Has anyone done Ironman Hawaii 70.3 before and would you recommend it over EagleMan, which the week after? I've done EagleMan the last few years and thought Hawaii would be a nice change next year.
Registration opens today (8/3/2009 @ 12 noon EST)!
How fast does it normally fill up? Would you recommend staying at the resort (at least the few days before)?
Hawaii or Eagleman?
If you can afford Hawaii, I would do Hawaii 70.3 or Pucon or ZA. [btw, Branson, MO has a 70.3 now?! It would be better and harder in Dollywood. ]
If you can qualify, Hawaii 70.3 awards Kona (and Clearwater) slots. Very cool!
HI rocks! I have a nice hotel on Oahu - but don't know much about the other islands.
