Here is mine if you want to persue it.

I thought there were enough.  As I said, it is much more low key than the usual CTA event (which I've done many).  There were only about 200 or so people on the bike course after the straight swimmers finished their race.  About 300+ people in the swim.

Thanks for the feedback.  I am waiting to see how my HIM goes before I sign up.  It's my third HIM so I don't expect any hangups.  I really just need time to get the $$ together for the entry fee.  I am excited about the low key nature of the event and that is a large appeal for me.  I have found my favorite local runs are the low key ones so I am ready to go it alone on the bike at times.  If this IM goes well, I may try to enter a branded IM but that is a choice for another day.  I still have to figure out lodging for the ChesapeakeMan.  Any ideas where to stay?  The onsite hotel is a bit pricey so I may choose something else.  As we get closer we should all coordiante so we can meet up at the event.  Happy Training everyone/.

I went with the host hotel. l;ess hassle on raceday. the race website lists some other hotels inthe area. thought someone mentioned they close the bridge early don't know if that is a big issue or not but may be something tokeep in mind.

Does anyone know what the ChasapeakeMan rate is at the Hyatt. I finally took the plunge and signed up for the ultra distance this week and I need accommodations. I know I could probably just call them and they would tell me the rate, but I would have a hard time saying no if they tried to talk me into booking right there on the phone without consulting the Mrs.

I have been doing tris/marathons for over 10 years and HIMs for the past 4 years and I NEVER trained this much.  It is a serious challenge to get it all in this month with work, family & projects around the house(including a new deck I am installing this weekend.  I can't wait to give this one a go in Sept to see what it is like.  What is everyone shooting for as far as finish times?   I am shooting for 11 1/2-12 hours.

I'm just hoping to finish.  After that, I'd like to finish under 13 hours.  And then I'd like to finish under 13hrs, smiling, still being able to walk over to have a beer with friends!!! 
I hope the next 5 weeks goes by somewhat quickly!

I know the feeling.  I was right on target with training and then we decided to build our deck this past weekend.  No workouts for 3 days and I was freaked out.  Calmed myself down and I am back in the saddle again.  It really is quite a grind trying to keep up your training for an Ironman.

In case anyone hasn't seen, the website has the new swim course map. Instead of two loops of the Eagleman course (this year's or last year's), it is two laps completely in Hambrooks Bay. Updated bike course looks a little different as well.
