This season I have been trying to keep up with Triathlon, specifically Ironman race. I am trying to find ways to keep up with other events as well. I think this season has been a little easier for me because for several races I have known someone who is racing, which is pretty cool.
During the Galveston race, I downloaded Irontrac for my iPhone. The app updates frequently during the race. The hard part is picking out people to watch. For Ironman Texas, I followed a colleague from my old job. It was great to see someone I know finish the race, even though it was from an app on my phone.
I am looking for suggestions on other phone applications to keep up with other events. Also, why aren’t more races televised? I get that the whole race would be tough, but transition and ins/outs would be cool.
