IM website shows it is the 26th. Maybe they moved it a week to give it more time to get really hot?

So wait, Randee lied to us?!

No I just can't read a calendar

Possible TVA-related drama...

TVA observes water levels of Tennessee River ahead of IRONMAN triathlon

I saw that and had flashbacks to our 2018 the river has run wild and the ecoli is high swim is canceled event! I also see from the story that the bike has been shortened to 11 miles. That will make the run much easier

So much fun!  11 mile bike and then a wee but hilly run.  The only issue is will there still be drunks out on the run course to cheer you on?

HAHAH!! That's the best thing I've read all day!!

And regarding the swim - DH is keeping me updated. I've got my money on cancelled. CRAZY though. And I think the weather still looks good because the race is definitely THIS coming weekend :D

I am really sorry you have to deal with this. There is no way that i could deal with that. My heart breaks - and it makes me want to run and pick up my kids from school to just to hold them tight.

Is anyone racing or doing anything else fun this weekend?

My thoughts are with you on this Jim. I worked a lot of homicides over the years and was fortunate to never have to go out on one involving a child. Hang in there.

Talk on the Choo FB site that a pro said at his/her meeting the RD said swim may be canceled b/c of high Ecoli in the river. Flashbacks to 2018! If so, at least they will get nice weather for the rest of the race.

Hahaha! How many will be searching for a pool to swim before the race?

of course, I sometimes think our race was “just” a long duathlon and I need a do over!

Just got home from Augusta 70.3. I had a lovely 13 mile bike ride behind the 3rd place pro male as their "escort" (it's really to let the crowd know who the leaders are on the 2 lap course).

My 1st 3rd place pro, Jason West, came out of T21 on fire & made up a 1:40 gap in 6 miles (he was running a 5:10-ih pace). His run was so impressive to watch.

Once he moved into 2nd, my new guy was Tim Reed. He was in the hurt locker pretty bad & almost made 2 wrong turns.

Saw Tim O'Donnell pushing both kids in a stroller while Rinny was on the run.

There was a medical event during the swim. I was by transition when the med team flew by in a gator. They were doing chest compressions on the man & continued after getting him in the ambulance. The ambulance didn't leave for a good 10 minutes, so I don't know if that was a good thing (maybe got a heart rhythm back?) Or a bad thing.

Weather was perfect. Low humidity & high of 81.

I just signed up for the Oregon 70.3 in July. I'll be doing the swim and the bike and our friend Tim is doing the run.

Karen, I may be coming up with questions for you! As in, I know they said there is no morning clothes drop at the swim start, but do you remember if they have a special needs drop for glasses?

Welcome to Oregon! I'll probably do the race again unless things are really back to normal for travel (which I somehow doubt) and Mom wants to do a Canada or overseas trip at that time. It's a beautiful course, normally the weather is great that time of year (it was a bit hotter than usual this year), and hopefully they will iron out the swim start issues.

There actually DID end up being a morning clothes drop at the start (positioned maybe 300-400 yards away) although it had said in the online info there wouldn't be. Apparently they got pushback on that, set one up, and announced the change at the pre-race briefing the day before. Welcome news as otherwise they would have had thousands of discarded flip-flops.....It really was at least 1.2 miles (if not further) walk to the start, and I'm guessing a lot of people balked at doing it in throw-away shoes before a HIM. I'd just planned to sacrifice a very old pair of running shoes. So my guess is even if they don't have a special needs drop, you could put the glasses in a hard case and put them at the clothes drop, assuming you had another pair for the bike/run legs. I didn't see any vehicles at the start--it's off a bike path--so not sure how they would get special needs to T1 before the swimmers finish??
