I am.

After two years in a row of not signing up in time, I'm really looking forward to finally doing this race!

I expect to race.  Reston Oly brings out most of the local fasties and is extremely.  The opportunity for an OWS in NoVA is pretty rare.

I plan on winning.

Will the fasties give me a head start of 30 minutes or so?

Anyone hear anything about the water temp?  Do they typically announce it at packet pickup?

Also - The web site says they will do helmet inspection at packet pickup.  But do they also do bike inspection?  Just trying to figure out what to bring tomorrow...

Fun race, except the cliff that you have to climb right before the 300 meters on the track.

Met two BT-ers  JeffDav and hooslisa.  Both uber nice.  But Lisa is faster and cuter.

Good to meet you in person finally Mike.  It was a good race despite the conditions. 

I'm curious if anyone heard anything about the dude who plowed into the white mercedes on Ridge Heights Rd.  I went by prob 2 min after it happened.  Awful.  I hope he's alright.

I heard a few broken fingers and a few missing teeth. He was conscious 10 seconds after the accident. The woman driving supposedly completely froze up and stopped right in front of him.

Also - I just posted my race report :-)


I had written it all up on Tuesday, but after I hit submit a 'log file full' error happened and I lost everything - grrr...
