is almost complete.
there are a few more races I'd like to do (Cherry Blossom, Army 10 Miler), but IM Cozy is really pricey, and I can't justify any more ...plus, I need to keep in mind the travel to and from Rhode Island 70.3. fortunantly, the other races are all [relatively] close by.
I will add one or two century rides, but they are (1) relatively inexpensive [although to a 'normal person', paying $35 to ride 100 mi is ridiculous], and (2) not really races [training].
22 March: National Triathlon
17 May: Columbia Triathon (Oly)
12 July: Ironman 70.3 Rhode Island (HIM)
13 September: Diamondman Triathlon (HIM)
26 September: Chesapeakeman Ultra Triathlon AquaVelo (IM swim/bike)
29 November: Ironman Cozumel (IM!)
I am SO excited for 2009 and am ready to get the season going. Starting in March, I have a race every other month (two in September) until Cozumel. Although each race is its own event, all races are mainly training/ prep for IM Cozy.
Even more exciting? My tri girlfriends are doing most of these, too [they are doing Shamrock the weekend before National]. It's so nice to someone to race 'with', even if you don't actually race together.
