EnduraSport Triathlon this weekend?

Anyone doing the Harryman in Harriman state park (just outside NYC) this saturday?

My fiance and I are doing the olympic and our friend anna iron girl is doing the half-iron distance.

Look for me there: slow swim, fair bike and quick run (hopefully!)
I've worked on my swim a lot from last year so hopefully that can be bumped to fair too :-)

I did this race last year and I have to send out props to Genesis Adventure and the EnduraSport Tri. It was a great time!

HA! well, you all missed out! It was an awesome event and perfect sunny weather (last year it rained and was cold). The swim was choppy, and I have once again realized I just have no friggin idea how to do an open water swim. Pools I'm ok at, open water, I might as well just do the back stroke the whole way... I REALLY need to work on breathing.
I knocked off some time from my T1 and T2 this year though, so I was happy. I was also several minutes faster on the bike, though despite better shape this year, I was around 1:30 min slower on the run although I FELT much stronger. It took me until mile one (of 10K) to get my running legs and then it was fun.

The hill was HARD. As they put it: "The bike course is a difficult 14-mile loop course with 1,500 total feet of elevation gain/loss per lap." and man you feel that climb (most of it is in one hill that stretches about a mile or so). I went from 19.5 mph ave to 16.0 after the hill (and I was not passed, it was just a 5mph hill!)
Anyway, can't wait till next year but in the mean time, I want to find a nice, flat olympic distance!
