Registration for a new Ironman in Boulder (8/3/2014), opens up tomorrow. Even though I have announced my retirement from this distance after Placid, this sounds entertaining to me. Anyone else on the bubble for it?

Racing at 6K feet... yikes!

I was really tempted to do this race as I lived in Boulder for six years and went to school there, but I'm really looking forward to not doing an ironman next year.

I will say, those 6k feet take the spring out of your step. I did the Bolder Boulder 10k Memorial Day weekend with my parents and my 10K time was slower than my nations split last year to give you a little perspective.

I just signed up with 2 buddies from the DC Area.

Sounds like people have some concerns about the altitude so perhaps this won't be as popular as I expected. Curious to see how quickly this sells out.

Thanks to Tuan for his tips on registration tactics.

I think I may wait until HH tomorrow night, if it's still open. Thankfully, they wouldn't let me register unless I renew my USAT membership. Maybe I need some KoolAid.
