Should I be calling Hanna a female dog? No, I won't walk in the flesh. Anyway, I'm racing on Sunday but only doing the bike and run portions of the race. This is the latest....
Good afternoon and welcome to the 2008 Patriots Sprint and International distance triathlons. This email is to highlight a few important tid bits of information regarding the event as well as give you an update on the Hurricane Hanna situation.
Hurricane Hanna: We are looking good for Sunday. It's the folks in the Half that are biting their fingernails. Should anything change for Sunday, we'll post it online on the VTS homepage as soon as we know. Right now, we are good to go for Sunday.
The Sprint will start at 8AM, the International will start at 9AM.
There will be no swim due to poor water quality (debris, runoff, etc) There will be no packet pick up on Saturday, there will be packet pick up from 6AM to 8AM on race morning. There will be no refunds or credits given for Sundays event.
Now I shouldn't be complaining, my 1/2 Iron comrades had their race cancelled. I would be so bummed if I had just spent 4 months of my life training and dreaming of race day for it only to be cancelled. I think I would find a race really fast and sign up. I'm just excited that I'll get to race on Sunday even if it means that I only do the two portions, swimming wasn't my favorite anyway. I'll catch you on the other side......
