Good point. I was just thinking they would get more people 'hooked' on IM.

I think there has to be a better way then just letting the guy with the fastest computer i/o get in.

I heard they are going to build an even bigger climb for 2014......the carnage will be epic.

Did anyone one else that recieved a confirmation of entry to the race also recieve the e-mail from IM that they are not in but are beleived to be in the group that may be eligible for the additional slots or early registration to the other IM's?  I did and I have questioned them via e-mail, but have not recieved a response yet. 

Just found it funny that I have a confirmation number and my credit card has been charged, but yet I still fell in that catagory.

That is rather disconcerting given that you cc was charged and you have a conf no.

I called Active and the are claiming that I am registered and that I received the e-mail by mistake.  I have e-mailed the official race e-mail address but have yet to recieve a response.  It was a forward of the confirmation so hopefully at some point I get a response from there as well.

There is a new video on YouTube of the Chattanooga course and you can get free simplified turn by turn directions (compared to the mapmyride uploads) at www.tricoursehd.com for the course on their blog page. Just search for Chattanooga ironman bike course on youtube to find the video.

Over the past couple of months I've been waking up with a sore heel. Right in the center, it feels like I stepped on a pebble and bruised it. The pain, fairly minor, goes away as the day progresses.

Now, for the last 20 years I’ve always though that jogging seemed about as interesting as watching paint dry, and you know what? That’s how it turned out to be.

A Navy Seals program modified specifically for triathletes. This workout is DIFFICULT!!! The weight training portion alone may make you cry.
