If you have a desire to do Ironman Arizona this year but got shut out, consider racing for a charity. I did it last year with Smile Train which is an organization that helps kids with cleft lip and palate obtain the necessary surgery at no cost. The organization provides guidance for how to generate the necessary donations and also rolls out the red carpet in terms of providing coaching and VIP services before and during the race. If you have an interest or want additional information email Sarah Coulam at Smile Train: scoulam@smiletrain.org and let her know you saw Noah's post on the BT forum

Downside is that if you do not raise the $5k you tend to pay out of pocket for these kind of things. That could make it a pricey race. Buying a charity slot would probably be cheaper. Just sayin.

Did it last year-- not so hard to get people to contribute. The charity helps with support plus anything you do contribute is tax deductible. I wound up contributing some and it was my main charitable deduction for this year's taxes.

This was amazing last year! Smile Train Team Empower provided the most support I have ever had for any race as well as for my family. 95% of my fundraising was through Facebook no problem. Plus they have a group who personally help you fundraise. I highly recommend signing up through Smile Train.

I have a pain deep in my calf about five inches below the knee. A sports doctor did not feel anything wrong in the muscle, and there was no bruising. The tender spot can still be felt on massage.

What would cause my foot to fall asleep after running about 3 miles and then have a numb spot on the top of my instep?

I was not an official; I simply observed the race and the officials doing their thing. Here is what I saw:
