A few quotes from today’s Ironman 70.3 Florida pro panel (provided by Ironman):

“I expected it to be tough. To get the nutrition right and trying to figure out the best plan during a race; it has been more intense than I thought – the level is high and the athletes are great and I have struggled with that (the nutrition) issue. – Lance Armstrong (In response to what surprised him most about his return to triathlon)

“This is my kickoff to the 2012. I raced before in Disney and loved it there and I think they (the organizers) have stepped it up even more here in Haines City. I think the bike course is going to be a bit of a challenge more challenging that it looks on paper.” – Amanda Stevens

“I love Florida and the heat. I arrived here on Wednesday and rode the bike course, it is great. The run will be a challenge.” – Nina Kraft

“The impression around the world of me is serious and intense but when my kids are around I try to be as goofy as much as I can.” – Lance Armstrong
