Not sure if it's too early to start a thread but here it goes!

This will be my first race at BSLT! I've been reading some past race reports and it sounds like a challenging but solid course. Looking forward to it!

This will be my second BSL. Should be a hot one. The bike course is pretty fun, not looking forward to the sun on the run.

New run course this year. No more mini-Energy lab out and back. Its now two laps around lake. Should make humidity fun.

Just registered, it'll be my 2nd BSLT. Hope we get a repeat of the relatively nice 2013 weather.

With all the rain and cooler temps lately there's no telling what the end of June will look like.

I was looking at the new run course.  I don't mind two laps at all.  It's the 4 lap races I'm not a big fan of.

Let's hope June is drier than May. I had friends there this weekend, and a good stretch of the bike course is under water, out near the 3 climbs on the back side.

I hope everybody enjoyed that miraculous weather (miraculous for Lubbock in late June, anyway).

It was the morning of Ironman Newfoundland 70.3, I felt queasy. I didn't want to eat or drink anything. I had a full blown case of the pre-race HEEBEE GEEBEES.
