To the editor:
Upon wrapping up the 15th Ironman Lake Placid, I would like to express my thanks for making 2013 such a great event. From the volunteers, who really run the show, to the all-too-numerous-to-mention local businesses, police, fire, ambulance, highway crews, you make Lake Placid and the surrounding communities shine.
We realize there are inconveniences and problems that go along with any undertaking of this magnitude, but I think we know how to make it work with a smile. Ironman Lake Placid is the highlight of the Ironman circuit, and the real credit goes out all our neighbors, friends and visitors. I cannot say 'Thank you!' enough.
