So after much debating and discussion with domestic niner I've finall selected my tune-up race in advance of IM St George. The original plan was to do Texas 70.3, but after reviewing flight costs, accomodations, and a car rental it just didn't make sense. I was contemplating not racing at all but hey I haven't raced since IM 70.3 WC in Clearwater back in 2010. I had Leadman Tri in Las Vegas on the radar for March 31st but flights to Vegas hadn't been looking much cheaper than Houston. We checked Westjet last night and low and behold there was some seat sales. A quick discussion with the wife followed and she quickl gave me the nod of approval. Sweet...! I booked my flight, registered for the race - check out the ST forums for $75 code, and booked my accomodations. So now it's go time.
Heading out of town today for a couple weeks of work, more like evaluation, up in Cold Lake. Should be fun!
