Que vent ...

My wave doesn't go off until 8:10!  Ugh!  I never thought I would say that I prefer a mass start, but I hate the idea of starting over an hour after the pros!

End Vent.


I'm only 5 minutes before you. #1258


I'm not that excited about being in the last wave, but I guess someone has to be.

Being in the last wave means it's just that many more of us you can pass on your way to the finish

That's one way to look at it, but I'm afraid if I make that a goal I'll go out to hard and blow up! HA! At least the bike part shouldn't be too crowded. I have to look at the positives.

I'm in for the Oly!  Wave 12 at 8:34  #1431.  First race in a long time (for me) without a 2 wave 35-39 male age group.  Nice!

sure it is..
call off work for the next two weeks,, do 6hrs training a day for days 1-12, then taper on the 13th & 14th day..

I'm Oly-ing. Bib# 1436, Green wave, 8:34 start. My first Oly, my 3rd tri ever.

BTW, if you are 1607, William F. with a start time of 8:42, you are listed with the Oly-ers. Not the sprinters. Those guys start at 7:12.

Yes it is the Oly I had a miss print, or brain fart one of the two but the 1607 is me for the Oly and a late enough start to catch wind on the run  But I do wish that I could start at 7:12 now that would be nice

Unless I'm missing it they changed the link and no longer have the same pdf attached.  The new one only shows wave and start time, no more names......Has anyone else noticed the change.

Yep, saw that yesterday. I had already downloaded the Oly, Sprint, and 70.3 waves with bib numbers before the change was made. If anyone is really interested and wants one of the files with names and bib numbers, PM me your email address and I will be glad to send it to you.

Last year I did 1/4 iron on Saturday and hung around after race. I walked to pier, around 2p and there were 6-8 folks coming out or donning wet suits to swim on their own.
