Roll Call: Savageman
POSTED: 8/18/09 11:11 AM

The Savageman Triathlon Festival is only about a month away. So who's up for torture (the International) or insanity (the Half)?

I'm in for a round of torture. I figure after my double header weekend, this will be a piece of cake. :)

I believe registration is still open for anyone who wants to attempt this race themselves or put together a relay. I also believe there is a need for volunteers, so come on up for that as well. Or do a relay and then volunteer.

I'm doing (not attempting - DOING) the half.

Is anyone else camping out in the park that weekend?

I, in a fit of insanity, signed up for Savageman (half) the day before Columbia where I promptly pulled a hamstring. I have used Savageman as my motivation for recovery. I'm doing it.

Oh-and I'm going up friday afternoon if anyone is looking for a ride (in an open air jeep wrangler).

I am in for the Insanity of the Half. I pre-rode the course 2 weekends ago, and now I am wondering... WHY THE HELL DID I SIGN UP FOR THIS?? Then I remember there was beer and testosterone in the air... Oh yeah and that whole brick in the concrete thing.

Did you have an iPhone and a credit card too? You have to be careful about combining those things.

Although, having seen you shoot up the wall first try, maybe you don't have to be careful.

I'll be there to sherpa and volunteer. Lovely hubby will be riding and running with a ringer doing the swim for his relay.

In the spirit of the SavageMan Roll Call thread, here is a link that will show you all the photos and videos taken of DC Tri club members at SavageMan the past two years.

There's a lot, so you can additionally filter to just the Westernport Wall or swim, bike, run, or whatever. You get the idea.

yes, there is that whole wall thing. In fact, Kyle, it was the videos that got me thinking I should do this. Funny but now with a month to go, the very same videos have me thinking, 'wtf was I thinking?''

So the race is now 3 weeks away and I haven't done anything about lodging. Anyone getting a group house? Camping? Hotels? Just trying to get a feel for what's going on.

It seems like a small DC Tri contingency so far.
