With the thoughts of getting hit in the head alive and well in my brain I thought I’d investigate just how many athletes might be in the water on November 5th. I took the latest participants list on the Ironman Florida website and copied to Excel where I extracted the following numbers.
The 2011 Ironman Florida race has 3037 registered participants, 682 (22%) are female and 2355 (78%) are male. Over 200 of them are fellow Georgians.
The chart below includes most of the female age groupers.

If you don't get Universal Sports from your satellite or cable tv provide, like me, you might want to install an over the air digital tv antenna like I did.
