First, hope to see you everyone at NOLA 2012, I caught the early bird special.  Just finished Austin with a less than spectaculer effort.  Hoping to redeem myself in April.

Planning on trying this race in 2012 as running in the heat is one of my weak parts of my racing.

How do you get back to the transitions area to pick up your stuff? It looks like the transition areas are far from the finish.

Where are the good hotels to stay at?

If I fly in do I need to rent a car?

There is a bus that runs from the finish line back to transition so you can get your stuff.  I stayed at the host hotel the first year and a marriot I believe last year to make race morning easier.  The host hotel is a bit expensive but there are lots of hotels nearby.  As for a car, I would rent a car to make things easier but others may want to chime in.

I am about to get all signed up. This will be my first HIM. Pretty Nervous about the swim getting cancelled. Is there a likely hood of it happening again?/ I guess what I am asking-is that a normal thing for NOLA 70.3?

I did NOLA 2010 and the swim was on, 2009 (from the race results) looks like the swim was on so 2011 seems to be the only year I can find info on that the swim was cancelled.  Not sure if that helps or not.  Either way, see you there!

Swim was cancelled in 2011 and nearly  cancelled in 2010 because it was so rough,  but most people were able to finish. Keep in mind this is New Orleans and is at sea level so higher winds and severe storms are common in April, but hopefully everything will be great this year!
