I'll be doing my first in Montauk on 10/5!

Original plan was to hit that distance next year, but I feel I can prepare myself in time for the event and finish strongly.

No, I will not be moving IM up a year to 2009. I will need 'til 2010 to get my head around that distance. It will also be a good goal for turning 35.

I will be doing Black Diamond in Washington State as my last tune up to IMAZ.  Have heard it is a cold swim.

Completed one in April and will do one more this fall.  Most likely the Las Vegas Triathlon.

So I am a newbie! I just started training for my first triathlon about 2 months ago. I did a sprint about 2 weeks ago and went well. I am quite addicted to this sport. I have an Olympic coming up in about 4 weeks and I feel ready for it. 

I am seriously considering signing-up for the 1/2 IM in Cancun in mid September (2 months from now). Is that too ambitious? I am hoping to get 1/2 IM in before the end of the year and see how it goes. Any feedback? I am in decent shape but before my training started i was only riding my bike about 20 miles ~3 times a week. 

I welcome any thoughts or feedback...

Thanks!

Cristian

On Sunday I completed my first HIM. I did as I expected. I missed a turn on the bike so I lost a few minutes there and I still need to speed up my transitions. I am signed up for the IMAZ in November so yesterday was a test of my gear and nutrition plan.

The next four months will be spent making sure I don't kill myself on the 23rd of November.

I just got back from IMLP but I am kicking around the idea of Diamondman Half on 9/7... Did it last year and really liked it... Any other BTer's on board for it? I'll have to look back through this thread.

Well, I hired a coach today for my first IM in Wisconsin 2009,  She tells me I'll be doing the half in Florida in May and as I've sworn to do everything I am told, I guess I am doing it!

Good Luck ^^^^

I am doing Beast of the East HIM on 9/20. Hills, hills, and more hills. I just looked at the run course and found out why it is called the Beast of the East. There is a massive hill leading up to the dam (on the other side), and it 8/10 of a mile long with 175 feet of climbing. The good part is that I will get the chance to run it twice, since it is a two loop course.
