Chicago Triathon Clyde Division - join me

Didn't know if I should put this in the Tri-section but figured it would get more traction here.

So who's going to do it? I hope to below Clyde for it but I think I'll be right on the border line of 200lbs by then...

So I think I'll register for that division and worst case I will not weigh enough to compete!

If anyone is doing it I am always looking for training partners...particuarly for the H20

I'm afraid I'm not going to join you, but I'll be with you in spirit. It's great that you are entering, and I also think it's great that the Chicago Tri has so many Clyde categories. Please follow up on this thread and let us know how your training is going and how race day goes.

Any other Clydes doing tris this summer?

There's a chance (like slim to none, but still, a chance) I'll be there to support my wife. I'm not permitted to compete 'against' her, however.

Thanks guys! I will let you know how it goes...

CastIron I know what you mean...mine won't even go riding with me because we just turn it into a race. And I whip her which she hates.
