I'm thinking about doing this new half Ironman event in Rhode Island on July 13th.
Registration is supposed to open on November 10th (even though the main web page says 'accepting applications' now).
I have a few questions in my mind about it, though. I'd like to see some course maps before signing up (even though there's a detailed course description in the preliminary news release). It's going to be a two-transition race with a widely separated T1 and T2 which can be difficult with a lot of running around the day before to get your stuff prepared.
And it's about 375 miles away, which is a tough 7+ hour drive through the NY City and Hartford area for me.
Another reason to take a hard look at my 2008 calendar in the next couple of days!
Anyone else thinking about this one?
