Hugh - it will be good to see you manning the tent as I proceed with this self professed lunacy. Vigo figured out a way to make the swim up hill yet? We should all start praying to the weather gods that it doesn't rain, again. Tuan - have any ideas for ritual sacrifice to weather gods? Maureen

a bowl of rice, incense, and testicle from a virgin water buffalo ... grilled not fried.

Ugh. In. (Note to folks - Eagleman is still open, with approx. 300 slots as of 9/8. -- Is the no-wetsuit fracas of 2010 keeping folks away?)

I'm in as well. Looking forward to seeing if these east coast hills stack up to the ones that kicked my butt in Seattle.

Eagleman is keeping me away from Eagleman: 1) Tidewater giving me the boot upon arrival 2) the heat wave 3) the traffic jam over the bridge on the way home - am I forgetting anything?

Any other 70.3s in the area that people would recommend as alternative to Eagleman. I hope that Tuan schedules Peasantman as a silent protest the same weekend!

More on Eagleman: eliminating close-in parking, local hotels overcharging and requiring a minimum stay, poor swim-course layout, no listing of Kona slot awardees, etc. I just get the impression that the race is more focused on the pros and take the age groupers for granted. A few 70.3s that I am considering in 2011: Rhode Island, Racine, or Musselman.

I did Providence 70.3 last yr and loved it. Ok - 2 transition areas was a bit of a drag - but loved being by the beach - the finish on the capitol grounds was a nice touch and all the hills - well - it was all the hills - still did not think the hills on the bike course were as tough as Columbia. Run course had its challenges. Post race - went out to the beach for steamers/clams at local clamshacks - oh so good!
