Countdown Timers

I decided to install two countdown timers on my blog using  I purchased a Pro account for only $9.95 which provides a bit more design flexibility.  I purchased a Pro account because I think I can use the site to create timers for the Southern Crescent Cycling website.  We participate in a lot of events as a group.

Creating a single countdown timer was easy.  Creating two different timers for use simultaneously in the same blog article was a bit of a pain.  The embeddable script kept wanting to create two duplicates of one timer or the other.  I finally got it to look something like what I wanted and quite editing.  The problem apparently has something to do with the - value="eid=325798&fmt=f3" and value="eid=325779&fmt=f3".  When I edit the article text the timer script value changes for no apparent reason.

Anyway, here are my timers for my two big races of the year - Ironman Augusta 70.3 and Ironman Florida.

Thanks for reading.
