Gee must be nice to have Jan

Gee must be nice to have Jan and Feb off! What i would do is travel somewhere warm and
train for a race. Maybe Florida Sanibel Island is nice that time of year if you like peace and
quiet if not miami! Have fun sooo jealous!:)

Not many races in the states

Not many races in the states around in that time frame, look at Ironman 70.3 Pucon for the race and the post race activities.... I did it last year and it was an awesome trip. Less than 24 hours after doing the race I up climbing the local, active volcano...

Gordon Byrn and Endurance

Gordon Byrn and Endurance Corner does a tri camp in Tuscon, but not until March. I know some of those guys and they are very good coaches/athletes. Chuckie V does a camp in Solvang, CA. Last year Peter Reid helped coach.

This year there was a sprint

This year there was a sprint and Olympic Tri at Manzanillo (Mexican Pacific Coast) on Feb 23. They still haven't published when it will be for 2009, but I guess it will be in the same week. I guess that we can find out the date for 2009 in a couple of months at www.asdeporte.com/inlife
