- Click on Tracking
- Enter my bib number: #2486
At Timberman in 2009 I tried the myathletegps device to help my family with knowing where I was on the course during a race. Unfortunately we found out (at the same time as the myathletegpsfolks) that the cell coverage was so poor both at transition and out on the course that these devices were rendered useless. Myathletegps did the right thing and refunded all of the rental fees without our even asking at that race.
I read that they were renting these devices at IMFL and decided to try it again after they assured me that the experience at IMFL would be good. The caveat is that there is a few spots on the bike that have limited coverage but they said that they have had many positive experiences in the Panama City vicinity. So to track me you can:
- On Web Browsers & iphones: http://track.MyAthleteLive.com/vemap.aspx?name=035977
- Handheld PDA/Blackberry/Palm: http://track.MyAthleteLive.com/pda.aspx?name=035977
3 - The "groupie" method. Yes there will be groupies at IMFL. I can't express my appreciation enough for you. In case you are having a problem picking me out - I'm the old, slow, fat guy wearing #2486.
Additionally I've asked one of the prime stalkers (aka my daughter) to update my Facebook ( Joe Rockstri) and Twitter ( @JoeRockstri ) from time to time while I toil the Panama City course.
Thanks, everyone, for all the support!
