Coming in from the Midwest to participate.  Is the expo decent on Saturday?  How is the lake for the swim?

Expo is so-so, but you have to go for packet pick up so not a big deal to walk around and check it out.   I can say it is a good place to pick up a few last minute items perhaps not packed and maybe get a few deals on race gear etc.   Can also rent wheels/wetsuits as well if I remember right.  

The lake is great to swim in.   Some miraculous way they always make it wetsuit legal, but you would be fine without it.   Lake is semi-clear and decent visability which is rare for our lakes down here.   No gators (that I have ever seen) and I really like the swim portion of this race.  

Good luck as this is one of the better 1/2's they have here in FL.

I agree with the previous poster, expo is not great but I did pick up a SwiMp3 for half price last year.  The lake is great, I'm pretty sure its spring fed which is why its wetsuit legal and fairly clear.  It is a really well run race, the only issue I had was the tram that goes to the zoo, it doesn't run enough.  My family missed my finish while waiting for the next trip.

Race week is here.  Is everyone ready?  Personally I'm nowhere near being in Race shape but I'll waddle through it anyway, but it's not going to be pretty.

Leaving Friday to drive down.  First HIM.  From talking to others this is a great race and I decided this as my first HIM as opposed to Augusta 70.3.

Safe travels to all and good luck.

I am with you in terms of race-ready, but will enjoy it.   Weather is going to be perfect.  See you all there.
