I hate this
I have wanted to do this one triathlon that is right next to my house for th past three years, the first year, I just chickened out and didn't sign up. the past two years, though, I just havent been able to get in! If anyone has ever heard of the Columbia triathlon, it is absolutly impossibleto get in...its in May, you have to sign up by new years day, pretty much, to get in. I tried this year around the 5th of January with no luck.
I then read about these "extra" slots. they have extra slots that the charities took. they then charge 250 bucks plus the cost of entry for the tri. I just dont think thats right, triathlons are already too freakin expensive, often costing in the 60-70 dollar range. plus, those slots aren't gonna get taken, I know they'll be slots left over that people didn't want to pay 320 dollars for.
I dunno, but I'm kinda disgusted.
