The wife and I are planning on doing this one again this year. I'll be trying not to place last in the clydesdale division. Anyone else in for this race?

Here's the discussion thread from last year:

I'm doing it this year. I've done most of the tris from Destin-Mobile but haven't done this one yet. I'm exciting and hoping and place in my AG.

Also, did they have awards for first timer and fat tire catagories last year?

IIRC they did do awards for those divisions.Don't hold me to that, though.

Here are last year's results. I believe they did awards for top three with gender and age divisions (over/under 40).

I'll be on a MTB but I registered in clydesdale because the men's fat tire division was looking sparse.

Water temp last year was 79*, and the weather was perfect. Fingers crossed that this year's the same.

I mapped out the ride and it only came out to 5.5 miles online. I'm going to ride it today and check for sure. I'm hoping it's actually 8. I'll be there either way! It's bummer they had to move the course but i'm glad they didn't cancel.

It is hard to decipher from the mutlisport website, but it looks like there are two loops. They even have a video of the race director driving the second loop. Looks like it should be pretty close to 8 miles.

I am just glad they didn't cancel.

Race turned out great. Cool little course. Fun after party. Got my first trip to the podium as icing on the cake!

That sure was a fun race. The swim was fast and really physical. I would've done a lot more 200-300yd sprints and fewer 500-1000yd sets in the pool if I knew that's how it was going to be.

Congrats on the podium (you got 2nd in Clydesdale under 40?), I was 5th in that category. Ran the fastest 3mi of my life, but still have some work to do to be able to string together sub 8 min miles. Also haven't yet figured out pacing on the bike to know how hard I can push and still have something in the tank for the run.

In all a good race and I'm really glad they were able to relocate it and not have to cancel.

I'm curious about the 'don't increase your run by more than 10% per week' rule. Is there a minimum mileage under which this doesn't apply?

Is gear overlap from the big to small ring a consideration? Will the ratio increment of the compact setup be very beneficial to my riding?

How should I go about training for the marathon while also building base in the other two events? Doing this seems like it's causing me to break the 10% rule in running.

The schedule consists of 3 workouts per week in each sport, 2 days of strength training and core work too. The maximum volume is around 7 hours toward the end of the 12 weeks.

Yes, the Dual is a little heavier than Cervèlo’s high end counterparts. But…the price is within reach of the masses and it still incorporates all of the design features that make a Cervèlo special.
