The main races I will focus on this year are:

  • Quassy Half aka "The Beast of the East"
  • Escape the Cape (Hoping to qualify for age group nationals again)
  • Ironman Lake Placid
  • Bike relay for Ironman Atlantic City 70.3

What's on your list?

The TriFesta sounds like a lot of fun. I did the Disney Star Wars Darkside Challenge last year, but that was just running.  It would be really fun to do a multi-day tri like that.  Is that race near you?

Jordan- sounds like a fun race!! Maybe need to come down for a visit and race for the weekend one time!

My schedule is similar to Ace...

Quassy 70.3
Escape the Cape Sprint- great race if anyone wants to travel up for it!
Bender Marathon 8 Mile Swim
AC 70.3 Relay- SWIM

Im going to sprinkle some other races in there through the summer, but my main focus for the 2nd half of the season will be to get into tip top swim shape for the 8 miler and want to be fast for the 70.3 AC race.

Every once in a while I think about joining you on this and then I snap out of it and realize how dumb of an idea it is!  ;D

The more I think about it the less inclined I am to do it.  IMLP is the only big event I need this year.
