Are you signed up for Oliver this year? Noticed you raced it in 07. There are a bunch of us racing in it in 09, should be a great time!

I'm in...will be my 2nd IM.

This will be a big adventure for my family as we'll do a family vacation/IM trip. I'm not sure how many of our kids will come as our twin sons will be 20 and may not be interested.

We aren't sure where we are staying but hope to rent a place. Another family from MA suggested we find a bigger place and split it.

We have some leads but mentally aren't ready to make decisions yet.

Hi all, I'll be retuning to Penticton for my 4th time.  But it has been 7/8 years since I last raced in this beautiful part of the world.  Look forward to sharing stories as we all prepare!

I did IM Canada this year for the first time and I'm signed up for next year too. I just finally found the BT race listing for '09. Train well, and I hope to meet some of you in Penticton.

With registration opening up twice more folks from far away were able to register like me. There are about 12-14 folks from MA doing the race. I'm not sure if all 5 of our kids will come, but one of my twin son's who is 19 keeps talking about it and can't wait. He had a blast at IMLP and really looks forward to watching me do another IM plus going to BC will be new fun adventure.

Our plans are to fly to Seattle  and drvie up and maybe leave MA the weekend before the race to help adjust to time difference and recover from the long flight/drive. Southwest flies to Seattle and bringing a bike is only $50 each way and we are hope to use some frequent flier miles for some tickets.

It is cool that so many BTers are doing the race.

I'm in too, after 8 years of sitting on the sidelines cheering everyone down the finishing chute I've decided to race it.

First time here! Watched in 2007, was blown away by it all, volunteered at the finish line in 2008, and figured I better get my a$$ across that finish line in 09!!!

This will be my first IM - very much looking forward to it. Anybody else coming from Texas?

The bitter sweet of it is my wife may not be able to travel if there are any complications with the baby or if it turns out to be twins...
