it's going to be exciting and hot!
Can't wait. Will be lots of fun!
This will be my first! I am scared cause dont do well in the heat even though i live in the
south! Good thing my coach and 4 other people are signed up so i have plenty of training
partners. If anybody has done this race please let me know about the heat. See ya all there!;)
This will be my first time, too! Nervous about the heat, but hoping I can prepare myself for it!
I am gonna be there! I live in Louisville and this will be my first Full 140.6!
I'm in also...did it last year and yes...its damn hot. Go into it knowing that and being prepared for it and its not an issue. It's a great race, well put on, and a great venue.
Enjoy and see you there.
It can't be that hot in Louisville in August...I saw that it is usually in the 80's...I live in Texas and train all summer when it's 100+ degrees for over a month at a time...We'll see!! See you all there...
This will be my first IM as well. From what I was told it's not just the heat but also a very hilly ride.
This will be my first full, just completed Oschner 70.3 New Orleans where temperature was 85 with 80% humidity. It was nothing to what we can see here in Louisville in August. I have lived here my entire 46 years. Prepare for high heat index with very high humidity. Cant wait.
Did that race in '07 and '08-- wound up in the hospital overnight for dehydration in '08-- you need to drink like it is your job--- drink, drink, drink and when you don't think you can drink anymore-- take another drink! Good luck, all!
This was a great race 2009! The weather couldnt have been better high of 75 we def. lucked out! I did better then i expected felt great almost the whole race! Swim 1:33 Bike 6:29 run 4:19 overall 12:38:12
