Is anyone else going to be at this race? It should be interesting as it's a 5150 qualifier points race. I think there will be even more pros than normal at the race because of this.
I was really looking forward to this event. Unfortunately, I've had to take a bit of a break from training. (about 2-3 weeks) Something in my left hip became quite sore. Bad timing seeing how I've got 3 races in the next 5 weekends. (Columbia Oly, Mooseman Oly, IMMT 70.3).
I'm going to see how it feels on the Bike tonight. Then maybe try a run in the morning if it feels like it is ready to go.
If I go to Columbia it will be a training day. I don't have good access to an open water swim, so I'd love to go even just to race the swim.
The biggest challenge for me after the swim will be to stay in a training day pace. I have a hard time not giving it my all in a race environment.
Of course it would be cheaper just to stay home and train... but not nearly as fun.
