Yup.  Heat and races longer than on Oly and I do not get along.

I know nothing of NC 70.3, is that the former B2B?

I’d like to race it this year, though August will be brutal. But as I mentioned, I’m so not confident any race will happen this year.  Augusta is an interesting choice too. It will be crazy hot and probably really crowded as it is always offered as one of the options for postponed races. What to do, what to do!

Does it bother anyone else that they didn't put the options in chronological order? OK, carry on. Interested to see what you all decide - not sure what I would do!

Your coworkers' stories are so funny!
I have a young IT coworker who stayed all night last night to save the (virtual) world (he gets a bonus vide games night for overtime work with chores and being a good boy).
The furry co-worker did her night shift messing around with my 1,000 puzzles, in search of a nice box to fit in...
My little communication and public relations manager is on special mission today, visited her grandma. So it's pretty quite down here today

I quick changed my hotel reservation to August pending an actual decision. Likely one of the Choo choices or IMNC for me. Glad that May can be removed from the books.

Just wanted to say sorry about the race cancellation. All of my events through May (waiting to hear on my A race in June) have been cancelled. I know that these are first world problems in the big scheme of things but that doesn't mean it's not disappointing.

yes it is.

IMNC is "river swim" (saltwater), flat but perhaps windy bike, flat run. Closer to home for me so there is that.

Yup.  Heat and races longer than on Oly and I do not get along.

Yes, most likely 3 or 5 here as well. I need to consult with Kevin.

i decided to book for August just in case and the 2 Marriotts were already sold out! But Hilton wasn’t and it was lots cheaper, so yay! But man, people are fast. Since booking - used booking . Com, I’ve gotten about 10 confirmation notices - I better check how many rooms I booked!

Just thought of a potential wrinkle for NC 70.3 - that's hurricane season, right?  And it got nailed 2 years ago, right?  But I sure like the sound of the air temp average - 65*F!  I will need to weigh this out for sure.

Another thing to consider is when will pools open? I realize Choo is an easy swim, but I’d still like to get in some training! Now leaning toward next year and maybe this year a year of short course tris and or bike events ( if there are any)

Ah! That's a valid concern...

I am also sorry for all the cancelled events. especially the big ones, and for those of you who have trained for something big and challenging..

Only since IM bought it. Go figure.

Water temp may well be higher than air temp.

I called to cancel my reservation. The hilton has a wonderful recording explaining that, due to the current situation, people are working from home so please understand if you hear pets or children in the background. That made me smile.

Funny, as part of my real job, I wrote a similar script for our Care agents to say if they had unexpected background noise. My company sent 2,000+ call center agents to work from home over the past 3 weeks - unprecedented! But seems to be working well!

Interesting. I am wondering how that may change the future work enviroment. My current employer never wanted to hear about remote work (private university), but recently started allowing some folks, due to lack of actual physical office space... Now almost all of us are working from home. And it seems to work really well. So far absolutely everyone is responsive, the work is being done.
My departmnt always struggles with finding new lab space, and places for new students. Having some admin folks working from home would definitely help solving the problem...
